Is anyone willing to say the best grade profile they know who struck out (and if so, which market they bid on or anything else potentially relevant to the strike out happening)?

Amen to this! Feel so greatful to not have been shut out of the legal markets I wanted just because of my grades!


+1 I am grateful everyday.

So grateful.



As long as we are making requests, and I realize some of these are facetious, could some of you who feel this way expound on generally what grades you had and what you ended up with?

5H 5P, bid exclusively DC. Did 29 screeners, got 7 cbs. Did 5 cbs, got 3 offers. None of the cbs were from the very top DC firms. I'm feeling good but not overly thrilled with how it all turned out.

Anybody else have info on this? Grades/Results are helpful even if the info is second hand!

I relied on this forum quite heavily before EIP, so I feel like I should contribute:

6H/4P; strong interviewer; limited, but relevant, work experience.

24 EIP interviews, 20 callbacks. Bid NY and multiple other markets (against the wisdom of OCS).

Received offers from all of the firms I wanted in NY and did quite well in the other markets despite having no ties whatsoever. Ending up at a V5 that is well-suited to my career goals.

In my case, I believe identical results would have been achievable with 4H/6P. In general, I feel like people did really well, and many outperformed their own expectations. Also, now that this is all over, I believe the top 10 or 15 firms are generally indistinguishable in terms of the quality of candidate they attract, practice area strengths and exit options.

I had 6 Hs and primarily targeted D.C. I was offered 18 CBs and took 9. I got 8 offers and ultimately went with one of the top native D.C. firms. Prior to EIP, I would rate my interviewing skills as decent. They probably improved a bit over the course of EIP. Additionally, no relevant WE.

Everyone I knew did really well and basically got what they wanted.
