How does V5 work for YLS kids? @ HLS recruiters apparently count the # of H's you have, but does that work for YLS?
I met a YLS alum who said that when he went there in the early 00s, a small % of students had all Hs, then 10% or so had around half Hs half Ps, and that's it for Hs.
If you bid for WLRK, for example, does being @ YLS help you significantly more than if you had been in a similar class rank @ HLS?
I did choose YLS over HLS. I won't confess to know the inner-workings of firm recruitment, but it bears mentioning that at YLS your first semester is entirely ungraded. (I'm not sure if the same is true at HLS (which only moved to the H/P system some time after I'd already started at YLS).) The reason for bringing this up is that at OCI firms will only have one semester of graded class (e.g., four grades or whatever) to review. So I don't think there's as much value in "counting the H's" as there might be if you had two "graded" semesters to go on. All that said, I do think it helps to have at least one H among those graded classes to show the very top firms -- especially if the H is in a business law related class (bus orgs, securities law, etc.). As to your second point, again there's no such thing as a class rank -- there are literally only four grades (and often less than that, as many people will take a clinic or other ungraded class). Apologies if this isn't that helpful of an answer.

I've never played a round of golf in my life.
