Yeah I think Goalie's advice is generally true but maybe not so much when you're dealing with branch offices with only a few practice areas? I wouldn't necessarily characterize Wilmer Boston that way but I have another Boston interview tomorrow where the office only has 3 practice areas, one of which is IP. I had to call a friend I know who works in that area to tell me something about it so I could be like, yes, I am interested in such and such and I'm not just some moron applying to your firm because it looks pretty.

Confused. Gah, I just hear so much conflicting info about this practice area stuff. Some people take that approach, and then others say that you need to be able to express a real interest in something and back it up. I hate this. I don't understand why it's not acceptable to be like, "I will practice ANY area of law if I can work in Boston. ANY AT ALL."

Dude, I am very busy searching WilmerHale's website trying to come up with something I can say that will make them hire me.Perhaps a lost cause haha.
I love how y'all who have given Wally such *&^% for so long come to his defense so quickly.(Not that you shouldn't have, because that was pretty mean).
