New York Law Journal
I am an eighth-year associate who graduated from a law school ranked around 25th. I am currently trying to get a job at one of the high-paying firms in Manhattan. I am frustrated because I have friends working at these firms who either a) went to schools of lower caliber or b) had grades equal to or worse than mine. (I have over a 3.0.) I have excellent credentials as a writer and was published in a law journal.
Incidentially, I called your recruiting office, and they would not even accept my resume.
What can I do to increase my chances of getting into a good firm and how do other, less-qualified people manage it . . .
