My grades are fine, but probably preclude W&C and Cravath-type firms, so please don't suggest them. Right now, I'm looking at these places:
Quinn Emmanuel (they sound great, and I heard they're a bit of a sweatshop, which is all the better ITE)
Kirkland (probably NYC more than Chicago)
Crowell and Moring (I heard good things from others)
Any other suggestions?
If I'm really interested in a firm like Quinn, would they mind if I interviewed in multiple offices?
(speaking for NY offices only):
Gibson Dunn if you want to work day and night around the clock.
Crowell Moring if you don't want to work day and night around the clock but get the same pay. (excluding bonuses of course)
Kirkland, more towards Gibson Dunn environment but not quite as bad (debatable though).
Haven't worked with people or know any people at Boise or Quinn so I can't speak to those two.
Hey, Sands. Just a quick question (probably a little off topic, sorry): I understand that people work around the clock at these big firms, but is the work really that tedious? Is it really that boring? If you're in litigation, does it really come down to just doing document review round the clock?
I don't mind working hard; I just want to also do some interesting work. I understand I'm going to be pulling time doing things that aren't quite so "sexy." But, when it's all said and done, I want to get good experience and do some interesting work while learning what it really takes to be a lawyer.
Can you speak to that a little bit?
