Does Shearman cold offer?

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Sep 04, 2016 8:05 pm

Deciding between firms and am leaning towards Shearman. They seem to have a 100% offer rate, but what about cold-offers? Are there firms that have a reputation for cold offering?

Sorry, I only just learned about this practice and am a bit freaked out by it.

If not all, the vast vast majority of firms are willing to cold offer if they need to.

I wouldn't be concerned about it even if you hear that the firm has made cold offers in the past.

Was a SA there this past summer. Current associates said they never heard of it happening and I didn't hear of anyone not getting a full blown offer this summer.

S&S SA here, didn't hear of anyone getting cold offered this summer and the associates claimed cold offers have happened in the past but didn't personally know of any. Most firms do cold offer people, but it seem to be rare.
