Is Paul, Weiss in DC doing pre-OCI? I applied to their NY office but mentioned in my letter that I was interested in the DC office as well. In real life, I would really prefer the DC office and my school's career services said to do what I did (apply to NY but mention an interest in DC).

Not sure, but I applied online to the DC office a week or two ago and got a rejection email today.

I feel most firms will not start moving until July 9 given the holiday schedule.

Congrats! That's a wonderful outcome. Makes OCI much better assuming you still wanna do it.

Mind sharing stats so we could get some idea of how selective hiring is at this point?

Thanks! My bid list is due less than 2 weeks after my interview, unfortunately. If I got a PW offer I think I would bid at most 5-6 firms. How does this offer change the rest of your summer?

1-2 V10 firms I'll still interview with, and then the litigation specialists. But even if those all go terribly this is obviously a great outcome! :D

Not original anon, but also know of STB offers for lower T-14. Ranges from below median to top 25%, all networked pretty hard.

Can only speak for myself but lower T-14, not sure where in the class but I'd say top ~20%, interview to offer was about 2 days

Re: Bay Area I can confirm some movement but it seems to be just starting. I’ve gotten 3 CB requests (V20) from mass mailing so far. Don’t want to provide more detail since it’s a relatively small market.
