If you have real relationships with actually important people, it might. Otherwise it probably helps as much as any other average WE.

Only if you find yourself a rabbi within the firm that has the juice to hire you back and is willing to use it.

If you're the janitor it probably won't help...can someone up the pic of the janitor from scrubs, I'm on my phone, so it difficult.

you'll need to secure the biglaw position long before you're done with law school.

It might be a small plus, but if you don't have the grades and/or don't go to a target school you will be SOL.

I'm pretty sure students from lower T1 to TT aren't in a good position to land biglaw in the first place.
