If you get any response at all, it's guaranteed to be a lie (the only possible response that's even vaguely true is that their firm gets many more qualified applicants than they have spots for). And if by some miracle someone actually told you the truth, which is that you have mediocre grades from mediocre schools and/or you're not a particularly interesting or likeable person, what is it that you expect to do with that information?

What if we changed this question up a bit? What if the question wasn't focused on "how can I do better for another firm's interview" but rather "I'm not ready to give up yet. I'm capable of working for you and I'm prepared to contact you next April when you're looking for 3Ls at T6 schools. And I'm going to bust my ass to get your recognition." And, why not add onto that: "what do you need me to do to ensure that you smile the next time you see me?"

Is there merit in this?

This has to be flame.
