Bidding as a transfer

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jul 26, 2013 11:52 am

I am transferring in to a T6 school from a t50 school and am very happy to find many new firms available for interviews at the OCI of the school to which I'm transferring. I don't know how my grades which would put me near the top of the class at my previous school, a couple book awards, and Law Review invite (from old school) will be compared to the achievements of my peers at the new school, and consequently, I'm having a rough time figuring out how to bid. I do not have much significant work experience, and while I have improved my interviewing skills, I am not completely confident in them.

Any general tips for bidding for one in my situation who wishes to bid responsibly while taking some shots at "reach" firms? Thanks in advance.

If they're firms that have interviewed top students (with similar profiles to you) from 1L school (obviously not through OCI -- in response to mass mails, resume collects, etc.), then you're probably worth a look to them.
