I get that the popular Chicago firms should be top 5, but what about NYC? Bay Area? Secondary markets? How low can I bid those firms? I currently don't plan to bid Chicago.
Thanks in advance!
I would construct a bid list based on your personal preference for working at the firms combined with your likelihood of getting a callback. Once you've got your ideal list, you can post it anonymously on TLS and people will help you modify it to maximize your # of screeners.
Generally, you should get a lot of screening interviews if you're not bidding Chicago. I think lots of SF went more quickly than NYC last year because they tended to have fewer interview slots, but i didn't bid the full range of firms in those two markets.
