This is highly unlikely. I know at least 1 LLM that got a position at a foreign office of a V50 firm, but Cleary Gottleib is pretty much beyond our pay grade in all aspects. I don't know where the others are working, though. A lot of LLMs seem to transfer into the full-time JD program actually.
I spoke to an alumni at Cleary on the phone when I was considering transfering. It's not easy but it's possible if you're top 10% or higher..maybe top 15% as well? I know there's a 2L going to Cravath who's outside top 10%
My class had people going to Milbank, SullCrom, Cravath, Skadden, Proskauer, Baker McKenzie, and two at Kirkland Ellis.
But I don't think I've ever heard of Cleary hiring from WUSTL.
