Sull Crom is stretch but doable, Skadden is totally fine.
Wachtell and Cravath are probably a waste, but they won't laugh you out of the room. Same goes for Boies Schiller. Paul Weiss can be pretty competitive too. Quinn Emmanuel is pretty choosy based on grades so your chances are not that high.
Here is the thing: NYC will be pretty solid, you'll probably have more bids than you need. If a firm in NYC catches your eye, BID on it. Do not bid on a bunch of v50 firms with a 3.6 to be totally safe.
I don't know who these people are talking about Wachtell. Unless things have changed this year, Wachtell does not do OGI. As a mass mail, you'd probably need a minimum 3.8 to have a chance/callback. And either 3.8 PLUS solid finance experience or 3.9+ without finance experience to have a real shot of an offer.
Quinn is doable at 3.6 and it doesn't matter since they're not doing OGI so you just mass mail.
The bottom line is you are not going to get Wachtell coming from UVa.
This was my doing. I used Wachtell as the hyperbole.
For a 3.65 with NY ties, how is this bid list at the top (I want either NY/LA) but would prefer LA. Ties are film and friends. List in descending order. I really want LA, and figure I'll get lots of NY preselects. I'm worried about getting no offered if my bid list is really dumb, and LA does not love me for being an outsider.
Would love to do entertainment law in the film industry, also would love to do anything contract or water use/gas law related. Anything corporate is cool too.
