Basically, would you need a Bill Clinton-esque interview to overcome your transcript? Or would even that fall short? Can you sort of reverse yield-protect your way in (i.e., they know as well as you do that you're probably not competitive for e.g., CSM).
I'm not sure what you're going for here.
With your grades, I think your first, second and last priority should be to make sure that you at least come out with one market-paying offer. Instead, in what I'm pretty sure were your previous posts, you seemed fixated on bidding for firms that were "sufficiently prestigious" for the reason of having the people you know not thinking that you screwed up 1L/EIP. Since you've only posted a partial bidlist, I can't tell for sure whether this prestige fixation led to you being overly aggressive with your bids. I hope it didn't.
To your current question: what does it matter? Your list of interviews are basically set, and you should be hustling like crazy with every shot you get in the hopes that something sticks. Why would you even think about "reverse yield-protecting" yourself as if it matters what an individual law firm thinks about you as long as you get an offer somewhere else
I think a casual HLS '17 poster needs to do very
little guesswork to figure out who you are IRL. You seem like a fundamentally good dude and I'm rooting for you. Stop being obsessed with what I think, and what the rest of your peers think, and just do the best for yourself. Regardless of outcome, the respect you're looking for will naturally follow.
