It's a clerkship that I hands down had no chance in hell at had I not transferred, and it's a court that was one of my top picks (oddly enough). Pay is actually pretty good for a clerkship as well. All in all, I'm pretty happy about how things worked out (and I'm fairly certain this clerkship will lead to something good).

I guess it might be time for a moniker change :)


can we all go back in time and erase this entire thread? we are all dumber for having read it.

Congrats - glad it worked out.

Huge congrats. Sounds like you earned it.



Thanks!

Why do you say that?... I think this thread kind of reflects how truly brutal it is out there as a transfer. When I transferred 1.5 years ago now, I recall the general thought was that if you make it into any t14 (including GULC) as a transfer, you are pretty much guaranteed biglaw out of OCI, and it doesn't even matter if the firms in the market you are now aiming for didn't recruit at your old school. People started getting a little jittery when they saw the number of employers recruiting at GULC, but then that went away when they saw that the numbers were really low at all t14s.

I say it because it's funny and also because your whole thread was about your bad experience which turned out to be not so bad.

This sage statement was completely worth bumping this thread that was last posted on a few weeks ago. You, sir, win the internet.
