duval & stachenfeld recent grad interviews

They're interviewing for ~6 new early start opportunity associates. I had a callback this week, and think it went well, but haven't heard anything yet. Anyone else?

is this the firm that pays only 70k for opportunity associates and basically have them compete for spots for regular associate positions during the first two years?

sounds very brutal

OP here...

Marginally more brutal than the usual big law arrangement; way less brutal than still having no full-time job 7 months after graduation.

Hey OP;

How did you apply? Any idea if they might be accepting applications still? What was your application/interview process like?

I sent an email cover letter and resume. They said they'd keep me on file, and apparently they did, because a month-or-so ago they invited me in for an interview. Interview process was pretty standard biglaw. First round I met with associates; second round an associate, and a few partners.

I'm not sure if they're still accepting applications, but it can't hurt to try. Even if they don't have room at the moment, it was cool to see that, when they said they'd keep me on file, they really meant it.

Sure did. They didn't want me.
