If you are looking for patent work why would it be awkward?

If you aren't, lol hell yea it will be. Why'd you bid them?

IP is an option. I think I may have picked them up during the open signup period? Not sure. I haven't heard of like 75% of the firms before I look them up, so I was really surprised to discover it's apparently(??) just two dudes. But their website has a summer associate program page, with photos of like 10 people at a restaurant.

Anyway, it's Beem. I'm operating from total ignorance here, but maybe you've heard of them? Are they really just 2 guys or is the website misleading?

Looks like two guys to me too, but they look like they are trying to grow. I wouldn't take it unless you can't find something else, but go into the interview trying to get an offer. Hell, maybe they'll let you do work during the school year instead. That would be good experience. Don't mention that until after an offer though.

Any updates from Mayer Brown Chicago? I heard some people got callbacks, but I would like to know if people also got dings (esp. those who interviewed with interviewers B & T). I have not heard a word from them, and am curious to know... Thank you.

Did everyone who interviewed with Paul Hastings get an e-mail titled "Paul Hastings Human Resources - Voluntary Self-Identification Survey (please respond)" ?
