Just outside the top 10% at a T50 school. Sent out 33 apps for first week: 5 interviews, 17 rejects, 2 alternates, 9 pending.
Now I'm a bit disappointed by the low number, but I think the quality of my school and the economy have a lot to do with it.
Anyway, is there any rhyme or reason to this process?
Sidley Austin granted me an interview, I was kind of shocked. I didn't expect a V20 firm to accept me.
But then tons of firms in the 80's and 90's of the Vault ranking, like Venable, rejected me. I'm confused as to how this actually works. Was it what I did 1L summer (Environmental NGO)??
