These are DRAMATICALLY different cultures, so it's best to do your homework before making the decision. Talk with alums @ each firm about the culture, and try to figure out where you fit best. This should NOT be a close call- I have never met anyone who would fit at ropes AND kirkland.

He means the work environment. Kirkland is known to be very intense, sweatshop-like and Ropes is more about work/life balance and is one of the more "lifestyle" firms.

It seems to me like not everyone sends out dings after screeners.

Yeah. I've lurked other (higher ranked) schools and found that some of the firms I screened with at Loyola have already sent out callbacks, dings, and offers to their students all while I was waiting around and hoping they were just running slowly with their hiring process. I'm honestly a bit miffed they didn't bother to even send out a ding letter or email to me.

It is safe to assume the worst and hope for the best; although no reply by now most likely means a ding.

Finally......after talking to ppl there, I'm ditching Kirkland for Paul Hastings. Like someone above said, Kirkland has a high octane atmosphere, something I can hack for a year or so, but don't want to have that kind of lifestyle, despite a bit more $$$.
Good luck to you guys on the Kirkland waiting list.

Kirkland pays more than PH?

I summered in the IP section of PH this year.
