I recognize that. I understand that these sorts of statistics will be impossible to find.
I also understand that Chicago students select a list of firms to interview w/ based in part on a estimation that their grades would not disqualify them from getting a job w/ those particular firms. Do Chicago students perceive that their grades are less disqualifying at Chicago firms of the same size and prestige as NY firms?
What is this I don't even..
OCS gives us a list that shows the range of GPAs for students given callbacks from that firm in the last few years. I guess that is what you are referring to. The range is generally pretty broad, and we are explicitly told that you shouldn't count yourself out of interviewing even if your GPA falls outside the range. Looking at firms like Skadden & Sidley, they both gave callbacks for the NY office to students with slightly lower GPAs than for the Chi office. On the other hand, for Paul Hastings this was the reverse. K&E Chi's minimum GPA range was higher than firms like S&C, Simpson Thacher, and Davis Polk in NY.
