I mean, I have a really hard time believing this. If this is true and it's from a biglaw firm, you should at least send it in to ATL. You're a law student, they'll redact it and this firm isn't hiring you anyways.

I would if she didn't offer to be a resource while I keep looking, and told me to stay in touch in case something changes on their end. I mean nobody has to believe me, but I'm not making this shit up. It's way too close to finals time to be fucking around with stupid shit like this anyway.

Poster PM'ed me, and the language of the rejection does hint at the poster's fairly reasonable interpretation.

Lol @ the suggestion to forward to ATL. Two discretion fails don't make a right.

Heh - fair enough. If I need 9k+ posts to earn TLS street cred, I'm inclined to think it isn't worth it.

Best of luck to you, bro. I hope it all turns out in the end.

It's not whether you need street cred, I just need to recognize you as somewhat reputable on here so it doesn't get spread around without my consent.

And I'm not reputable... :?

I was just curious if I knew who the firm was based off it. I have two guess in mind is why I was curious.

I need some advice. I still have a cb pending, a lawyer in the firm emailed me today and asked my job situation. Technically i do have a summer offer with a consulting company. Would it be wise to say I have an offer I have not committed to leaving out the fact that it is not a law firm?
