+1. I also wonder why the likes of Skadden even bother to collect resumes from my T60 school... Is it not a waste of everybody's time?

I go to your school and Skadden took two SAs this past summer. I also know of one offer last year. In addition, I got a CB from a midsize NYC firm last year through the same process. So they do look at those resumes.

Two firms (WAY out of my league) contacted me from collection, CB's at both, and an offer from one of them (cancelled the other CB after).

It's how I got my V100 SA offer, and then full-time offer.

You got to sample the letter heads of many firms rejection letters.

From median at a T14 without plus factors, resume collect got me CB + offer at a V50, 2 CBs at V25s, a screener at a V10, a CB at a market paying regional firm, and four screeners with other regional firms.

3L here. I didn't accept it, but last year one of these turned into an SA offer for me.

Dear God, I hope I am this fortunate!
