Bidding Strategy for Transfers

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jun 24, 2015 2:04 pm

Transferring to a T-20. Top 20% at old TT URM. From what I've seen on TLS, transfers have a pretty tough time at OCIs and mass mailing is key. Is NYC actually a less selective market for SAs than DC?

Yes, but it's more that NYC has more jobs.

Do I even have a shot at Biglaw in NYC with the whole transfer stigma, especially coming from a Mid TT at only 20%

I mean probably not, but you also don't have a good shot a biglaw in any market with those stats and going to a T20. That doesn't mean you shouldn't try though, what else are you going to do?
