Seriously. I just can't believe how bad the litigation market is. Is anybody else having better luck that doesn't have obscene credentials?
I really thought HYS + decent lit summer and clinic experience + clerkship would be a golden ticket. Newp.
I don't mean this as criticism at all, but I think there aren't a lot of consistent rules about post-clerkship hiring, and it's still much too early to worry. Timelines are all over the place - it's not like OCI. I get that it's agonizing, but try not to despair yet.
I don't see it as criticism at all. Thank you! It's just a new experience, and the rejections are tedious. Always helpful to get feedback from people who aren't currently mired in it.
