No problem. Just act like an associate and cut into the line. Bet no one has the balls to ask you.

Hey at least you don't have to put heels back on again tomorrow. I'm already dreading it!

I made the mistake of sitting down. Now I don't want to go out :|

A black bowtie?! I thought I was the only person wearing a bowtie tonight. But no, it was not me, mine was not black.

So we just need to write thank you letters to our screening interviewers? I didn't think they were needed for screeners?

I got a weird one that I'm pretty sure I didn't answer well. It was something like "can we answer any questions about how our firm compares to other firms in any areas?" I don't even remember what I said...man.

I think I might have gotten the "why our firm" variation in every interview.

Had an interviewer ask me why my GPA dropped a tenth of a point. Bullshitted some answer and pointed out how my legal writing grade improved from pretty good to really really good.

I find it slightly humorous that you're all sitting in the same hotel messaging each other on TLS

Most of mine were okay, but surprising. I ended up talking about ethnic food, world history, shit that makes you forget that it's an IP fair, and then, WHAM, they hit you with, "how does out firm fit in your plans for the next 10 years?" Otherwise, okay.

For those of you first time in Chicago, Gino's East's sausage petty pizza is to die for. And the best part is they deliver, if you are too lazy to walk a few blocks.

If you guys were talking about nyc mb then you might be right. Last yeara i had a God awful interview with them, I literally mumbled for 20 seconds. They seemed totally uninterested. I wrote it off. Then I got a CB. I'm pretty sure it's a glorified resume drop.
