How many firms? Breakdown of accounting vs law firms?
18 firms, half looking for exec comp/benefits or estate planning. only 2 are NY and non-EB/EC. 8 NY firms collecting resumes.
about 50% interview schedules are Big4
What is a competitive GPA to have a shot at biglaw from TIP, Johann? (with a top JD) 3.6 or higher?
3.6 and a top JD will be solid. You'll need to interview well (why tax, why llm, why city). But that's a great gpa from the llm program. It can be a bit of a crapshoot too (my friend with a 3.9 who interviewed poorly didn't get biglaw -though well paying boutique -while my other friend with a 2.9 and top regional law school (like unc) got a top NYC white shoe firm. Do practice interviews with career services. Shoot me a pm if you have any questions.
Also nothing shameful about working at big 4 international tax or SALT or ma.
Don't mean to hijack, but do you know how easy it is to land Big4 out of NYU tax llm? What kind of grades do you need? I've been admitted to the NYU program and debating whether to attend.
I have a top 14 JD, a few years biglaw (in a non-tax field) experience. I want to switch to accounting/tax accounting and less so the legal side of tax practice, which is why Big4 sounds better to me than biglaw.
