QI’m a second year at a good second-tier school (if that’s possible). I’m in the top 40% of my class. What are my odds of getting a job at a firm like Cravath?
AZero. So stop even thinking about it. You’re the skinny high school geek with pimples working at McDonald’s. Cravath is Gisele. Do the math. But the good news is, there are still lots of jobs within your grasp. Focus on pursuing those. In other words, try to date the cute gal in your Evidence class—not the supermodel dating the NFL quarterback.
