That's the only time I mentioned my offer in the public, and I would never do it again.
oh that's rough. but honestly, who comes up to someone just to say that they have had 11 CBs (because that's what filling out NALP forms corresponds to)?
He and I are facebook friends. I think that it's still commendable for someone to get 11 CBs. Even if he was offer-less, he should still be proud of it.
(I now actually regret that I put the story here.)
With no offer, the # of CBs is just ego stroking/pissing contest.
I'm more impressed with someone who gets an offer from their 1 or 2 CBs, not the guy who fails to convert almost a dozen times.
