I wonder if Cravath and SullCrom are a little too aggressive, but maybe I'm wrong. I think you might be better served by cutting down the list some and having some firms with more forgiving bid percentages in there.

I'm with Ted, although I think it's fine to leave at least Cravath on there since they can be bid so low. SullCrom is a little trickier because you have to bid them relatively high but the GPA might be a tad light for those guys.
Where I really agree is that you should put more firms on the list that you'll definitely get. That bidlist has disaster written all over it because I could see you just missing several of those firms in the middle. I'd take out Allen and Overy unless you have some real attachment to them and move everyone else up. Also think about moving SullCrom down (you could still get them at 20+, especially with our smaller class size) and move up the oversubscribed firms behind it.
