    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Morrison & Foerster (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screening, enjoyable interview. Interviewer was quirky, and helped explained the position and what the firm was about. The process was simple, had the process expedited for me because of a competing job offer from another big law firm.
