QuoteI love how people act like the DA and PD's office will hire anyone with a JD and a pulse. Sorry to crush your notions of superselective average DA/PD offices but it is, without a doubt, easier to land small town PD and DA jobs than biglaw, and it gets easier to land DA/PD job the less desirable the geographic area is. It matters whether the guy has artifically narrowed his search and is only applying to firms in NYC...

Also, biglaw tends to hire in fall of 2L year and you get your offer in fall of 3L year, so people who are left in the job applicant pool post-graduation tend to be people who didn't get biglaw or midlaw or small law with SA programs.
Quotebut you certainly haven't offered any evidence that private sector hiring is more competitive than public sector hiring in general.I didn't make that claim (and certainly wouldn't sector-wide). My only claim is that biglaw (Vault100, generally) is more selective than the average small town DA/Public Defender job.

I went to Rutgers-Camden, graduated with a 3.36(even though not great - thought i'd have something by now) and still waiting on bar results
camden doesn't rank outside the top 15% so i know for sure i wasn't in the top 15%. I've looked into DE and PA but still shooting blanks
