For the most part, people won’t remember your grades or what you said and did, but they’ll remember how you made them feel. No one is really going to hold it against you if you made a self-aggrandizing post that one time, but there are so many great lawyers out there that people can pick and choose who they want to work with for reasons a lot more arbitrary than whether someone makes obnoxious social media posts (and they do, all the time). Some of those people who struck out this recruit will be able to refer work to you or act as your client a lot sooner than you’d expect, so I’d say it can’t hurt to be excessively considerate. But sure, if you don’t need or want any business from psychologically broken sore losers anyway, then I guess you can post whatever you want and it doesn't really matter
You're absolutely right! I sent an email asking about the rolling basis and first come first serve and this is the response I received:
"Thank you for your interest in our program. Neither is really true - we have begun assessing files, but are aware of the number of applications we normally receive, and will not over-admit to the point where later applications (submitted at the end of the month) will be prejudiced."
Hope this helps for anyone who had similar concerns!
