F*ck Latham. You probably didn't want to work for 3 years before getting shoved out the door during a mass purge anyway, right?
Assuming that Latham doesn't reject everyone from Georgetown this is just wrong. You are probably the same person that would complain when firms only accept the tip top students. In this case Latham decided the original poster wasn't a good fit even with exceptional qualifications and likely, not certainly, took someone lower in his place. If anything that means they were looking at the total package and should be applauded-not scorned. I imagine they try to CB the same rough amount each year to placate our career services.
Also, we all knew or should have known the big law business model before coming to law school. Some get pushed out, some make partner, and some flounder in what appears to be nothingness-the vast majority being the first or third. Complaining that it happened at Latham is just silly-it happens in all of big law.
