Touche. Fair enough dude. I'm glad you did well, and I don't doubt that you know more than me about mountain west recruiting, especially if that is where you ended up landing a position (or at least targeting)... I'm actually a fan of yours on here (we have the U of A connection... or at least the AZ connection)... but I felt like you came on rather strong considering that I was just offering generalized speculation that probably (as far as generalizations go) isn't totally off as a rule of thumb.. Like I said though, feeling kind of feisty, and I came on strong so my apologies if I offend you.
No problem man. You looking to target AZ yourself or going elsewhere?
I've targeted multiple markets including AZ, ATL, TX, and NYC.. No luck yet.. But I don't have super-strong grades, and I am at a T20 (as opposed to Penn, which actually has pretty kick-ass placement power), so its not much of a surprise to me that I haven't landed private sector up to this point (and obv is not a good time to still be looking)...
I am starting to look more at Govt. and public interest options (which in many ways I would prob prefer to firm in any case), including some overseas non-profit type options... But getting private sector initially is nice for the loans--I'm happy for you man; I wish the legal market didn't suck so bad, making it ridiculously hard for many of us to get well-paying jobs, but I def feel happy for peers who do get something regardless of my own situation.
