I think it can possibly work against you, if you took a pro-Palestinian stance, depending on the firm. During 2L, I went through the OCI process, and had many in-firm interviews. One firm told me they were going to offer me the job (I know a violation of the Rules). On offer call day I received no offer from them. I was fortunate that another firm I was interested in offered me a job, but I called a partner at the first firm to ask what happened. It was a little like pulling teeth to get a straight answer from him, but I pressed him and finally he told me they had Googled my name and some people on the hiring committee had a problem because I had signed a petition condemning anti BDS legislation in some American states.
So I made my deposit on Friday evening because silly me thought that I had already made it on Tuesday. By luck I checked my online banking and realized my money had not gone through(!!!).
anyways, do you think it should be okay? Or do they count payment received date instead? I even emailed them proof that my payment had been done on Friday.
I think there are a number of arguments that can be made against raising tuition, but the classic student advocacy response of "costs should be going down!" just really doesn't fit in these circumstances.
