    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Covington & Burling.

    Interview Details

    Initial communication was set up through a headhunter. Then I had an interview with the firm's recruiter. Then I met with 4-5 attorneys/partners. Covington is extremely selective. They call all references, read writing samples, etc. I have been involved in interviewing potential junior associates and it is always the same. Very selective, top grades, law review, etc.
