I meant, are you a 5 hitting on an 8.5? Or are you an 8 hitting on an 8.5?

She didn't necessarily reject you because you overreached. She might just not be interested in dating right now, not interested in dating fellow students, etc. You couldn't have predicted those factors before going for it, but you probably could've predicted the rejection in the situation where you were aiming way out of your league.

note: excuse my constant usage of quotation marks

my numbers are high, got interview and callback, no-offer'd


oh so this wasnt a straight up rejection, but after an interview and callback? im guessing no pre-job perks where the firm tries to woo you. sry about the rejection then, in this tough economy, firms are really cutting back on offers to just try and get those top prospects, tho imo your numbers (8ish) sound pretty good for this particular firm

in these early interviewing stages, you should really try to get as many callbacks and interviews as you can so you can at least get 1 offer, if you badly want biglaw right now

5 points would be awarded to you in my gunner league:

1) no, 2) no, 3) no, 4) 2 years, 5) 5 years, 6) no, 7) bisexual, eight) school

Okay, then you have nothing to feel bad about for the rejection.

perhaps she was interviewing with other firms and was very close to accepting an offer from one of them.

Sorry dude....however, you got to run tighter game...8's (regardless of ls grades) should be locking up 8.5 girls....could have just been a bad day though. Get up, brush yourself off and go get a 5 or 6 to make your feel better

.....The post above is a joke, I would only objectify women like this in the real world and feel awkward doing it in a law school internet forum
