Does it mean anything when a firm you've applied to asks for a transcript, or has my desperation driven me nuts?
I'm 3L at a top 20 school, in the middle of my class...I applied to a BigLaw firm a week ago and got an email today requesting a copy of my transcripts.
Does that mean they've seen the GPA on my resume and are still willing to consider me? Or is getting the transcript merely a meaningless formality?
I realize I could just wait for my rejection letter/email to come, but I'm desperate enough to ask what you guys think (I realize I am opening myself up to extreme abuse here, btw).
Don't read too much into it and send them the transcript. Most likely, no one here can answer your question unless they just happen to sit on the hiring committee of the firm in question.
Couple of questions, though, since I reinterviewed as a 3L and might have some tips for you.
1. Why are you reinterviewing?
2. Which markets and is your school a feeder into those markets?
3. Are you changing markets from your summer firm?
