For those getting these ding emails, to what extent do we think they’re coming because the firm actually doesn’t have the capacity to hire at the office to which you’re applying and just wants to make it seem like you’re not good enough to make themselves look better? In other words, isn’t it arguably to the firm’s advantage to say on their site and NALP that they will hire former clerks (ie that they’re successful enough that they have the bandwidth $$ to do so), even in a situation where they aren’t?
