Stigma and Universities

It has to be more than a mere coincidence that every person I know who got a seasonal clerkship fails to get a priority placement in the law firm.

And I thought getting a seasonal was 80% guaranteeing you a graduate position.

I fail to understand why you won't be selected after, tireless efforts of working your arse of, chatting up staff, and even in some circumstances writing praise after praise of the firm in careers guides to help recruit to the firm even smarter people in future years.

I just fail to see the justice. Has it got anything to do with the name of uni? I wonder.

Logically it doesn't. Cos they did take us for seasonal clerkship position. But it still makes me ponder.
