WUSTL EIW + Off campus Programs 2015

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Jun 21, 2015 10:26 am

Bids and and handles.

Where did everyone bid? Where are people getting interviews?

SEMW/MCGC are out. Some of New England is out. No idea on Texas. Half of EIW is out.

I've enjoyed the club so far, I really have. However, I am dismayed at my inability to meet pretty firms. I know these firms would like me if they did meet me. But thanks to your large national draw of 39 firms, there is not alot of these beauties at the ball. I don't mind the 17 Missouri farm-firms, but yall seem to be looking for a country lawyer.

On your preslect system, my dad bod is not impressing versus team #nodaysoff. I think your preselect system is objectifying and we should play some lottery icebreakers instead. Maybe I would have a chance to dance with a nice firm at least for a bit and hopefully my personality would shine through. Unfortunately however, I'm relegated to picking my nose in the corner with the other 150 people in my class.

Sometimes I wonder if I should have paid the cover to go to one of the more exclusive dance halls such as Georgetown or Michigan when I realized I would never be able to even meet the talent at WUSTL. While I thought your club was a bargain, with the reduced cover for VIPs, little did I know that everyone is a VIP at Club WUSTL.

Thankfully I met some firms on OkCupid and we now have some dates planned out throughout the fall. Hopefully one of those will turn out great! Maybe I will be able to have a summer fling with one of these dates. Who knows I guess I could also pay to go to your VIP-VIP section for a LLM but it seems there are even fewer firms up there.

Best, semi-disgruntled patron

P.S. I'm writing unemployed on my ABA report.

P.P.S. You should look at getting new bouncers.

I'm going to the New York Interview program+EIW+Chicago.

Top third with midwest ties, secondary journal. I'm probably not going to get more than five screener interviews through WashU.

Home market.... crossing my fingers.

I suspect if you mass mail correctly combined with the fact that I'm assuming you made deans list one of your two semesters, you will do well mass mailing.

Much better than top third with nothing. You just seem more appealing in mass mails with law review(and firms will assume your ranked higher than you are).

^ thanks for the optimism haha. i've actually been remarkably consistent and was outside top third/dean's list both semesters. but i do hope that law review looks good, especially since i clearly wrote on (as opposed to grading on, which i guess seems competitive, right?)

We will have to compare afterwards, I have slightly better stats but no journal.

I presume your just leaving gpa without any notator where top third is on your mass mail?

yep, and hoping that it looks better than it actually is (thx grade inflation). unrealistic since i'm sure they're aware to some degree what our curve looks like even without my noting an actual rank, but i'll hope for it anyway

I'd like to think that that GPA inflation helps with mass-mailing firms that aren't coming to OCI. It at least doesn't hurt.

Does anyone know exactly how bidding works? Is the Wash U system entirely preselect or does the bid rank work as some kind of lottery?

Entirely pre-select+ no meaningful cap. So effectively one can bid on somewhere around 100-150 firms at our OCI+ off campus programs.

Does WUSTL let us double dip? Can any transfers from last year speak to this? #massexodus

I mean if you think about it, WUSTL isn't letting you double dip. They just don't know about it. If you asked CSO they would tell you no.

The real question is what are you going to tell firms if you double dip?

Bid Limits for Early Interview Week
Just a reminder for Early Interview Week on-campus interviews, you are limited to a maximum of 50 employer bids (this limit only applies to Early Interview Week employers and Resume Collects/Direct Sends do not count towards your bid limits). This limitation has been set to ensure that the maximum possible number of students get meaningful interview opportunities. If you encounter difficulty with limiting your bids, please speak with a CSO Counselor for guidance. Submitting a resume for an employer in whom you have no real interest may deprive someone sincerely interested in the employer the opportunity to interview. We ask candidates with strong credentials to be especially considerate of this matter. Please work with a CSO Counselor to determine the best bidding strategy for you. CSO advisors are available to speak to you in person or over the phone, please utilize them!

That's crap. Bid everywhere you can imagine yourself working. Unless you're in the tip top of the class, you need to do everything possible to maximize your chance of getting a job. And that includes interviewing anywhere you can.

^ I mean isn't that effectively what their saying. If you can't imagine yourself working at Lathrop in Gage and thus have no real interest in them, don't bid them.

To clarify, for EIW (and I guess for all our programs) it doesn't really matter which number bid we place on a firm, since there's no lottery component to it? And firms don't see what number bid you put them at?

How many people actually transferred up? I know at least 7 that transferred (many of them very highly ranked).

Well I mean none of us have transferred yet... we're in the middle of transfer admissions at the moment. I know of at least 5 that have committed/chosen schools though. But this won't be settled for another few weeks as most of the T14s haven't released any decisions.
