Oh, please don't quote the personal info above the list b/c it's probably easy to figure out who I am based on the gpa trend

Based on what OCS told a friend, I think you're pretty much right at median. But should still be conservative

Looks good overall. Talk to OCS about your bid order.

Thing is I've heard all sorts of things, and it probably matters more what employers think the avg is. But there really should really be a big dif between 3.3 and 3.2, because either employers want good grades or they don't care as much.

cool. I'm waiting for OCS review. I revised a little before sending it to them, basically removed a few firms hiring ~5 SA's and moving up some of the firms with bigger classes. I'll post again when I hear from them.

Thanks for your help

I'm medianish at Penn and my bidlist looks similar to yours. Not the most helpful advice, but hopefully reassuring.

glad to hear. How many bids do you guys get? I'm assuming employers generally have similar numbers of interviewers there

60 bids, but I'm not planning on getting anything I have ranked after ~25 (though I certainly won't complain if I do, and I still paid attention to that part of my bidlist). Looks like proportionally, most firms have a pretty similar number of slots. Class size here is 244 IIRC. We have 40 slots for Sidley, 60 for Proskauer, 40 for Skadden, and 60 for Shearman, just to give you an idea.

Good luck with OCI, btw!

-OP here-

Our career services is a little cagey on what order to bid firms in, for some reason, so any help on that front would be awesome.

Prob bc if they tell us all the same thing, then the advice ceases to be useful.

A few quick thoughts, in general order of appearance:

Assuming you're not a URM, I suspect you may be wasting your time with Kirkland, Skadden, Latham, Gibson, Cleary, Simpson, Davis Polk, Mayer Brown Chicago and Sidley Chicago, all of which I believe are pretty grade conscious. Not as positive re: Kirkland and Skadden of them.

I'd try to find out whether Sidley lets you interview w/2 offices, that does always seem odd to me. Might go Mayer Brown NY if you don't have Chicago ties

I'd probably throw Cooley on there too, maybe Akin and V&E NY?

good luck

Thanks for your help!

I'd heard that Kirkland, Skadden, Latham, and Gibson are good reaches for medianish people? That surprises me that you think Latham, particularly, is so selective. I have Cleary/Simpson/Davis at the bottom of my list because 1) they have all taken people at or below median (non-URMs without any special wow factor), and 2) It's not likely that you can get interviews from places with small interview pools at that low of a bid - but I may take one or two of them off. Would Jones Day or Ropes be a better "reach" given selectivity and large-ness of class size?

Thanks for the heads up on Mayer and Sidley Chicago. Sidley does allow you to bid multiple offices but we didn't get much info w/r/t selectivity from Chicago offices. I'll probably take at least Sidley, if not both off the list.

I have Akin on there and heard V&E was about as selective as Kirkland, Latham, Gibson etc but with a much smaller summer class.

Thoughts? Thanks again.

As somebody who was in your shoes recently, I will say that your second list is better than your first but still not conservative enough. You are below median. 1/4+ of the class will not get anything from OCI. You are right above that point statistically. Make sure you get the non-grade conscious firms into your top 10, and spend a little less time on reaches. While Skadden or Weil may be good reaches for "Median" people, there is a difference between a 3.3 gunning for a 3.4 firm and a 3.2 gunning. Especially if you are non-URM and probably more-so if you are male. Firms like Chadbourne or Kramer, which are both less grade conscious, should be in your top 20, if not top 15/10, if you are serious about interviewing there, because everyone believes they can just fallback on them (Newsflash, 200+ students are below median and everyone will put the large NY classes with no gpa requirements on their lists...). Voluntarily giving up that (small) chance to work at Skadden is tough man, but I'll just say that the firms I eventually got offers from were not in my top 15 until I was berated enough to get rid of the Skaddens or the Lathams. Don't be the unemployed dude in October kicking himself because he was over-ambitious.


That said, I just want to point out that "expanding or contracting" class sizes provides no info. I know several firms who took more than they intended for example, and plan on cutting down next years class to compensate, or even have explicitly told people from classes that they won't be able to make 100% offers. More importantly, I would focus on the makeup of the classes. Some of these firms with relatively large classes took very few NYU people and some took a ton (though I'm pretty sure this fell more on people accepting summer offers there than on whether NYU summer offers were extended).

Simpson, Davis Polk, Cleary, Latham, Gibson, Kirkland and Skadden should come off your list yesterday. These firms all have hard grade cutoffs that you are below. They literally will take one look at your transcript and zone out for the rest of the interview. You are seriously running the risk of not getting an offer by wasting bids like this. As another poster said, you don't want to be that idiot in October without a job because you got greedy. You are not a slam dunk at any firm on your list, so you better interview at as many places as possible that you actually have a chance with. A slight increase in prestige is not worth the significant risk you are taking of being unemployed. As a former NYU student, I know plenty of people with your grades who struck out at EIW. And I don't know anyone with your grades working at Simpson, Davis Polk, Cleary, Latham, Gibson, Kirkland or Skadden. Do not make a huge financial mistake.

why do you think career services told me that the only ones that are a bad idea are Simpson, Cleary, and Davis Polk? They seemed to think that the rest were a good idea... Not doubting you, just curious why they would say that while also saying that their recommendations tend to be a bit on the conservative side?

Couldn't tell you why, but they aren't the ones saddled with debt. Maybe in the boom times some of those firms would be okay, but if I were you I would be focused on getting $160,000 salary, not miniscule bumps up in prestige that probably don't matter in the long run. Maybe if legal hiring picks up by August you will have a shot, but based on the hard gpa cutoffs at some of these firms last year, you will not even be considered. It doesn't matter if you have the best interview of your life.

I don't know their cutoff but there's no way that Kirkland is going below median
