    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Cravath Swaine.

    Interview Details

    Process took over two months (due to travel delays). I interviewed twice at Cravath, and each time I was quickly notified of the future interviews. I interviewed with three people each time, and each set of interviews lasted about 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Beware that travel costs are not covered by the company.
