I'm really interested in X because of your really strong practice area in Y (tie it to my summer job if I can). I really like your assignment system because I think it will make the work environment more collaborative, with less fighting for work/ your free market system because it let's you build relationships with the partners, and develop more quickly based on the work you do.
I have a fairly noticeable speech impediment, which may not be helping me.
