People have different reactions to Susman. My buddy and I had a great time with all the attorneys (we both accepted our summer offers), but a few of our friends seemed pretty turned off by them. I didn't really see it, but I guess it depends on the person. All that being said, make up your own mind about em.
Do you have any idea what their grade cut off is? Top 15% at MVP good enough? Or do I need to kill it and grade onto law review? Is it easier to get into their Houston office than Dallas or LA, which are much smaller.
You need to: (1) get a federal clerkship (they only hire former clerks); and (2) have a stellar resume. You need to kill it.
This is incorrect. They require all new attorneys to have clerked. That's not the same thing as hiring only clerks. They hire for their summer program through OCI and then make offers in early september. The offers are contingent on landing a clerkship.
Obviously, they also hire people that never summered at the firm but are coming out of clerkships.
