Debevoise, White & Case, or Fried Frank? (NY)

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Aug 17, 2018 4:47 pm

Trying to pick between these three. I’m interested in all of them, but now trying to get a better sense of the quality of life, opportunities for growth, and financial stability.

Any thoughts or anyone making a similar decision?

Sorry to hijack your thread for a second here, but do you mind sharing when you had your W&C CB and when you heard back?

Closer call if W&C vs. Fried Frank, but Deb's the obvious answer in the three-way comp here.

How would you distinguish between white and case and Fried Frank?

On the one hand, this makes sense. On the other hand, if OP is more internationally-mindned, I think W&C becomes a clear choice. We need more info.

The answer doesn’t change. Deb is significantly better and it has plenty of international reach.

It is. OP just wants to brag about getting a Debevoise offer.

White & Case and Fried Frank are known to hire only bottom-of-the-barrel students yet OP miraculously snagged a firm well beyond his reach.
