    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Davis Polk.

    Interview

    Partners focused on grades, subject matter expertise and interest, work ethic, commitment to law. The firm prefers someone who will not leave in 1-3 years. Associate interviews are more about culture - they want someone who is nice.
