Does this mean transfer to GULC?  You will not be getting callbacks.

I want it to happen as much as you do, sir.

Just telling you the breaks and how it is.  Welcome to the economy.

19, 3 of which aren't firms.

I don't have high hopes for them, though, a number of the ones left are the most selective places to which I applied.  Like, if I can't get a callback at Winston & Strawn I sure as @#!* am not getting one at Skadden.

I think I'm just going to spend the time I've been spending researching firms to apply to public interest and gov't.
At least I can f-ing think.

Well, not even, since I cannot work in DC, gov't is going to be flooded, and straight public interest hiring is arguably worse than firm hiring.
At least I can f-ing think.

What is your local market?  State / local gov makes fine money.

I don't have a "local market".  All my connections are to major markets -- for @#!*'s sake, I grew up in DC.  The secondary market that my new school is in is in absolute shambles (one of the worst), and both state and local gov't are contemplating catastrophic budget cuts so they're definitely not hiring ANYONE.  Oh, and my SO refuses to live there.  Like, flat-out despises the place. 

I give up.  I'm now sitting in interviews and thinking the whole time, Why am I even here?  I have a Ropes interview later this afternoon and I'm honestly contemplating saying to the interviewer to just forget about talking about my resume because I'm obviously unqualified.  Everyone they hired from my old school even before ITE was law review, which I was not.
At least I can f-ing think.
