In hindsight, if I was running a law firm I would tell my SA's this as well, to reduce anxiety and competition among the class (even if in reality there were not enough spots for everyone). It is scary. And it was, in my opinion, unfair. I see it as a blessing in disguise though, because I wouldn't want to work in a place like that anyway. Rising 2L's - choose your firm wisely.
Some firms that realize they do not have spots for everyone actually announce that in advance, which I feel is more fair. Then people can start making backup plans during the summer. I now intensely dislike PH and am grateful for my offer from another firm.
Is this in line with their historic behavior for offers or is this a new low?
Also makes me feel nervous about the legal market all over again. Does anyone know if no offers were concentrated among those with certain practice area interests? I'd thought this year would be a good year in terms of offer rates overall.
