Could you post your stats?


Horrible GPA/Below median. T14. No mock trial/moot court. Secondary journal. Criminal Clinic. Both summers and three semesters at a PD office.

What did you write about in your cover letter? I had a lot of success last year but not as much this year. Do you have trial experience?

Ding at Colorado. Well, I think that's all for me, folks. I don't think I'm going to EJW for just one interview. I'd rather save that $500 for rent and car payments in the event that I don't get a paying position for the jobs where I've already done screeners.

I'm wondering if it's worth $500 for me to go for one job interview. I mean, the interview might pay off... Or it might not. The table talk might pay off, or maybe not. But that's significant $$$ for a lot of maybes.

Still holding out hope for legal aid but other than that it's all dings. Is it time to start applying to prosecutor offices? Just kidding.

I have that stupid "Ding, fries are done, Ding fries are done!" song from Family Guy stuck in my head.

I didn't expect any of us to do really great but... Man, with the exception of that one guy, we got killed ITT. Sorry it hasn't worked out for you Al. Hopefully well all get local jobs.
