Around 25% at lower T14. 2L SA at a V10 w/ offer, changing markets and practice area but not necessarily interested in "trading up" according to vault ranking.


What was your Skadden screener like? Was it like 2L screeners?

Does anyone have any advice for 3L screeners generally?

It was very similar to a 2L screener. The only difference was that this time around I was asked why I didn't want to go back to my SA firm. That question was asked multiple times in different ways.
Good luck!

2nd this. Not to hijack, but what do you say when the no-offer employer says they have no reservations about your skill whatsoever?

No 2L SA but really want biglaw, considering applying to Dechert/Cadwalader, but only because their recruiting probably isn't going so hot right now. Terrible idea?

Fwiw, I applied to Dechert with a SA offer and radio silence. But I do think you should apply. What's the worst that could happen? Radio silence/rejection?

Anyone hear anything from PW Real Estate? I have seen a few people post about PW Corporate and was wondering if Real Estate also had movement or if I can still hold onto that glimmer of hope despite the silence...

I screened and was rejected, but yes, they are. They sent everyone at 3L OCI who signed up for them a flyer that said they give 35k signing.

1. What's your area of interest?
2. Are you set on NY or are you considering other markets?
