don't love your list, as it includes some firms who don't have great corporate practices (Hogan NY, Greenburg NY, K&L Gates NY, Kasowitz)
As someone from the outside looking in, why does Proskauer have a FFB of 1? Its a fine firm but its not as big of a corporate player as places like Milbank, W&C, Sherman, Wilkie etc.
Are there other firms you suggest? As I said, I mostly picked firms based on the number of extended offers to give myself the best chance. I am not set on practice group or even corporate v. Litigation yet, so at this point I just want to get some offers and then decide based on the firms available to me.

Also, Davis Polk's FFB was not 26.
Yeah may have messed up Davis Polk but that can be replaced as its a reach anyways. In regards to FFB, most of my first 20 bids are about 3 spots higher than last years FFB. There isn't that much wiggle room unless I discard one of the firms at the top and move everything else up one. Any suggestions?
