Bidlist Advice

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jul 12, 2013 5:27 pm

Hey guys. I'm Top 25% at Berkeley. I'm interested in commercial litigation/possibly corporate work . I want to be in the Bay Area, but am open to LA. I've tried to research as much about firms as possible, but with 60 bids it can be a bit of a challenge. This is what I have for a bidlist thus far. Berkeley is 100% lottery based. If you notice a large firm missing (MoFo, Latham, Gibson) it's because I'm interviewing with them at BADCF. Any advice is appreciated!
