All rejections created equal?
« on: January 05, 2006, 12:19:40 PM »
I have a ton of rejections, but some have asked me to reapply for the summer of my 2L year. Does this really mean that they would like me to reapply, or is it a standard thing firms put in rejection letters?

That's the standard pleasantry that shows up in the rejection letters i've received as well.

Thanks. :-) If they want transcripts, that's a good sign, right? Or rather, it's a better sign than a flat-out rejection?

Oh, you mean you got letters that say, basically: "we're not rejecting you for a 1L summer internship, but we want to see your grades first before we make a decision". If so, i've not received that kind of letter. I've either been invited to interview (still no law firm offers though) or been flatly rejected. The "let's-see-your-grades-first" sort of letter sounds a lot better than a rejection.

Who knows?  I don't know if this question can be answered.

Just apply there next year and find out!
