3.55 at M, Need some help finalizing my corporate bid list.

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jun 26, 2013 10:32 am

Some background:
URM, ties to LA and NY, not many to norcal. Areas of interest (in order of preference):
VC / Emerging Companies Corporate > M&A/ Corporate Finance/Capital Markets > PE, Financial Institutions.
Good 1L position and prior experience before entering law school.

My ideal would be practicing VC / EC corporate work in LA, but I know the field is just really starting to take off, and I would enjoy living in SV/SF.
My priorities in order: Quality / Consistent Work in my top fields of interest > Location (LA preferred, but I have lived in NY and LA) > Maximizing bids. I tried to order my list to reflect this, hence why I have so few CA bids despite my preferences for there (really only trying to go back if I can do what I want or be at a firm like Gibson/Latham in LA) . I based some of my ordering of NY firms based on old data provided by school. Is this about right? Too ambitious? I think a 3.55 should be around top 20-25%, so assume 25% to be safe.

All firms are NY unless otherwise noted.
1. Cooley - SV
2. Fenwick - SV
3. WSGR - SV
4. Sidley
5. MoFo - LA(?) (still debating this one)
6. K&E
7. Paul Weiss
8. Clifford Chance
9. Linklaters
10. Cahill
11. Gunderson - SV
12. Weil
13. Ropes & Gray
14. STB
15. Fried Frank
16. Cravath
17. Allen & Overy
18. Cleary
19. OMM - LA
20. Gibson - LA
21. Latham - LA
22. Debevoise
23. Skadden
24. Kramer Levin
25. Wilkie Farr
26. S&C
27. White & Case
28. Milbank
29. DPW
30. Goodwin Procter - SV/NY (undecided).

Pretty sure Fenwick isn't coming to OCI.

Wow, thanks for pointing that out. Hoping to land them and some others at a diversity fair, but I definitely missed that. Thanks for pointing that out. Guess that frees up a spot.

Is Fenwick the one that that anon in the Michigan thread was talking about pulling out of OCI? I thought they were coming as well.
