Things I'm interested in would be what firms are there, what kind of grades do you need to land something (not necessarily at the elite firms), and how we do overall in NY (I know we don't place a high percentage, but is that self-selection or inability). I've heard of at least a handful of kids going to V10/15 firms, but I'm curious what the chances are of landing something for someone with good but not great grades.
, need to be top 20% to get any interviews through the NY interview program, same with DC (at least for firms). The better your grades, the more interviews you'll pick up. If you've got great grades, you'll clean up there.
In reality, unless you're in the top 15% (and closer to 10 than 15), I wouldn't expect much from the program. There was a decent crowd there from WUSTL this year, but a lot of people only had one or two interviews, and then a few had full days. It's a nice program, but you really need the grades. It's also a good thing to use for mass mailing NY firms...i.e. "I will be in town on XXX dates"
