. Thanks guys. Obviously I am venting. On the upside I have been exposed to litigation at a few very large companies and "BIGLAW" firms I would never have been a part of had I gone on the trajectory I was expecting after law school. While I am doubtful as to what that does for my resume, I think it gives me a better idea of what is going on in terms of the changing landscape of the legal profession. That said, today was among the lows of the last year. It's hustle or die out there-- and I've been doing a lot of hustling-- hopefully it pays off soon.
