Cravath does give an umbrella and a flimsy tote, but Kirkland's umbrella is better and I got it post-screener.

Mayer Brown gave out a portable USB power bank at the callback that I've found pretty useful so far.

I feel like they’re spreading the swag out in recent years, so that it’s not super fancy stuff just at offers, but mildly fancy stuff throughout the process.... I’ve gotten stuff from firm receptions and screeners that were just as good as the offer swag I’ve gotten/I’m seeing here (for reference, Weil gave milkbar truffles at screeners as well, and I’ve gotten swell bottles, portable chargers, outlet adapters, and headphones from receptions......and a heavy-duty portable battery from one offer, nothing from others).

Not that I’m complaining, mind you. The more spread out, the more swag potential. Just noticing a trend.

Not to me they didn't :x :x :x


They no longer mail bonsais as of a year or two ago. They mail succulents these days.

Do you think this is a sign of S&C having financial issues? That's the only reason I can think of as to why they'd stop with the bonsais.

I heard through the grapevine that S&C is is struggling to make rent on its New York office.

First they came for the bonsais....

Obviously a joke, but just to be super clear to the rising 2Ls on the board: S&C owns its NY HQ (and rents out part of the building to other tenants, including the ACLU).

Have not heard any rumors of financial issues. Partnership did not hesitate to match Milbank/Simpson/Cravath this summer.

Is that only if you accept? :’(


Not sure. I accepted pretty shortly after the offer was extended (next business day) so it's possible it's an acceptance gift.
