so i just got all my grades and am trying to research what firms i want to bid on in the upcoming OCI bidding process. while we can't view the firms until tuesday, the CDO website has a list of firms that came last year and i want to start doing my research. anyway, im just confused about while we can "research" the law firm, how do we know what their hiring criteria is? as in "do i have to be in top 5%/10%/25%" etc etc. I go to a decent school (top 20) and since we only get a limited number of bids, how do i know what firms i have a shot at? my GPA was good (top quarter) but i dont want to waste my time if the firm wont bother with anyone not in the top 10%
so basically..how do i know what type of GPAs the firms are looking for? or should i just assume its all competitive and they all want the top 10%?
