Texas, top 10% - chances in NYC?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jun 21, 2013 8:23 pm

Ended up with a 3.92 at Texas after my first year. No LR, but I'm on a respectable secondary journal. What are my chances in NYC? Is it worth bidding on Cravath, Latham, and/or Skadden? Thanks in advance.

How do you know no LR, decisions haven't come out yet?

I couldn't participate in the write-on due to some unavoidable conflicts.

Got it. Well as long as you have a semi-articulate reason for wanting to be in NY, I think your chances are very good at all the NY firms going to UT's fair. Top 25% last year came back w/ lots of callbacks so you should be in an even better position.

Very good and yes. Had multiple friends in my recent year's class who were 3.8+. They interviewed and got jobs with the likes of Skadden, S&C, Latham, etc.
