I applied online. I interviewed at Thompson Wigdor & Gilly (New York, NY).
I never made it to the interview. I received an email asking to come in for an interview. I asked her what day worked for her she said the next day in the morning. I was battling a 24 hour bug and wouldn't have been able to make it the next day so I emailed asking for her availability for the rest of the week and never heard back. When I emailed again the next day she shrugged it off and basically said "well that's my availability too bad." I didn't even go in for an interview and I'm turned off by this place.
