I think I got dinged by them in a 3 word email, but I'm not sure. I sent the recruiter an email reiterating my interest in Cooley and practically begging for an interview, but all I got in return was "Cooley story bro".

A recruiter (NY) emailed me yesterday to ask for my transcript. An associate I reached out to forwarded my resume to the recruiter a month or so ago.
