Nixon Peabody Long Island/Rochester

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Jul 31, 2012 8:32 pm

First, yes I'm making one of "those" threads...I need someone to tell me if I have a chance.

GPA is median at a T20, big law 1L summer, journal, URM, ties to market.

The firm is my first choice and I submitted a few weeks ago - can anyone tell me if I've got a shot and how long it normally takes to hear back about a screener?

thanks for the help! :D

i think you have a decent shot to get some firm (not sure about this one specifically) bc of your biglaw 1L position

although i can't believe median at T20 w URM gets you biglaw for 1L summer

thanks!

Somewhatwayward - I got the job before grades even came out, I happened to be visiting the region, they were willing to interview me and I clicked well with my interviewer. I got very lucky!

Edited for clarity.
