Whether you come from a T14 school or not, ties to the area are important. If you go to a T14 and have ties to the area, that's great. You'll still get grilled about your commitment to KC because with so many candidates out there for so few positions, firms want to make sure that they're investing one of their slots in someone who will return.
cbs from BC, Husch, Shook and Polsinelli.
congrats! can you share how you got them? through OCI? Mass mail? or Job fairs?
Last December I e-mailed all of the firms in question, and had cbs at 2 of them. The other 2 I just met with for lunch since they didn't hire 1Ls. I mass-mailed them all a few weeks ago, for the coming summer and got the cbs.
