Has anyone heard from Skadden DC?
Not DC, but I know that other Skadden offices (including Boston) are done hiring.

Re: Di I still have a chance at a 1L Diversity Position

which ones? kind of in a similar boat, radio silence from most (silence from ropes, cleary dc, skadden), one ding (simpson), one offer, not sure what the fuck is up and what this means for 2L OCI I haven’t heard from or been dinged ar any of those. Nt really worried about 2L OCI since my grades are...

Re: Splitting 2L summer between two offices?

Definitely a firm specific thing. I know for example that Ropes & Gray permits and even encourages splitting if a candidate is interested (I think usually between Boston/NYC). Get the offer first, also try to find out if the firm has done it before. The Vault guide they distribute to Career Services...

Re: Unlocking 1L SAs

Wanted to share a few thoughts based on my experience (and my classmates') applying to 1L SAs this year in the hope they might help. - Grades matter for getting in the door, but I think your overall resume matters a lot more once you get a screener/actually noticed. I think firms recognize that you ...

GULC to Harvard?

This is a purely hypothetical question as of now. I’m an incoming student at GULC. Is a transfer to H worth it after a very good 1L from a lower T14? Assuming you’d need to be top 5% to have a chance. Would those numbers as a transfer student to H have a serious material benefit at OCI/job prospects...

Re: US Big Law -> Expat/Overseas Gig?

I know Cravath lets associates do a rotation (I think over a year?) in London. But definitely be prepared to do Cap Markets work if you’re going to work abroad. That’s primarily what international offices need US lawyers for. Outside of London (plenty of London offices and magic circle firms go to O...

Getting a biglaw SA in London

I'll preface this by saying I'm an incoming 1L at a T14 so I may be getting ahead of myself. However, I am very interested in landing a 2L SA in London in the future. Even though I'm an American and spent most of my life here, I have family in London, speak a couple foreign languages, and grew up in...

I found admissions very helpful when I visited. But I asked more about the school and programs I was interested in rather than my application. Gave me stuff to research and talk about with my LOCI.

In retrospect, would any current GULC students now be willing to take more $$$ at a Vandy/UCLA/Texas caliber school than attend GULC? Why or why not? I’m debating this right now and it’s a bit difficult. GULC seems to do better in the markets I want (DC, NYC, Boston, northeast). But the scholarship...
