FWIW...Have heard, at least for revolving door DC firms, that summer classes decreased (in some cases dramatically) this year because fewer than usual people joined the new administration. But that doesn't account for NYC or any non-DC firms reducing their class sizes.

Edit: accidental anon, don't know how to change it :cry:


Anecdotal but my DC firm apparently has a substantially bigger class than last year


Are you at one of the traditional Republican administration feeder firms like Gibson or Jones Day? Anecdotal, but it seemed like those firms were making more offers for DC at my HYS than the traditional Dem firms like Wilmer or A&P. Would make sense too if it were revolving door-driven.


Nope, not one of the right-leaning firms. I don't know if they made more offers than usual, I think they may have just over-yielded. Probably an outlier

Their stats from last year had 20 in the NYC office. This seems about right for floating at their current level.

Most of the summer class hails from second or third tier law schools. Not that school diversity is a bad thing per se, but it speaks to a rapid decline. Cadwalader used to be able to snare a handful of kids from Harvard and Columbia; I remember the events it would put on when I was a student. Its reputation has sunk so far over the past five years.

Ahhhh, yeah, that's similar to last year too. Continuing trend in a long sad decline.

So I doublechecked the list and couldn't find the person. On the other hand, there's only 64 associates listed, and I couldn't find where I was missing a person when I did the write-up. So maybe that's the William & Mary person

I don't know where the first poster got his/her information, but I have it on good authority that the acceptance rate was higher than in recent years and the class is the largest in recent years.

Stanford: 3
GULC: 5
GW: 3
Vandy: 3

I'm too lazy to count the rest. A few from Penn, Howard, American, Catholic, Berkley, Emory, and UT.
