1. Weil Gotshal
2. Simpson Thacher
3. Paul Weiss
4. Kirkland -- Chicago
5. Proskauer Rose
7. Milbank Tweed
8. Davis Polk
9. Skadden -- NYC
Any thoughts on this list much appreciated, also not sure about the bid NYC/mass-mail Chicago strategy, OCS seemed to think it was an okay strategy, but that's OCS...
Weil was available at 18 last year FWIW.
If you want to stay in Chicago, bid more Chicago in your top 10.
Yup. I'd flip your thinking and mass mail NYC, I think a 3.7 would get you a lot of looks there, while the same might not be true in Chicago.
