UVA- Top 20%- OGI Strategy

Postby clandestinestudent7 » Sat Jun 16, 2012 2:52 pm

Rising 2L at UVA with a 3.52 (approximately top 20%) GPA. Won best brief or best memo award and have some relevant (but limited in duration) work experience. I interview very well.

The school released a somewhat unhelpful document which organized average callback GPA data into three groups: above 3.5, between 3.4 and 3.5, and below 3.4. The document also indicates the 35 firms which have the highest average callback GPAs. The document does not list the actual average callback GPA for any firm.

Since I'm only just above the 3.5 mark, should I bid mostly in the 3.4 to 3.5 range with a few reach firms in the 3.5 and above group and a few safety firms in the below 3.4 range?

You will have to provide more information. Ties to cities, where you would like to end up, etc.
