Move Stroock, Chadbourne, and Dechert up into top 10. They have larger class sizes and you NEED those interviews. You probably won't get Weil/Prosk/Kirkland that low because those firms are heavily bid. Jones Day is a wasted bid, IMO. Replace it with like Paul Hastings or a peer firm that has a larger summer class. Your goal should be to get employed. Bid firms that have larger class sizes/lower gpa cutoffs high and basically reverse order the list largest to smallest, factoring in interview slots (if this is 100% lottery) and M's history of placing students into those positions. Reach out to M alum and set up informational interviews. Mass mail like crazy. You're going to have to hustle.
