I'm a rising junior at a target school (3.6 gpa) gunning for MBB. Basically, there's a senior partner (at MBB) that I know very well, but he is at a different office than where I'm applying to. Would he have any pull in helping me at the office I'm applying to? Also, how much pull in general do partners have in recruiting? I'm meeting with one (same firm as other senior partner) at the office to where I'm applying to next week.
Lastly, the OCR for my university recruits for a different office than I'm hoping for. Is it harder to get a different office than the once that OCR recruits for?
Thanks in advance. Any advice as well would be awesome
