Probably means that your screening was just a resume drop. You're right in that associates are drones, without any real authority. Unless you do something spectacular (like dropping your pants during the session), nothing they say will influence the hiring committee.
Wait, so are you saying my pre-select interview was meaningless? Why would they schedule an interview for nothing, then? I thought that if you got a pre-select interview, you can assume the firm is genuinely interested in you because they don't need to fill up any # of interview slots at PLIP.
PR. Don't want to be that top law firm not interviewing tons of kids at PLIP.
Just saying that we all shouldn't read so much getting PS's at PLIP. It may seem a bit better, because they did an initial resume check, but in the end, they have to do another. The screener process is just to weed out the weirdo's or the clueless.
Reading past blots, I've concluded that this is still a crap-shoot, and anything can happen (pple w/ 24 PS's get one a CB or 2 and ppl w/ 2 PS's get 2 CB's, resulting in 2-Offers. Bottom line is to relax and grind through the process; don't be too discouraged by no (or little) progress, and don't be overjoyed or cocky with any development, no matter how cheery.
Finally, you can see why the fact that only associates ran the screening seems to indicate that your resume will unfdergo a second check before you get a cb or ding.
