The thing is I have a lot of connections to NY, but where I really want to be is in the Silicon Valley/San Francisco region. I love the area and visit friends there several times a year. I see myself living there long-term and love the tech/patent work going down there. Unfortunately, I have absolutely no connections there. Can anyone advise me on how to bid/spin my story? Would I be an idiot to go all-out bidding for SF?
Wait what are your grades? 6H/4P or 6H/1P/3DS? There aren't 35 SF/SV firms coming right? Aren't there only 15 or so? Just bid SF/SV then NY safeties and practice looking people in the eye and convincing them you don't wanna be in NY.
