I am a 3L at a 40s T1 school. I started at a T4, top 15%, transferred. Now outside top 1/3 of class, but 2 book awards (my grades have been all over). No moot court, no law review or journal. I'd say I have above average work experience (I've won actual hearings under law student practice rules).
Anyway, through a really solid, very well connected family friend, I have an interview with a Vault 100 firm. I realize that they are meeting with me as a favor to him and that it might be a jerk off meeting, but is there any way I can convince them that I can do the job.
Anyone else get an offer this way? Advice welcome.
