Thought it’d be useful to have a thread where people applying to NY for summer 2020 can discuss

Radio silence on my end from the ~15 places I applied to so far except for Skadden (PFO)

From what I understand, most other NYC firms dont even bother sending pfos since they get so many applications

I can't even imagine how many they get. Even half the students at the lowest ranked American schools probably send in Hail Mary applications.

Got a PFO from Skadden and a PFO from Akin Gump about a week after applying as well. Good luck everyone!

I have an interview offer from an NY firm.  I can talk more in PM. I'm surprised because it was an in-firm offer without an initial phone interview.

Congrats! Did the firm extend the offer by phone or email?

I knew of some firms who conducted telephone interviews as screenings. These weren't the typical firms who come to Canada to recruit, but rather ones who people applied to directly.

My guess is that if the firm makes over $1 billion annually they probably figure they can afford to take a chance and fly in people (on economy) without an initial phone screen.

Well. Firms making over 1 billion did that, so you seem to be wrong.

Well managed organizations don't waste money.

So what's your explanation then?

Those firms were well managed and therefore did phone screenings when warranted? Did you misread what I wrote originally?

Woah woah woah. Do you mean to tell me that it’s conceivable for some businesses to interview candidates in different ways based on their internal HR philosophy? Crazy. What a world.

I doubt that the OP started this thread so that a discussion like the last few posts could take place.  Let's return to the point of the thread and can the back and forth silliness.

    • I took the LSAT in July and was one of the test centres that got the digital exam. I personally found it way better than the traditional paper exam. I personally didn't have any issues with it, but i've heard of people who did. I especially appreciated the timer in the top right which said exactly how much time you have left in the section. One thing I did which I found helpful (although I realize it may not be for everyone), was I tapped on the time to hide it for most of the section to prevent me from constantly checking on it. Then, when there was 5ish minutes left in the section, I would tap it again to make sure I filled in all the questions and got to any questions that I may have flagged to review. Overall, in my one experience with it, I found that there were no hiccups and I actually found the timer and other aspects (such as highlighting, changing fonts, screen layout, tapping the bubbles as opposed to filling them in with a pencil, etc.) of the digital version to be beneficial to me. It's definitely not for everyone but I preferred it to the paper exam.
    • Also read Hoju’s absolutely amazing response to one of your earlier threads here:   Now read it again. And then one more time.
    • Stop drinking coffee and instead of walking, go for a run. You have a ton of nervous energy you need to 1. Expend and 2. Stop feeding.  I am not going to internet diagnose you. But I want you to consider whether you are using this site for reassurance seeking and/or obsessive info checking. People who have Anxiety (capital A) fall into a number of recognizable patterns. One of those is obsessive information gathering, and one of those is reassurance seeking. These patterns address a sense of paralysis and mask the fact that you cannot move forward with decisions and have peace of mind. If you find you cannot function - and even begin to panic - unless some one is constantly right there with you telling you that you are making all the right choices and setting out exactly what happens next, and assuring you it will all be ok, you are probably getting in over your head and Anxiety may be the culprit. Anxiety is a real honest to goodness diagnosis along with Diabetes and Depression. If this is what you are dealing with, it’s  really time to stop feeding it and start treating it.  You can feel better. This can get better. But get help.   Edit: in case this comes across as presumptuous, I have Anxiety. I treat it. Before I did, Life was pretty fucking shitty. So this is all with the very best wishes for you going forward if this is your particular demon.
