Michigan transfer - bidlist critique

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Jul 24, 2012 9:51 pm

I'm a transfer student so am desperately in need of help narrowing down my bids and choosing the order. Have no idea where employers will compare my GPA (3.76) to Michigan. 5 of the 30 are going toward other city, so I have to get the remaining NYC ones down to 25. TTT top 5% first year, no LR but nominated for writing award. Bidlist due tomorrow!

Cadwalader
Chadbourne & Park
Clifford Chance
Davis Polk Wardwell
Debevoise
Dechert
Fried Frank Harris
Gibson Dunn Crutcher
Hughes Hubbard Reed
Jones Day
Kasowitz

Morgan Lewis Bockius
Morrison Foerster
Nixon Peabody
OMelveny
Pillsbury Winthrop
Schulte Roth Zabel
Shearman & Sterling
Sidley Austin
Stroock & Stroock
Weil Gotshal
Willkie Farr Gallagher

Which can I throw out and where can I place the others for a reasonable shot? I've had about 36 hours to put this together so can use all the help I can get.
Thanks!

36 hours? Did they give you an extension?

Bit of an exaggeration. I've had since Monday morning and it's due tomorrow. "Highly" recommended to get in by tomorrow.

Credited. One of my friends is an M transfer now working at STB.

Second this. Not applicable to Michigan per se, but know someone who transferred out of USF and now works at STB Silicon Valley.

Not only do you need to add STB, but this should NOT be your bidlist order. PM me if you need help.
