I just got dinged from my first potential employer. Which kind of sucks since I was in the final 10 candidates but was still not offered a fellowship. It was my strongest series of interviews. That means I have two completed (eh) interviews which I'm waiting to hear back on, plus two more final interviews awaiting. . .potentially. . .if I can afford to fly out and take them. Which I suppose I must somehow afford. So we'll see how much the much vaunted CJC reputation counts. Thus far it's zero. Or perhaps that's Georgetown.
Oh wait - and in series of sure to be uplifting moments, when clinic begins I will now get to hear a litany of all my clinic classmates who have already found jobs, to which there will be polite applause. How exciting and motivating for me.
Sheesh. Off to read (literally) 16 cases for classes tomorrow, and prep a clinic exercise. Rumors swirl that the clinic will be grading on a first year curve. That'll be fun explaining to potential employers if I'm jobless, doing contract work, while trying to find a defender position somewhere.
Some days it's hard to bother.
