show us a pic of your monogrammed bryan cave pom poms, unnecessarily anonymous lil breh
yep, I summered there: anonymous so people don't know which of us I am. It's not a pretentious place, but it clearly is the only national firm in the market. They know it and, what's more, every other firm in St. Louis knows it too. If you interview at other places, they'll all have negative things to say about Bryan Cave hours and environment, none of which rang true after spending a summer there. I don't know where all this BC hate comes from in this years' rising 2L class...I can only assume people are afraid they won't get a job there and want to be able to say they didn't want it anyway.
Snark aside, you're not doing a bang-up job of convincing people bc isn't pretentious with all the talk of inferiority complexes and such. Can't say I wouldn't be tempted to do the same thing if someone talked smack about my firm, but the defensiveness/offense is the best defense approach probably isn't the best tactic.
For 2L reference, the two people I know who summered at bc are nice enough. this guy's not necessarily putting a great face on them here IMO, but you'll understand if you summer and like your firm a lot. Don't let it put you off, it's probably a good sign - not many people are going to stick up for a place that treats them badly (though summers don't really know jack about that, I'd be worried about my firm's financial health if they treated associates like they do summers). Prestige doesn't build loyalty from what I've seen, but being a good place to work will (and money/prestige certainly won't hurt in the presence of that necessary condition).
And with that, I'm done cluttering up this thread with nonsense. Best of luck to everyone - crush dem interviews, cop dat jerb.
