And I'd reel off the names...next one "So who's you meet with today?" More names. I knew what to expect so I have no one to blame but myself, but by like the sixth time I forgot at least two of the names of the people I'd met with.
This happened to me too. I forgot the name of one of the partners I'd met, but I knew it was something stereotypically Jewish-sounding, with a Rosen- or a Golden- and a -stein or something. When the next partner was asking me whom I'd met with before, and I told him I couldn't remember and fumbled out my best guess, it probably sounded even more awkward than normally not remembering a name because it sounded like I was reeling off the membership rolls of the local B'nai B'rith with my attempts as he said, "who? who?"
Now, I'm Jewish, I look Jewish, I have a fairly Jewish name, and my resume says I'm on the Jewish Law Student Association. But he might have missed all that, and either way, I came off like a schmuck.
No offer, obviously.
