Don't set up useless straw men like "am i [sic] screwed for the rest of my life?" Obviously, the answers to your two questions are "no" and "maybe" -- but you already knew that.

Ask better questions and you will get better answers. To that end, it would have been more useful to ask (1) how likely it is that you could find a biglaw job later on if you do not get one at OCI; (2) if forced to undertake that search, what are the best avenues for doing so; (3) if biglaw does not work out entirely, how likely is it that I will find some other job that will pay the bills?


yea you fucking moron.

Moderator addition: this is the sort of thing that will get you outed and banned.

Very, very, very low - unless you didn't take the 2L SA because you wanted to do DoJ honors or something. Some 3Ls miss it 2L year and get a it later, but the overwhelming majority of people who miss 2L big law miss it for good. Weird and shitty system.
