Arnold & Porter, Sidley Austin or Cadwalader? (all dc)

Help me decide! I am struggling with pick one, and wondering how much I should pay attention to rankings, if at all.

Thanks

Sorry, I absolutely can't help with this (although I'd pick A&P just 'cause I liked them) but I was wondering how soon after your A&P CB you got the offer?

Least helpful response ever, I'm sorry!!

I summered at a major DC firm (not one of these 3). I would vote for Sidley by a longshot, followed by A&P. WIth offers from both Sidley and A&P, I would never go to Cadwalader.

Interviewed at both A&P and Sidley, and I would vote A&P by somewhat of a longshot, followed by Sidley, with Cadwalader not anywhere remotely near the picture. Granted, you've given no indication what you want to practice or what your interests might be, so my advice is even less helpful than normal from an anonymous person on a message board.

If you don't mind, when did you hear back from A&P (if you have) and if it was a ding, was it via email or snail mail? Would really appreciate it!!

Cadwalader DC has a very different culture from the New York office (in a good way). But only go there if you're interested in Antitrust, White Collar, or Energy.
