i think with a 168 you will have a hard time with the T14 except maybe gtown and duke. possibly UCLA.

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.
see, wasn't that simple??
it's not common at all. it was really weird. plus the letter was small. before i opened it up i assumed it was a rejection. it was from a top firm too- really weird
my point is that just b/c you dont receive a phone call in 2-3 days after the call back, there may still be hope.
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).
