This one was Ropes, since someone asked about Ropes specifically. Except it was a Columbia jacket and not fleece per se. But I wouldn't get your hopes up about the jacket yet... I hear they change up the present every year.

Any evidence that Skadden's post-acceptance jackets have returned for another year? Last year, people were apparently asked for clothing sizes.

If you can readily identify a person who is in charge of sending this to you then I probably would, but for most big firms it's going to just be to recruiting in general so I wouldn't.

Is this typically common for NY firms only? Anyone ever heard of post acceptance gifts in Texas?

Last year it was some kind of duffel bag for men and tote bag for women, around the holidays. Expect to also pick up more swag during Winter Weekend.

I hope it's not a straight-up sweatshirt and more like a half-zipper. Yes, I know that sounds pretentious.

While we're asking...

Has Cravath traditionally done anything? I can't believe I accepted without getting this crucial question answered first

I won't. I imagine it could be perceived negatively depending on school and employment %

Yeah. My firm gave out nice wearable shit in addition to other shit and I still shuddered when I saw other people wearing their firm's swag to school. The guy/girl sitting next to you was next in line at the OCI screener and got rejected.

Wait until you get to your firm's market and then wear it on your jogs/at firm events (and at no other time ever). Jesus.
