It isn't impossible to get interviews and callbacks from BigLaw coming from a T2. I have had plenty of V10-V20 interviews and have a lot of callbacks scheduled. However, logistics can be a problem. V10 firms tend not to visit non-T1 schools, meaning that I have had to travel to firms just for screening interviews. That can be tiring and means missing more school than you would at higher ranked schools. If BigLaw is all you want, T2 can be a gamble- everyone I know who has gotten those interviews at my school is ranked in the top 3%-5%. It isn't easy to have that class rank at any school. If you go to T2, you are going to have to work harder than you would at a T14 just to ensure that you get the interviews you want.
