Alston & Bird (NY)

Pretty small office, but I'm wondering what people here know about it. I interviewed there and really liked everyone I met.

Fairly recently, within the past couple of weeks.

I've seen the Fortune rankings, but honestly I'm wondering how reflective that is of the NY office, and not just the home base Atlanta office.

What other firms are you considering? If you have time before the offer expires, maybe make a second visit? Although if you feel the need to come on here to ask chances are you're pulling towards somewhere else?..

To OP, how long do you have to decide? & what practice areas are you looking to go into?

Roughly a week.

Did you receive a similar call between your callback and offer?
