UNC/UVA/Duke/Emory are all good - I know people from all 4 with big networks from their class in ATL. Any M7 is good anywhere. Vandy is probably ok too, but to a lesser extent. I imagine GT would work, but that's a guess.

What can you expect the hiring process to be once you interview? I applied for a firm posting, had an interview with two partners for the practice group and then received a request for a second interview the same day. The second interview was with mix of partners and associates from the practice group. I sent thank you emails next day, but not a peep since I received a couple generic responses. I followed up with the partners from the first interview asking for any updates in their decision...

“when I think back, from my obviously privileged position, on the texture of daily life during the past four years, all the attention sucked up by this black hole of a president has been its own sort of loss. Every moment spent thinking about Trump is a moment that could have been spent contemplating, creating or appreciating something else. Trump is a narcissistic philistine, and he bent American culture toward him.” I think about this all the time as I spend hours in this bowl.

Do you negotiate salary upfront in the interview process or after you get an offer? Base salary for initial position seemed lower than expectation but think I can negotiate if I get an offer.
