Slept 12 hours last night, now somewhere between refreshed and groggy.
Good to see the 0L kept posting, despite not knowing what he is talking about. (I spent my 0L summer developing a website for law school admissions advice where I interviewed 30+ adcomms - I have a pretty good idea about how this admissions game works)
Sounds like an interesting summer. The general rule is that 0Ls are pretty clueless. Then again, so are 1Ls, but they at least have some experience to draw from.
Honestly, it was pretty hard to get past the "we consider every application" BS, but some were pretty honest and gave some surprising information.
My take on law school administrators is that the general rule is they are incompetent. At first, I thought it was just my school. But as I have talked to more and more law students, I realize that people become law school administrators so they can do nothing and get paid. To my school's credit, they have started to realize and cleaned out the entire career services regime and replaced them with folks who, thus far, have demonstrated some degree of understanding the legal market.
