Because I have several years worth of hiring data from several top schools
At a ~random top school~ I'm looking at from a ~random year,~ Skadden's average GPA was ~3.5 while S&C, Cravath, DPW and Wachtell were all at least 3.65.
It's not a huge difference, but it's a difference. I'm sure it varies from school to school and year to year, but I've seen enough numbers to stand by the fact that Skadden NYC isn't as selective as the other V5ish firms it often competes with for students.
Really? I go to CCN so probably it's a little different, but I don't think the average GPA for those places is that high. If I had to guess it'd be more like 3.55.
EDIT: Wachtell is probably that high. I don't think DPW and Cravath are.
