I am in a similar position gradewise: just a little bit above top quarter and no CBs. Waiting on two firms, but probably dinged everywhere. Biglaw is not my holy grail, so I take it in stride. I have a good internship in house right now. It's not going to be easy, but I don't believe we're all screwed, in the general sense.
Agreed. All the 3Ls who were in the same position as us last year ended up getting summer jobs. Sure, a lot of them could have gotten firm jobs a few years ago, but it doesn't seem like biglaw will ever return to those times. We're not screwed, we just have to try harder. Plus, I'm still optimistic that more people will get offers. Callbacks are still going on so hopefully in a few weeks, this thread will be full of good news.
