You cannot afford, with grades like that and a transactional interest, to miss ANY V10 NYC interview, and you have no basis for assuming that 3-6 points above last years FFB is a safe spot, especially since everyone had the FFBs and most folks are modifying their bidding accordingly.
The credited response is to bid the V10 and places like Wilkie as high as possible. The value of maximizing total interviews, especially before you have the opportunity to add or resume drop day-of, is minimal.
Looked at my list based on this advice:
5. Davis Polk
6. Simpson Thatcher
3 and 9 cannot be bid any higher as they are my #1 and #2.
1, 2, 4, 6 seem to be at their safe spots at least given last two years of data (FFB did not fluctuate much)
5 (4 spots above FFB), 7 (3 spots above), 8 (2 spots above), and 10 (2 spots above) I guess could be moved.
I agree that I should probably move Latham up, but I think 5 and 7 are at pretty safe spots given the data, and 8 (Weil) cannot be moved unless I drop Gibson, Debevoise, or W&C, which I don't think is a no-brainer.
Would love to know how you would structure my bidlist.
