Strange V10 Rejection

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Sep 08, 2012 12:17 pm

Snail mail from the recruiter. Signed.

Clear rejection but at the end it said "We are not inviting you for further interviews at this time but we would be very interested in talking to you about your future plans next fall."

Could that be boilerplate? Got it right after interviewing, didn't really think about it much but curious about what people think.

likely for data purposes. They usually ask that when you reject their offer. Weird that you got it after a rejection but probably asked for the same reasons.

It's boilerplate. Many firms' form rejection letters say to keep them in mind for next year.

Thanks, didn't think so. Just thought I should check.

I thought every rejection letter said this?

Most of my higher ranked rejections were by email and not from the recruiter. They said things like "We're sure that with your impressive credentials you will go on to a long and rewarding legal career."

I assume it was random odds that I didn't get more "We'd be interested in talking to you next year..." rejections. It's probably data collection, as an earlier poster said...

Not sure there's really any point to keeping this thread alive after this, though. Obviously, no one else had this question.

Pretty sure Cravath's screener rejections contained language essentially saying please apply after 3L. These things are pretty standard.

Most 1L summer SA inquiries get this, but since 3L oci is a flame, most 2L SA dings do not.
