Lucky little 3Ls with offers, are you dreaming of the Biglaw days that await you? If your firm didn’t tell you last summer that you would be deferred, you should be hearing about your start date soon… right?
Some people have started hearing news. Those heading to White & Case have not gotten start dates but they have heard about their deferral stipend. From a firm e-mail:
We are pleased to confirm that we will be paying a stipend of US$65,000 to students whose start dates have been deferred to Fall 2011. Almost all of you have accepted your offers, and we look forward to having you back at the Firm.
Some especially lucky little 3Ls actually know when they get to start…
An excited Cadwalader-bound law student has a letter in hand with a solid date:
Cadwalader – 9/27 start date, NYC market ($160k). I can’t speak for the other offices, though the letter seemed to be speaking collectively. Trying to redeem the good name of CWT!!!
That’s a week earlier than last year, according to our 2009 start date round-up.
At least two firms that conducted layoffs early and often are being open and transparent with their new recruits.
Other 3Ls are not so lucky:
So what’s up with firm start dates for the class of 2010? PHNY [Paul Hastings - New York] hasn’t given us our start dates yet, even though they’re holding a 1L reception this week and want us to attend.
Here’s an open thread. Have you heard your start date? If so, brag in the comments or send us an email. If you haven’t yet heard, feel free to whine in the comments. (No need to send us a whiny email.)
