I think one of the 2L Sears Prize winners worked at DPW (I am not 100% sure but I know it was a NYC V5 and not WLRK). I can think of other examples but this seems to prove the point well enough.
2L Sears doesn't count. No idea why you brought it up.
About Ropes, it's the best firm in Boston and so if the person wanted to work in Boston then that was his or her best option. That was his/her Wachtell.
I think by Jenner you mean DC. Even then there are better firms in DC. That example may prove the point that perfect grades don't guarantee anything. But then we don't really know. Jenner DC may have offered some unique opportunities given that person's preferences.
I mean, in the context of NYC Wachtell and others, think about it. Nobody is stupid enough to decide to work the same hours but get paid less.
Having perfect grades lets you do anything you want unless you are a poor interviewer. You all know this.
Nah, the better explanation is that culture matters and firms aren't fungible. But you don't get that because you're clearly a dick.
And also a retard, if 2L Sears "doesn't count."
"Doesn't count" in the sense that the question was about "no.1 at Harvard." Obviously you cannot claim you are number 1 when many folks were checked out. This is frankly a retarded thread and I replied because I had plenty of time. What a bunch of sick cunts.
Wow get a grip dude
