I'm guessing yes, but can't say for sure. They offered an interview but I declined without getting to the stage where they mentioned any specific groups.

Do you approach 3L screeners/CBs any differently than you did as a 2L gunning for an SA position?

I am a rising 3L with an offer from the v50 firm that I summered at but the offer is not in the practice group I am interested in so I lined up some screeners/CBs with other firms to see if I can land anything. What kind of questions do you ask interviewers as a 3L interviewing for an associate position as opposed to a 2L interviewing for an SA position? Also, do firms ask the same type of questions to 3Ls (i.e. a lot of more 'casual' talk about interests outside of law, etc.)?

Thanks.

I don't know about the other questions, but I can answer this one. Between 2L and 3L interviews, interviewers have asked me similar questions (except for certain questions that apply only to my weird situation). I think firms expect 3Ls (1) to be more "polished" and (2) to intelligently articulate a specific practice interest.

As an international student who didn't work at a firm and needs work visa sponsorship, I just want to give up after having had a few 3L screeners. Good grades at a T10, but feel like those aren't helping at all.

I did that awhile ago when I mass mailed, and just got an auto reply to use the firm's online application system. You should just apply directly on Weil's website under the Careers section.

Hmm, are you talking about the recruit@weil.com email address? I meant the person listed as Associate Director, Legal Recruiting. Their email is easily found on the firm's website.

I'm always wary of online applications because there's a pretty good chance your materials will never be viewed by an actual human being. (As opposed to mass mailing. Ha? :x )

I just got a rejection from one of the two firms I interviewed with at OCI. I thought it went really well.

One part rejection, four parts silence, zero parts positive on the mass-mailing front.

Jesus take the wheel.

I just got a callback from Davis Polk NY. But I feel like it can't be correct. At a t25, top 33%. I don't know what's going on, but I pray this isn't a sick joke.

Stuff like this can happen with 3L hiring. Firms realize they are going to need 'x' number of associates to join their a certain group (usually corporate) in addition to those from the summer class. However, most biglaw-bound t14 students are sticking with their SA firm.

Go out there and kill it. Good luck!

lol me too with similar stats. but i have some other honors/similar things that i guess gave me some pull, assuming that's the same with you.

although in previous threads, davis polk seems to not be too grade selective so im not shocked (i.e. a soft 3.5 floor apparently)

I summered elsewhere and have an economics degree, but I'm pretty unremarkable....
