If a target firm will be at both PLIP and OCI, is it better to bid on the same firm twice to increase odds? Or is it better to use a complementary approach and bid on firms at PLIP that will NOT be at OCI? Any other feedback welcome.
Hi there, I asked career service the same question, they suggested biding IP boutiques at PLIP and other general practice firms at OCI if you are not dead set on IP (some firms like Jones Day claimed they will only interview a candidate once per office).
I am not sure if this is correct but I'll bid everything possible in my target market.
Just apply to firms at PLIP that arent one of the special ones (firms that have policies like jones day), if you're not set on IP. Also apply to boutiques that won't be at NU oci. Then, for oci, bid on whatever firm for oci and put IP boutiques at the lower end of your list so you don't waste high bids and you'll still get IP boutiques. Not much IP action going on at NU IMO. PM me for what I did and other specific details.
