Maybe not a miracle, but certainly out of the ordinary: I was just a hair above median at a T14, secondary journal, no publications or ed board. I landed a firm VERY out of reach on strength of rec, and landed SDNY on strength of rec from the firm.

Want to revive this thread. Any miracle offers recently? As a lower T14 '14 grad who finished around median, I am crossing my fingers that I'll luck into one of these situations...

I think this is absolutely correct, but at least it's another year to learn stuff and make connections and gun for those jobs that don't have firm grade cut-offs.


This is such a secret guild conversation
what are those firms, GDC may be one?
