I struck out at OCI, had mediocre grades, and am now 4 years out (2-year DJ clerk after working a meaningless gov't job before).
This thread has been simultaneously relieving and stressful. No one seems to be hiring for entry/junior level people based on my anecdotal research. So many friends at big law firms and not a single one has an office that is hiring anyone for this fall. At this point I'm just starting to be glad I'm not biglawcuzofdebt or bust.
