Job Search / Anyone interview for the DOJ Honors Program?
« on: October 28, 2009, 08:28:06 AM »
And if so, do you know if any of your references have been contacted?

And any idea how many people are interviewing?

Basically, this thread is to talk about the program.

Job Search / Bethesda Maryland Firm: Paley Rothman
« on: February 26, 2009, 06:01:14 PM »
So I've found this smallish 50 lawyer firm in Bethesda, Maryland called Paley Rothman. It's apparently pretty well respected in the suburbs around Washington, DC and I am considering checking it out and sending a resume their way for this summer.

Does anyone know anything about the firm? Associate salary, reputation, etc?


Job Search / Has anyone heard from the DOJ SLIP yet?

Has anybody gotten contacted with an offer from DOJ yet?

Anyone know anything about this firm?

Job Search / So what exactly qualifies as BIGLAW?
« on: September 02, 2008, 04:34:25 PM »
Any firm in the Vault 100? AMLAW 250? Any firm that pays market?

What is the cutoff for a firm to be considered BIGLAW?

Does it make a significant difference in the chance of getting a callback if the interview is pre-screened instead of a lottery?

I've seen numbers like 15-25% of interviews get a callback. Does pre-screening significantly raise the percentage of callbacks?

My gut tells me it should since the firm has already evaluated you on some level and given you the ok.

So if someone is sitting at say 26% and the firm says Top 20% preferred, do you think that 26% is competitive to land an interview? I'm curious as to what people think about this. How much leeway is there in the "preferred" language?

Job Search / Class Rank is out: Did I get screwed out of top 10%?
« on: July 08, 2008, 12:28:31 PM »
My school has a definite hard cutoff for firms that interview. The top firms only interview the top 10 percent at my school.

Tha rankings came out today.

Top 10%: 3.69 and up
My GPA:  3.6896

Only the broad range has been posted. I have not received any notification of where exactly I am.

I check my online transcript. 3.68 is what it says. They rounded down. Apparently I am .0004 from being at a 3.69.

Do you think they may have rounded the 3.69 in the rankings for simplicity's sake or am I really going to miss out interviewing with the best firms because I am 4 ten-thousandths of a point off?

If true, .0004 could actually cost me a lot of interview opportunities. That's messed up.

Do you think I've actually been rounded up and not been notified yet?
