2L job search / Re: Question on job offers
« on: October 12, 2009, 01:20:18 AM »
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.

When people say "shitstorm" I'm not sure they're bemoaning the fate of the top 10%. Yes, people who graded on LR have opportunities, but it seems that people with averages above 177 do not.

I know more than one person with 177 average who have multiple OFFERS.  There are opportunities.

Let's not turn this into an anecdotal game, unless there's a general trend of median + multiple offers, which there clearly isn't.  FWIW, I know someone with a 179 average who struck out at the callback stage.

Yes, you're right, let's not do that.

Oh wait hmmm.....

There are at least 3 (YLS, HLS, NYU), and I know of one other person who was trying to transfer, but don't know how that turned out.

Every moment that goes by without finding out about law review, I die a little inside.

Haha.  It can't be more than a few more hours wait.  Stay strong.

ikea in chicago. delivers. amazingness.

In that case, I suggest speaking with this poster.

Are you talking to Illini Boy?  I'm also considering bidding on them.

15 bids just feels like enough. Meh.

If you're doing Chicago and no other market, this is probably TCR.

I talked to a Loyola grad who said that Sidley Chicago is a great place to work, and to stay away from Sonnenshein at all costs.

Sonnenshein isn't having a summer program in 2010, so that should be easy.

I can't even find 15 I'm interested in
