Hmm, Hunton Williams picked me, but about half of the others haven't including some other decent firms like Mckenna-Long and Aldridge.  I'm figuring if they strictly go by rankings I should have gotten interviews with everyone.

I'll have to agree with the previous posters. I have similar credentials to yours (top ranking, law review, book award, work experience yada yada yada).

I applied to a spread of firms.

I have interviews for all the vault firms, including what I assumed to be reaches.

I got dinged at the local & regional firms.

I assume they're not wasting their time with someone who they believe will be unlikely to be taking a summer associate gig with them.

I know this topic is over a year old, but I just want to add that I had a similar experience not just with large law firms, but also with my pre-law school jobs.
