I understand I shot my credibility in earlier posts, but the logic is that in 2009, the firms that rescinded 3L's got a lot of slack. Dechert never made the same corrections those firms did, and have made the same mistakes repeatedly. What they found is it's easier to do it after the people start. It's a lot of salary to bite so 7 months is rare. I'm saying 3-4 months. I get there's bitterness and anger in my posts, but not one thing I said in any post has been proven wrong and almost all of them have been proven right.
I realize that part of groupthink is making an ad hominem attack at the person providing any atypical description. I don't care about that. My hope is that a family that would otherwise not have bread on the table in a year from now will because they read this post. Instead, that spot would be taken by someone who would not have had a job anyway and came into it viewing it as a week-to-week gig as they should. I don't care if you attack my credibility. I only care about doing the right thing. i realize everything I said has been proven wrong, and Dechert has never hired any first years ever. The first years in the ATL article didn't exist because there is a big scheme to troll Dechert.
Again, it's not news. It happens repeatedly. Generally, you don't worry about it because you're told that there was 1 horror story or that 10% of a given class was just terrible. This is more a case of one first year probably breaking standard protocol than a "omg first years fired". If you want evidence, what evidence would you like? I will give whatever evidence I can reasonably give. I have not spread any misinformation, and while some of it may be impacted by being personally upset, no objective fact I have given has been incorrect in any way, shape or form. Moreover, my intent in giving these facts has not been anger. It has sincerely and honestly been a desire to help people, because this has a family wide impact and when you have one company not playing by the same moral code, you have wide scale social harm that can be prevented by simply spreading awareness.
