Job Search / Top Firms in LA
« on: September 23, 2008, 03:19:10 PM »
What are the top firms (in order) in Los Angeles... not the best firms that are based in LA, but rather the firms that are the best known in the area... I don't have access to that section of the Vault.

Also, are there major pluses in working for the main office for a firm over one of their "satellite offices." (I.e., working for an LA based firm in LA rather than a NY based firm in LA)?

Job Search / picking firms after offers
« on: August 24, 2008, 01:31:22 PM »
my boyfriend is at a t-20 school (good grades, LR)... right now he has 2 offers for next summer, one from a V5, one from a V10... a bunch of callbacks take place in the next few weeks, ranging between V5 and V60+.  between the 2 offers, he got better vibes from the "less prestigious" one, and probably the best vibe from a callback in below the V50.  ultimately, is there a big difference between V5, V10, V20, V50?  is it really best to pick off prestige, or to choose based on where you see yourself fitting in best (and making additional visits to the firm).

also, with the NALP 45 day policy, if you haven't heard from a firm at the tail-end of callbacks right before you need to let another firm know, is it okay to mention your exploding offer?

Choosing the Right Law School / Holding at 2 Schools? Legit?
« on: May 17, 2008, 06:18:56 AM »
Please don't flame me - I'm just asking a question.

Yesterday I was talking to parents of a 0L.  She is accepted into 2 good law schools, and has still not decided between the 2 (she has been into both since the winter, so this is not a recent WL-->admit).  Anyways, she's been paying deposits for both schools and accepted seats at both.  Is this legit?  At what point do you have to give a definite NO to one of them?  Obviously, you can't go to both schools, and there are plenty of people on the waitlist, so holding at 2 schools seems quite (for lack of a better word) douchy.
