did anyone else pick up the fact this chart was from 2005?
just do well, get in the top 1% of your class, and your fine from almost anywhere
okay, so i kid. but seriously, i dont get what people still don't understand. go to a T10 and be in the top 2/3 of your class. go to a t11-t14 and be in the top half. go to a t15-t30 and be in the top 1/3. don't go to anythign below that unless you get significant scholarship money.
you should be happy with 10 interviews from a high tier two. I wouldn't worry too much about the rejections. I got rejected from a lot of lower ranked firms then i got interviews from. just focus on acing the ones you've got
as a BU student who did OCI last year, I'd like to weigh in that you may have to "do well" academically to get a good job, but if you are in the top half you have a great shot and the curve is very favorable (in my opinion). i know many people that didnt have the best grade (around top half?) who still landed big law. I also only wanted to work in NYC and had no problem having a wide variety of options (better then boston actually).
