My apologies!! I mistyped it hahaha my GPA is an 83.2%. I felt super good about my PS because I’ve done a lot of work with EDI in my community and talked about my interest in criminal law, but I guess it wasn’t enough :(.
I’ve long (and vocally) thought the law school obsession with keeping quiet about your career successes was a foolish and performative exercise designed to protect the delicate egos of law students. Law students, despite essentially all identifying as “type A” personalities, are deeply insecure and terrified others will be better than them at... well, anything. I think people shouldn’t be afraid to ask how others did in the recruit or share their own experiences one-on-one.
With that said, @easttowest is right about publicizing your successes. If your accomplishment is an accomplishment, people will find out about it. I know everyone in my class that got a job I think is remotely interesting. There’s no need to post about it on LinkedIn the day you secure it, and, to be honest, I assume those who do are themselves insecure and in need of validation.
Humblebrag by updating your LinkedIn profile when you start your new gig like the rest of us.
For the FC, the judges rank their candidates and the most senior judges get to pick from the pool of candidates first and select their top choice (or the next preferred candidates if their top choices have been selected). The SCC is the same idea with a slightly different process. I wouldn't panic, all the offers may not have gone out.
