Usually, recruiting will send a "Welcome to the Summer Class!" email once they've finalized the summer class that contains administrative tasks like background checks, conflicts check, and information about the summer class.

Kirkland Chicago has a class of 58. Don't want to post the entire school breakdown since there are lot of them (most schools only have one or two people), but top three were (1) Northwestern - 15 (2) Michigan - 14 (3) Chicago - 10. A handful from Harvard and Yale. Most of the local schools are sending at least one person. There is also some representation from Big 10 law schools and other t14 schools.

People seem to underestimate how large the Texas market is, especially Houston. Plus, Kirkland is really thriving there. I think V&E had about 60 SAs in Houston last summer? They'll probably have more in the summer ahead.

V&E had 36 2Ls in the Houston office last summer and the office size is close to twice as large as K&E Houston. The math does not work in explaining how they are going to make a 48 person class work.

Can you imagine what’s going to happen to those huge Houston classes if oil keeps tanking? Maybe they all switch to bk I guess...

Chicago is not that big of a market really. Kirkland Chicago always has the biggest class size. Usually Kirkland has 55-60 and Sidley usually has 40-45. Then firms like Winston, Jenner, McDermott, and Jones Day will have 20-25. And then there is Mayer Brown, Katten, Latham, Skadden who usually have around 15. Most firms in the market only take 5-10 summers.
