I would say the most important thing to getting hired is your grades. Personality is a close second. Workaholic-playaholics will love it!

it's a great firm but not for everyone. they've done a lot to make life better but it's still big law and still a law firm. it seems like most people leave or want to leave. a few love it.

 Hated it...
Comment by: Jack Posted: November 4, 06
A good friend of a good friend worked there and absolutely hated it - eventually quit. But, he was into family and maybe it's not the place for people like that. Type-A, social butterfly, single, driven people probably will like it better.
