I just would look more favorably at the person who has the higher ranking/better grades than the person who comes from a T14 with a lower rank and GPA who simply relies n their school name to get them to where they want to be.
And you're opinion matters here because...?? Unless you're a recruiter at a firm, what you would view more favorably is pretty irrelevant.
Wait a minute, easy slim. I guess i must have struck a nerve there
Who said my opinion mattered? If u dont like it, take it with a grain of salt and move on. Nobody is forcing you to accpet it. I see insecurity runs amuck on these boards.
Not offended at all - I'm just pointing out that your encouragement was more than a little naive since what you view as more favorable/better really doesn't matter since you're not in a position to offer anyone a job at this point in time.
It's nice that you think you're opinions are important enough to offend someone though.
When did my opinion on how i view how i would rather have it be, come off as encouragement. That last statement was merely an opinion. Take it or leave it because I'll still say what i want, to whom i want. Dont like it, log off.
My encouragement moreso came in a realistic view at the sentences above the last one that u did not quote. Where i said its not impossible to get into BIGLAW, but not very realistic either. Nonetheless, dont let that deter you from doing what you want to do.
Naive advice and encouragement
Who am i to say you'll never get a job in BIGLAW. I dont hold the key to that lock. But i can sure as hell tell you to not stop trying either and let the words of people like you deter them. That would be a sadcase
Im a realist and an optimist. I'll tell you the raw deal, but i wont tell you it CAN'T happen either
Obviously i offended you from the tone in which you wrote the sentence that sparked this along with your reply of a mere opinion, MY opinion.
