NYU Transfer EIW/OCI Bidding Advice

Postby Flocka » Tue Aug 02, 2016 8:09 pm

I am currently compiling my bid list for EIW, and am looking for some advice on what level of firms I should be bidding. I went to a T1 (ranked 30-40) prior to coming to NYU, ranked in the top 15%, president of a student org at old school, and have not yet begun the NYU journal competition (it doesn't begin till after EIW). Bidding is 100% lottery based, but I dont want to end up interviewing for firms where I don't even have a shot.

I have heard that I am competitive for the same firms as I would have been if I did not transfer, more or less, but I am having trouble grappling with that concept because the school I transferred from tends to do pretty well in its region. Does this mean I should be looking to apply for schools in that region or am I competitive for some of the Big Law jobs in NY? I've contacted the career services office but to no avail.

Thank you all so much for the help!
