Which schools use a lottery system for On-Campus Interviewing?
« on: February 05, 2007, 11:05:04 PM »
By this, I mean that employers do not get to submit minimum requirements for the students they interview (class rank, law review, moot court, etc.).  If students are interested in interviewing, they put in a bid and are chosen completely at random.  Schools that I know of that do this are Chicago and Northwestern (although I imagine many t14s use this method as well).  Anybody else know of others?

As they do at UVA.

They do not, however, pre-screen at Penn, as this often becomes a focal point of Penn-UVA debates (yes, I've spent way too much time on this site).

I think pre-screening is a good thing - it stops you from wasting both your time and the employer's.
I must admit that I may have been infected with society's prejudices and predilections and attributed them to God . . . and that in years hence I may be seen as someone who was on the wrong side of history.  I don't believe such doubts make me a bad Christian.  I believe they make me human . . .

Absolutely.

I walked into interviews (Wachtell, Debevoise, etc.) where I absolutely knew they'd taken one look at my resume (with no grades/journal/moot court at my new school) and counted me out before I walked in the door.  Totally pointless.
I have to believe in a world outside my own mind. I have to believe that my actions still have meaning, even if I can't remember them. I have to believe that when my eyes are closed, the world's still there. Do I believe the world's still there? Is it still out there?... Yeah.
