Looking to apply to lit boutiques, but am aware from friends who were looking last year that the whole District was a giant mess with administration turnover and government exodus, among other issues. Curious how many have started applying to places like Kellogg, Molo, etc. or if there are words of wisdom on timing.
FWIW, I was a 1st year assoc at a DC firm, spent a year clerking on a COA (not 2/9/DC), and am now in district court (non-DC but close enough to see DC friends sometimes). Top 25-ish% from a non-HYS T14. Scared sh*tless based on people's results last year.
Not sure about the market question, but I think the grades might be a bigger issue for some of the DC boutiques. I don't think top 25% is going to cut it at Kellogg.
