Better to use top bids for NJ / CT firms and then bid on NYC? I'd rather work in NYC but I'd be content (and feel like I have a stronger case) for NJ
Not really familiar with NJ/CT firms or which ones come to OGI, but what you said probably makes sense (maybe put 1-2 NYC firms in your top 10). If there aren't many NJ/CT firms coming to OGI though, and not many people bidding on NJ/CT firms, you might have better chance at pre-select (and could have them lower on the list). Either way, I'd mass-mail firms that aren't coming.
Yeah, it's perhaps a bit riskier, but probably the best bet to maximize interviews, if you were able to move the NJ/CT firms mostly out of the top 10. At median, you probably won't get getting a ton of preselects for NY firms, so if you want interviews there, they'd come via the lottery.
That being said, I don't know how strong your ties are and how well they come across on your 1 page resume. Hopefully those NJ/CT firms ask for cover letters, because it'd be easier to show. Maybe ask career services, or maybe somebody else here has a trick for showing ties via the resume.
Raised in NJ. All WE in NJ. NJ College. Resume screams NJ. There are 3 NJ Firms coming. I plan to Mass Mail the others.
