Woah they're being super selective...


That's bizarre. They're screening so many people with stats waaaay below that. I feel like every third person I know had a screener at DLA. Did you apply to the Chicago office? I heard Chicago is interviewing for offices nationwide.

In the end, DLA only pays 1k/wk for 1L summer... heard from a 1L summer last yr and confirmed by NALP.

Kind of a useless anon-jab - also since 1k/wk is more than most students get from the remaining internships after firms.

It's odd that they pay significantly less than other firms - does anyone know why?

I don't think this is true anymore. There program used to only be 2 weeks, but it's a full summer program now and I would assume it pays market now to.

Hence the word "used" to only be a 2 week program. This is the first year they have changed it.

Surprised how firm heavy this thread is for 1Ls. Accepted an unpaid gig at a state agency but hoping to get something better before all is said and done. Received dings from USAO E.D.VA. and Verizon post-automated interview submission.

Yeah, definitely recall hiring partner saying 1Ls and 2Ls get same compensation. But I've heard the 1k thing floating around too.

Congrats! Seems like the IP positions are getting filled quicker than regular positions. At least that's what I'm telling myself.

Yeah V&E has sent out offers.

I got offers from all the main Texas firms and some lit boutiques (top of class at HYS and strong Texas ties). Sent in apps on December 1, interviewed with some over Christmas break and some in late Jan. Offer timing ranged from before Christmas to last week. Can speak more specifically about particular firms if anyone wants.
