Either way, I think OP is a bigger anomaly than someone below median with a handful of callbacks at C or N. I still haven't talked to anyone with no callbacks, but maybe my friend group is a bit skewed as well. I'm also curious to know if this is NYU or CLS. I have an offer wayyy out of my grade range, and I know there's no way I would have gotten it if I weren't at CN, given my shit GPA. So I'll represent the other position, whose incredibly thankful I came to my school, otherwise I would have been shit up a creek.
Hahaha I wouldn't come on a website to anonymously brag to random people about how well I do socially. I know there isn't any way to prove this, but making many friends and finding attractive people to date has never been a problem for me. I promise I'm not a weirdo, and by the time you're in your mid 20s I'd imagine you at least have some vague idea that people don't generally respond well to you.
Maybe I don't get the aspects of my background out like I should in an interview or something, but again I got good feedback on it so I'm not sure. I feel like I'm just kind of in this cloudy, bullshitty world right now where it's hard to know why things have happened this way.
Fair enough. And I guess you run into the disconnect between being someone who is outwardly social and portraying yourself that way for 20 minutes. (I think a lot of our classmates can pretend to be normal for 20 minutes; either that, or they all have kickass grades, because there sure are a lot of train wrecks with quality callback numbers.) That's why I love the lunch part of the callback; I think they're the great equalizer, since a lot of law school students can't hide their freak flag for that long.
Since I'm sure your already mass-mailing, maybe go talk to Career Services and see what they think. Apparently they work hard for students with no call-backs, since every 2L without a job makes them look bad. Good luck, have fun, and swallow.
