I know people who were below median at CLS who got V20 in NY. Granted Harvard's no Columbia, but I think that ruling out V20 is unnecessary. I would rule out V1-3, 5 though.

There may be more people who want to go to New York but there are MANY more law firm positions in New York. Look at the summer associate class sizes in NY compared to DC. Plenty of NY offices have 100+ summers. Not a single DC office has 100, and most have no more than 30 or so.DC also attracts an inordinate number of top students in my opinion. People who want to go into government, appellate litigation, etc. So yes, DC is (in my opinion) much tougher. Unless of course you go to school here in which case slightly different story.
What, you're not applying to Atlanta, either? You two are the only 2010 LSDers I know with strong Atlanta ties.
thanks again to all. i can't find the LSN-type website for associate jobs. aquarium had posted the link, and apparently deleted the messages. i'm sure it will be circulating again before too long. thanks, pat, and everyone else who put in their two cents. i'm keeping my fingers crossed.
