    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Davis Polk (New York, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was immediately set up following a brief phone call. Moderate to easy process. When you get to the office three hiring managers will independently interview you. The whole process took approximately 2 hours. I heard back two weeks after the interview.
