San Francisco is in Northern California not SoCal. If you made that mistake in an interview you might get dinged. Your teens look risky and idk how many of those firms you'll get. I would remove Goodwin Boston since you're already bidding a different office (even if it's allowed). Winston seems high but I haven't seem the GPA data recently and it looks like you might be on the GPA border for some of the V10 NY firms.
Thanks! The SoCal thing is totally my fault.... Thank you for pointing this out! So by GPA border, are you referring to the median of callbacks of those firms? If so, yeah, My GPA is a little lower than the median of several V10 NY firms (I believe DPW, Cravath, Skadden hv mediansof around 3.72~3.74, and S&C's is even higher). Would it be too risky to bid on too many of those V10 firms? Cuz I would definitely prefer SF/PA/Menlo Park to NY if I cannot get a V10.
