I would add Pillsbury and Hogan Lovells to that list. Neither are big players on the West Coast, but I had similar experiences with them to the above poster's experiences with Nixon and WSGR.

Maybe. That's the problem--it's impossible to generalize b/c things can get so firm specific. FWIW, my instincts say it would not help unless the firm is very a top-down firm (like Boies).
Also Fenwick did do outreach through resume requests, unfortunately they moved so late that I had already accepted somewhere else (and I waited quite a long time before accepting). I was pretty interested in them, so that was a bit of a bummer--hopefully they will move more quickly this time around.
Anonymous User wrote:Yeah, we seem to only have 4 real LA powerhouses coming - Latham has a big enough SA presence to be a powerhouse. I did bid on every LA office. I sacrificed some smaller NY firms, but hopefully I'll still come away with 23 interviews and will be unawkward enough to pull 1 of them. However, if LA is really just a pipe dream for all these other places and they have their mind made up to 99% not hire UVa, I do regret not tossing in some big DC classes or some larger firms around NYC like NJ/PHI. I don't really have a strong geographic preference if it's not LA - just want a jerb.

Creased okay? Have a pair of ~80-100 dollar dress shoes I have only worn about 10x but they're 2.5 years old, and got creased after walking a mile in them. Would some polish be okay? I figure at this point if I were getting a new pair, it'd be worth it to just go all out and get a nice pair of AE to last me for a decade. However, the black cap toe dress shoe is something you really only wear for law related stuff - even a wedding, formal event permits more style - so I wouldn't wear them again till summer formal events.
I'm used to changing gym shoes after every 300 miles, and casual/fancier shoes after every 150 so after maybe 20 miles seems like such a waste.

BADCF? OTIP? What are those things? Plenty of Cali people get their 2L gigs through OGI, the rest it seems more like networking and mass-mailing.
