But I also heard Nyc office is more sweatshops and isn't really different from other nyc firms.
About the no offers, I think they are pretty picky on personality and fit. I know someone explicitly told it was fit. And the several stories on tls this year all said they screwed up one small assignment. My guess is that is just a personality ding.
I'd guess after the dust settles we will see 85% offers, which is lower than average for them, and but their average is probably only 90 percent historically.
If you have an offer from a true historically 100 percent firm that should be a big plus in its favor. But, most nonv20 (and even several v20) are historically below 100 percent.
Sorry for the typos, poor can't figure out the typing on my I phone.
Thanks x 1000.
Why do you think they will give out historically low offer rates this year? Hasn't the economy been on an uptick, slow and sluggish, but doing better.
