Through networking, I got an interview at a very competitive law firm. I am at a second tier school and my grades are a tad below 1/3rd (like top 38%). It sounds like the place is giving me an initial interview (1 attorney interviewing me for 30 minutes).
Is there any chance I will get past the pre-screening interview because of my lack of elite school/grades? I am trying to get excited about going, but it's hard since I know this place would never have given me an interview if I applied directly (they don't even come to my school for OCI).
