I am at a T2, top 6%, Journal, and summered at the SEC. I had 36 OCI's, 12 Callbacks, 5 offers so far (2 more possible, including from a V5) and 3 withdrawn.

Point is its possible. Granted I am in NYC, but still, its possible. But in my view, it is necessary to finish in the top 20%.

Yea, where you went to law school has alot to do with it. You can't go to law school in, like, Arkansas, and expect to get offers from New York firms. For one thing, the old north, and the old south HATE each other still.  Especially during times when jobs are more scarce. So, like, consider where your marketable at a T2. I'm not saying DONT try to interview at NY firms. I'm just saying give yourself ALOT of backups.
