I also can't find anything regarding how many summer's they typically take and what the offer rate is like. Any info would be appreciated.
Not even close to the same level.
Alright thanks. Any info/advice you can give?
Which boutique are you trying to work for?
Susman is tops. They're hiring more than in past years, but their standards are the same. Around a 4.0 at UT, top 5%-10% at most other schools. Probably top 25% at HYS (the HYS percentage is based on firm bios, everyone seems to have latin honors).
Gibbs and Bruns seems to only recruit from UT, so you may need to just send an app to em if you aren't a longhorn. Similar grade standards to Susman. Smaller than Susman, but they've had a few very good years recently. Great firm, great people.
Yetter and Beck Redden have lower standards than susman and gibbs. Still great firms though. Yetter seems to be stronger in appellate work. Yetter is also a newer firm and seems like it's on the rise.
McKool's practice is disproportionately focused on IP. They say they are building their commercial lit practice, though.
