1L job search C/O 2019

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Jan 21, 2017 1:46 am

Saw the most recent entries into C/O 2018, thought the current 1L class could share info.

1L at lower T14, gone through several screeners and one CB, still waiting on results.

My CB was in a secondary home market, non diversity position.

ITT, include any/all of the following:

1) type of market
2) type of position
3) level of interview
4) general impressions from the interview

1L at a T20. Will be interning with a federal district court judge in a flyover. Interview was very casual.

OP here.

Done screeners at a mixture of major/secondary markets. I have a unique background (think tax, IP, previous firm experience).

My only CB was based off my background, no grades received. It was in the market I grew up in.

The interviews went really well. Sounds like there are limited spots, but fit seems to matter much more in that secondary market than grades/pedigree. I don't want to misrepresent here, but it was just the impression I got.

Has anybody interviewed with Skadden NYC for their 1L Scholars Program this cycle or previous cycles? I'm wondering what your experience was like and what the decision timeline looks like.

I know someone who interviewed with Latham Chi. But I think this person was an exception and the interviewer said that the interview was unusually early. No one else at my school has heard anything.

Yeah, the dings should be that much louder and more resounding now.

There's overlap with another thread about diversity SAs, I think this person posted his school range in there. Also, has anyone heard from Katten/Norton Rose Fulbright/Baker & McKenzie?

Paul Hastings' application deadline is the last day of February, that's so late.

Have not heard from NRF or Baker & McKenzie. I'm in Texas though so you might be talking about other offices. Lots of other firms in TX have already made moves and extended offers; makes me nervous.

Top 10% (just below 5%) at T20

No interviews so far.
One OCI interview upcoming (intern in the clerk's office of a federal appeals court).
One offer from a boutique firm after a conversation at a job fair and email resume/grades.
Only other applications are USAO (haven't seen yet if I'll get an interview) and a public interest firm with offices in DC.

Most likely, I'll take the boutique firm, but I'll interview for the appeals court.

School: Top 50
Market: Houston
Class rank: Top 10%
Interviews: 4
Dinged: Baker Mckenzie and Winstead
Pending: 21

If I don't hear back relatively soon, I'll start targeting small to mid-sized firms. I need to get paid for at least half my summer and may try to nab a state district judge here as well for the second half.
