Yeah

Yup. Totally hosed the math on my first case.

Yeah it can be sub par if you showed promise in the PEI. I wouldn’t say you can bomb it though

I had subpar cases in Round 1 and I was given another chance at round 1 (like a tie breaker) but not officially moved to round 2. Then I didn’t make it any further.

Depends on the office and their recruiting targets

Yes - keep fighting!!

Ladies, I’ve noticed (pre-covid) that when men introduced each other or even when they enter the room they always shake hands with each other - even if they’ve known them/worked with them for months. But for myself, I may get a handshake on first day but never again. And I find it annoying like do you not think of me as your equal or do you think because I’m a woman I want a hug?? Has anyone else noticed this, or am I taking this the wrong way?

He is now coming back to me and saying my current firm will match the salary, offer better hours, better title, etc. Needless to say, I’m torn. How bad is it to walk back on an accepted offer? We are in a smaller legal market.
