I anticipate there will be quite a bit of surprise and shock when you all see each other.

I showed up, only because I was expecting to hang with my fellow Cravath invitees, and no one was there. Alas...

Anyone else thinking of dropping out? I'm not bottom third at Cornell, more like top third, but only 1 CB, so pretty much same position as you guys.

I didn't bid aggressively at all, there were maybe 5 slight reaches, and 12 targets, I guess I'm just a shitty interviewer.

Thankfully I have ties to Boston. I haven't been home since NYC, but will start the mass mailing as soon as the Boston fair ends.

Have faith oh brothers and sisters. The Almighty DeRosa has promised us all gainful employment. We shall have it, or exact out revenge on his office!

Nah, but seriously, I agree this blows

26 screeners, 8 of which were from open sign up. But if I recall correctly, at least 10-12 were GPA flexible NYC firms. And yes... just the 1 CB from delaware. I know people with lower gpas than me with more callbacks. And I'm not an aspie, hideous, or overweight. I've even been told by my a previous employer that i have a "presence" about me that plays well with clients. Maybe not having a journal really hurt me...
