Not surprisingly, many of the most attractive and preppy kids in my class got offers, almost regardless of grades. They outperformed their grades because they fit the BigLaw mold. Because they look sharp, corporate, and clean-cut, they look like someone BigLaw wants on the profile page or chatting with a client. Looks were far, far more important than I think most people give them credit. Sure, a 3.8 might land Wachtell, but for people with median and above median, the difference maker was being a good ol boy.
LOL at you thinking kids in our class are either of these things.
