Munger Tolles- Top 15% CDN w/law Review?

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Jul 21, 2016 2:02 am

Cornell/Duke/Northwestern Student with Law Review

Should I bother drafting a cover letter and shooting over an application via email, or is it a lost cause? Ties to CA.

Chances are poor, but you never know. Why not apply?

Okay, that was the encouragement I needed. At least I can say I tried. Thanks =)

While I still think the OP should apply, it's worth noting that top 10% at UCLA/USC probably has a better chance with MTO than top 15% at CDN.

Out of curiosity, is the same true of a student with top 10% at CDN?

Is top 10% at UCLA/USC> top 10% at CDN because of strong regional ties, or are they viewed equally?

Viewed about the same.

Munger regularly hires top students from USC and UCLA, and it does not regularly hire from Cornell, Duke, or Northwestern. The post-clerkship market is different, but for law student hiring, the summer class is always as a baseline T6 + Berkeley and Penn, 1-2 from USC and UCLA each, and every so often a student from Loyola LA. There are sometimes students from other schools like Michigan and Howard as well but its not as consistent. That's why a top UCLA student might have a better shot than a top student at a lower T14, but again, this changes when you're coming off clerkships.

FYI, MTO is no longer participating in OCI at USC, and the current summer class had no USC but 3-4 UCLAs.

Please stop using arbitrary tiers. CDN is not a real thing.

Either say your school anonymously, or just say T-14.

And yea, Munger Tolles is not that selective. You'll be fine if you interview well.
