My understanding (1L) is that working here 1L summer plus median grades and a good interview is enough. But most people don't want to stay when similar grades can get you NYC.
Takes a lot of luck - Philly was not hiring much this year and turned out to be much more competitive than people expected.
So worse than 2011?
