I'm at a school in the northeast so the interview/offer process mostly happened while I was back in Dallas over the break-- some firms are still waiting on grades though

Does anybody else have feedback on DC firms? Still waiting to hear back.

Anyone think I should submit now with two grades to try and get my foot in the door before classes fill up, and then update when the third grade drops?

Also...to the places I applied to pre-grades that haven't replied, should I follow up with grades in a similar fashion?

Thank you wise and venerable souls.

Edit: forgot to go anon but no one on TLS has any idea who I am in real life so it's all good


wow! Congrats on the incredible grades! I remember you well from the application cycle, although I don't know you IRL. I suppose your choice worked out well :)

Yeah--as an ex-Cravather, I chuckled at this. A long time ago, they had a Hong Kong office, but...just London and the Death Star nowadays :)

Haven't gotten grades yet, but they did ask for my undergrad transcript in the meantime.

Any general wisdom on how to send grade updates? Send it to the recruiting manager or hiring partner? Include a quick note affirming interest? etc.

I know someone who was offered the day after the callback before we got grades back.

Hey guys... MVP 1L that ended up with a 3.85+ gpa with all of my grades back. I didn't think 1L SA was realistically on the table, but I think my grades may open it up. Non-diverse, no apps in. Too late or should I grind this week to get some resumes out? Also, do I put my GPA on my resume or just attach my transcript? Thanks.

Anyone hear back from Mofo LA yet?

Also just realized I made a very minute typo in my cover letter. Must be why I'm getting nowhere :(

Oddly enough, the 15 or so cover letters with minute typos that I sent out have yielded me the most screeners/callbacks. I assume its not the end of the world if they like the rest of your application. Keep your head up!

I had typos in some cover letters, and a couple resulted in interviews. The others are resulted in "we don't hire 1Ls, but please get back with us next year" dings. Don't sweat it.

Taft Chi and Indy interview in 2-3 weeks. Sent my grades as a followup to JonesDay Chi and said they would get back to me in a few weeks - so no ding yet.

WilmerHale NY Ding, Sidley Chi Ding.
