lol at T12... go to duke?
Interviewing ability/luck is the answer. So personality, and of course Connections and Work Expeprience obviously don't hurt.
Not to be rude, but where did you get this? Aren't you a 0L?
Have you ever interviewed for a job? If you have, you understand. I didn't say anything out of line.
And he asked it in THE PRE LAW FORUM. What does he expect?
Well, to be fair, he was asking about biglaw hiring. While it's certainly not totally different from regular interviewing, I don't think it's unreasonable to look for answers from people who have been through the process rather than randoms, nor do I think that there's anything wrong with questioning the credentials of those who respond. OCI in particular is a strange beast.
And the thread may be misplaced, but there are a number of 2Ls, 3Ls and grads who respond, particularly since the pre-law and student boards have been merged.
