Fortunately, I did in another city. For all those trying, I can't stress enough to plan on not getting a spot in ATL and also concentrating heavily on home markets and NY.
This. Fucking wasteland.
Im shocked people are so pessimistic. Maybe it varies wildly by school because I have middle third grades at a HYS and a decent resume (corporate leaning) but recruiters/legal staffing consultants, who shouldn't be biased, are making it seem like ATL is clamoring for students from top schools regardless of grades.
LOL going to the best law school in the entire country might have something to do with ATL not being that hard.
ehh this economy is real.. somewhere around 10% of our class will probably end up without really desirable employment and it definitely isn't just "the bottom 10%" like most believe. Since a significant number of people do get market paying, or close to market, non-biglaw employment the numbers aren't as bad as the typical focus on biglaw shows. Still its not as rosy as 2006 when just about everyone who wanted biglaw got it.
