Look at it this way, successful people with little debt will be successful anywhere, whether it be in law or some other field. However if you don't land biglaw, 6 figure debt will make success much tougher to attain, even for very high achievers who happen to miss the biglaw boat.
I just got done reading this thread and it's definitely scaring me a lot. I'm seriously considering just pulling out of my transfer decision to go to UM and just go back to my old school keeping my full ride (I haven't formally withdrawn yet) and just taking the $6K hit on expenses incurred moving to A2, etc. I mean, if people at CCN are having this tough of a time I question whether I'm going to get anywhere ITE with only grades from my old school (a t3).
well....you just went through OCI I guess. How was that?
Honestly, I have no idea. It seemed like a lot of firms weren't giving me a serious interview though. I had a lot where the firm just had me ask questions about them and wouldn't really ask much of anything about me. I found that irritating because it really does me no good for the firm to sell themselves to me if they aren't going to give me a callback. The first 3 interviews or so I just went with it, and then after that I literally started going off by saying "well on your website it says you are looking for XYZ, here's how I meet XYZ, now what additional attributes and qualities are you looking for in a successful candidate," followed by me answering with how I met those attributes as well.
The shitty thing was I only had 11 interviews scheduled to begin with, and 5 were firms that required a really high GPA in the past. I filled in on a bunch of lists and ended up with around 23 interviews total, but a lot of those ended up being really high GPA firms as well since it seemed like no one bid on anything that averaged more then a 3.4 GPA on the GPA correlation chart.
So far I had 2 rejections (out of my original 11, which all the interviews I got in my target market) and no callbacks.
