I heard a rumor that Mortara sets the median at 174. He aims to separate the future CoA clerks from the posers. Many people earn 173-5s, and a few hit 185s.
I assume that job searches are going well, considering almost every 2011 student in this thread is on Law Review. Just don't take it for granted; it's a blessing. I just had an interview with a firm that clearly had no intention of hiring me, so much so that I didn't interview with a single partner.
