Remember that this thread will serve as a valuable resource for the Class of 2017 when they are deciding among offers, so be detailed. It's also important to remember that the firm doesn't actually care about you. It's recruiting for next year.
And most importantly, with regard to the "should I wear it to class???" debate, never forget:

RIGOROUS ANALYTICAL CONCLUSION BASED ON PRINCIPALS OF ECONOMIC ANALYSIS: Oh my god I hate everyone on this planet. Reading TLS literally doubles the number of times I pray for death every day.
