GULC EIW Bid List

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Jun 21, 2018 8:49 am

I'm really confused about how to order my bid list due to the mix of pre-select and lottery. I want to stay in DC and all the firms are for their DC office. 3.5X GPA and interested in two regulatory areas and litigation. I know the DC market is tough and I have begun mass mailing and have attended firm receptions every day but still haven't gotten a bite on screeners from those.

Not the advice you want, but the advice you need: throw in some NYC firms. I had 3.8X going into OCI, and still threw in some NYC. DC can be fickle and it's good to have backups. I know people in your GPA range who struck out on DC.

That said, your list seems reasonable. I would bid Akin and Hollingsworth higher. K&E is a long shot.

Thanks you're probably right. Mind if I PM you a followup question?

I can't seem to find the PM button anymore but these aren't confidential questions so I'll just ask them here and anyone can answer. I haven't done as much research into NY firms so I'm not sure which ones I should add. Also you said K&E is a long shot so I could remove that and I could also remove some firms that I'm not too interested in but thought that I might get preselected for but how high do I have to rank NY firms to realistically get them from the lottery? I know that they are also bid on heavily.
