A Box Lunch to Remember.  Color.

Just watched Heathers.  I'm surprised that it's a cult classic.  I thought it was terrible.

Do you think we'll have to turn in the advanced legal writing exercises tomorrow?

Calm thyself.  Save the righteous anger for something really important, like how CBIs stopped having the good lunches.

What sort of lunches do CBIs have now?

Box lunches.  They're mediocre at best.

How do we get into clinics?  I'm top 20 on the Employment Discrimination list.

I'm still going to be in NYC for the next two days if anyone wants to get a beer on Friday or Saturday.  Just hanging out.  Promise not to talk law unless you bring it up.

I suggested that anecdotes are kinda fruitless with my 179 example.  There are numerous outliers on both ends of the grading spectrum, and the median, with respect to callbacks/offers.  I know above median types with no offers, and below median types who did well at this OCI.

The 179 person will do well in the long term, I'm sure.  He or she wanted to be a public defender, and hopefully he or she will get that job for next summer.

That's weird that you'd do that, cause you totally haven't bragged about anything else the last month or so.

TITCR, though it's not clear to my why you aren't bragging more about your good news.

I think this is sarcasm?  Sorry if I'm being a feminine hygiene product.

And knowing is half the battle.

Nah, I kid.  We're all pretty tense right now.  I've had callbacks, no news.

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.

39
I know someone who did Chicago with top 10% + LR + bad-ass suit = 12 callbacks, no idea about the offers.

I am very much looking forward to the extended vacation otherwise known as fall quarter.
