The hijack thing was funny.

I know of at least 3 USD students who will be summering at Latham.  (One LA, two SD)  Likewise, 4 going to Cooley, 3 to Baker, 4 to DLA, 3 Gibson, 2 Wilson Sonsini (in Palo Alto) and on and on.  Obviously USD doesn't place as many as UCLA/USC/T14/etc.  But, like Matthies said, going to a lesser school in the area you want to work often gets you there.  Good students at DePaul/Kent/John Marshall do quite well in the Chicago market.  Do you need grades?  Yes.    The fact is only ~1200 students graduate from the top 15 every year, but everyone on here pretends to be a Harvard admit.

Here's the USD data for 06.  I know that my year (2008) has done better, and 2009 kicked our ass (2008) in fall OCI.

That's interesting. How do you reconcile that with the fact that USD only has 12 people at Latham nationwide? You sure this wasn't an illusion you saw in the glaze of your obsessively waxed 12 year old Acura?

What might be happening is that they're clerks, not summer associates. For example, this guy http://3lforhire.com/resume.html clerked for three years at Pepper Hamilton, but they told him that he wasn't a true Summer Associate and would never get an offer.

Finally, I want to remind you that this thread posed a very specific challenge. If you can't meet that challenge then perhaps you should go shine your wheels.
