I stayed in some nice hotels and ate some nice meals, but honestly, after the past few weeks, I sort of just want to sleep in my own bed, eat meals at my own apartment, and not be tempted by the small store that The W put in the corner of my room.


I am staring at one of those right now and desperately want to open the t-shirt in the impossibly small t-box.

Dear Recruiting Coordinator:

Thank you very much for requesting to interview me. When I examined your firm's website, I was very impressed with your attorneys' legal abilities and personal accomplishments. However, I regret to inform you that I will not be able to accept a position in your 2012 summer program. There is intense competition among law firms for the limited number of positions that I am able to accept. As a result, I am unable to accept summer positions at many of the well-qualified law firms that request to interview me.

I sincerely appreciate your interest in me, and I wish you the best of luck in the future.

Sincerely,

Anonymous User

The gummy bears in the glass bottle were my undoing (I shudder to think how expensive that was). I think other than the gummy bears, I limited myself to the Glenfiddich, a can of Diet Coke, a couple bottles of water, and a KIND bar.
