F500? Salary? Law school class rank? Debt?

Yes, F50 actually. Low 6 figure salary and debt. Was in top 20% for most of LS, might've slipped a little in the final semester because I really mailed it in.

That is a fantastically good outcome given your rank and the school's employment figures. Congratulations to you, but I would not recommend prospective law students attend Santa Clara hoping for the same outcome.

Had to work FT while studying for the bar too. I'm thankful for sites like this. They taught me not to listen to career services.

What did they tell you? I have been told I have crazy hustle, and I never have done anything close to that. Frankly, I don't know if I could because you also didn't know a post grad option awaiting even if you did succeed. Even discounting the fact you had to be 20%, way less than 20% would be psychologically capable of getting this all done every day.
