My conclusion is the job market sucks right now. For instance, I only landed ONE freaking interview, and I'm in the top third of my class AND on Law Review! There can be no other explanation for it. Oh well, at least I have a decent legal job now....
Notwithstanding your arguments about how much UNLV sucks, the fact of the matter is this: I only applied to Las Vegas firms (and many if not most of the associates who work at Las Vegas firms ARE UNLV graduates) , since I haven't any interest in practicing law outside of Las Vegas. So, this still does NOT explain why several of my classmates, many of whom who failed to rank, scored innumerable interviews and I didn't...It's a good thing that I don't have my heart set on being a litigator anyway, for if I did, I'd be crushed by the horrible experience I've had with OCI.
My intention was not to engage in a debate. I just wanted to make the point that if someone who is in the top third of her class and on Law Review, a credential I was led to believe is quite valuable to most employers, and is still unable to get interviews, there is something wrong here. There can only be one other explanation as to why my classmates are getting interviews: they are full-time students, whereas I'm a part-time student who has a full-time job.
