I'm bidding on some low V100 firms, like Mintz Levin and Fenwick.  Am I just being paranoid?  I'm worried that if I cut out Sidley-type firms that may be in better health, I won't get anything.

I don't know about Fenwick NY, but their Silicon Valley summer class had a rough time of it this year. Offer decisions haven't been made yet, but they were told on the first day that they wouldn't all get one.

a lot of the lower Vault firms are in even worse health.  I'd search ATL first.

But a couple of them are actually doing okay. 

The other problem is that a lot of them have very small classes so aren't really any less selective.

I don't even know what to bid on.  Just not even the first clue.  I'm dreading finishing my info spreadsheet and actually having to make decisions.
At least I can f-ing think.

Can someone please explain to me why it is such a horrible idea to bid two markets, other than that it makes you look uncommitted to the location? 

It's not.  But if there are a limited number of spots and they base what interviews you get on how highly you rank the firm in your bid list, then you might end up losing out on interview slots to people who focused on one market and prioritized those firms higher than you did.

I'm excited for 2L-- less learning about how to get murderers off the hook and big settlements for big whiners, and more about how to make banks richer and take advantage of the uneducated commoners. Yay.

I saw your FB schedule, ss.  Good work.

I'm looking forward to it because reading cases is a joke now, and preparing for exams will take maybe a long weekend, so I can spend most of my time doing other things.

Any thoughts on White and Case?  Their callback median is basically my GPA.

Not much new here. Just trying to get the new place livable. How about you?

And, windsor.

I gotta run, but I'll be back here tomorrow and we'll chat it up. Why are you so sure about windsor? It seems that only really cool people or giant nerds wear it. I'd like to be the former, but I might be the latter....
