Ive heard from insiders that corp while stronger now, is a bad experience at Paul Weiss. Basing advice on that.

OP here.

Received an offer from Skadden, called A&P and Milbank to inform them I will not be joining them this summer, still deliberating between Proskauer and Skadden (leaning heavily towards Skadden).

Just received a callback interview at Kirkland. Should I do the Kirkland callback or decline it and accept the Skadden offer?

Thanks again.

definitely do the callback. skadden and kirkland are ranked too closely to make assumptions based on rank.
