They added that 95% of that group (top 10-15% of same sub 50 school) get picked up for "big law", with the other 5% going on to clerkships. So, if you, as a TLSer, have dreams of biglaw, and think you can crack the top 10-15% of a sub 50 school, there's HOPE. Consider the critics and possibilities, but don't let the nay-sayers get you down!
I'm wondering why you had to clarify that this was a "personal" friend? as opposed to a friend that you dont know?
Anyway this post fails. I dont care if your personal friend - who works in the mail room for all we know - says otherwise.
