    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Weil Gotshal.

    Interview

    2.5 hr interview with 5 people followed by lunch. There were no surprising questions, mostly conversational supplemented by questions about my resume. Meet with people from all different departments and positions (litigation v. transactional, associates and partners). People were very friendly and social. Be prepared to keep conversation going and talk about lots of topics. It did not feel as long as it sounds (two and a half hrs), which is probably a good sign. Professional attire is obviously expected.

    This is very annoying...I only wanted to write one review but this website is making me submit other reviews just to submit the original one. Now I have to write a minimum of 50 words to make sure this one goes through. Oh well, what a waste of time for everyone.
