I'm shocked a seemingly normal fratter with LR credentials can't get something pretty solid.

I have several, sort of. My one remaining CB is in my "true" hometown--the place where I went to HS and my parents live--of Memphis, TN... there's really only one true firm there.

I thought I had 'colorable' ties to FL (went to FSU), TX (born there), GA (lots of family), and IN/IL (law school).

Dear God, I hate hippies.

Yeah that was pretty disturbing. The article linked in the video's info is helpful.

ETA: Median at CCN seems to be doing pretty well in the NYC market (from what I've been reading).

God that is just insane. At one point, he says "You have to use earmuffs" to a cop so she didn't listen to his "consensus." What. The. Fuck.

I think the near-constant use of "buzzwords" was what really pushed this into the top 1% of douchiness.

I think I laughed every time that one guy yelled "snakes" or "scumbags" at the (likely non-college-educated, and too poor to live in the city) security personnel.

flcath, did you have any interviews with firms from the Northeast, TX, or Cali?

I tried to search but didn't see it. Sorry to hear and good luck.

flcath: have you had mock interviews? to know whats going wrong with your callbacks. Your credentials seem pretty solid for big law, considering you are an ok interviewee.
