3.6 @ Duke Bid List ... HELP!

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Jul 26, 2012 7:03 pm

Hi everyone,

approx 3.6 GPA at Duke (3.3 median). My goal is to get ANY biglaw job, so I'm bidding to maximize the number of interviews I get, particularly with big class-size firms. Duke has pure lottery system, and I've included the number of available interview slots beside each firm. Unless otherwise noted, offices are NY. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

This should be a good list. I was in an almost identical spot last year, with a similar top-20 bids, and I got 12 callbacks. I would suggest putting S&C or Cravath higher on your bid list. But you'll be fine.
