Ugh, don't even joke about this. I have accepted an offer from my top choice, a total reach, and I'm now irrationally nervous that something will go terribly wrong between now and May.

EXACTLY EXACTLY what i'm going through right now after accepting an offer at a total reach firm. i think its because the oci process and everything has been building up for so long (since beginning of 1L year really) that once we actually get offers (esp. from a top choice) its hard to believe that the whole SA position search process is actually over and done.

Hmm, I think it's probably more common than you might think. Law students are a cutthroat bunch and scheming on a thing that's a mirage, I'm tryin to tell you now it's sabotage.

Yes, this exactly. I feel like things are so anti-climactic!

My question, why would this even work in the first place?

Okay, if you're like forwarding an e-mail written by the person in question, I guess it could. And if that's the case then you (the person who wrote the e-mail) are partly to blame too.

But if someone were to anonymously call a firm and say something negative about a potential SA hire? Why would the firm care? It'd be a pretty crappy firm that trusted an anonymous source over their own hire. Not only would the be a smidge paranoid, but they'd also be saying they do not have confidence in their own evaluation and hiring process.

You mean like the girl from HLS who forwarded a personal and controversial/racist emails to the firm & CoA judge that the other girl had offers for?

pretty sure you're completely mischaracterizing what happened.

The UVA admissions director stated that there were multiple attempts to sabotage applications, so I wouldn't be surprised if law students attempt to sabotage others by calling their firms. We're a crazy bunch of people. That said, I doubt a law student has ever successfully caused another to lose his or her offer due to this.
