Which markets are these?



Don't want to divulge too much, as I am still waiting for offers, but think south.

I doubt one more person in the mass mailing pool would dilute your chances. But fair point.

I think a big reason I struck out is because I only wanted CA...and NY (even though I have no NY ties). CA is just bad right now.

Your friends either killed it, or are amazing interviewers, or wanted IP, or had some kind of substantive work experience. SF is in terrible shape.

I am probably feeling just as bad as you are right now, if not worse.

Working at a big firm has always been my dream. It's pretty depressing to know I probably will never get that chance.


i'm feeling the same, my friends. pretty killer to self-confidence...

Big firms hire clerks sometimes. Use that as motivation to work hard this year.
