Any Experience with Maynard Cooper?

Can anyone comment on this firm or the Birmingham area, and possibly give me some ammunition for an interview I have coming up? 

Thanks.

I don't know anything about that firm, but I can tell you that when I did a cost of living summary a couple years ago for places with a decent amount of law firms, that Birmingham's is great.

Something like $65,000 there = $160,000 in NYC.  I thought it sounded crazy, it's possible that my data sources were inaccurate.

Yeah, I did a similar calculation with Manhattan.  If you are to own your residence, what $90,000/yr  buys in Bham (what Maynard starts at) would require $265,000/yr in Manhattan.

Really puts things into perspective.  Maynord is highly selective, and this is just a screening interview, so hopefully things will go well.  I have a couple of screening interviews next week, so hopefully I can "wow" (or woo) them all :-P
