Yeah sure, grades might be relevant if deciding between two equal candidates

But I'd wager that the practice area and sector-experience of a candidate, taken together with the reputation of his superiors/partners, and most importantly his/her contribution to the team and the ability to run (and even lead, depending on seniority) a deal/a case/project is far more important than fkin grades and book prizes.

Unless you're in litigation lol. Then again, I'd say that the reputation you gain based on the name you make for yourself as so and so's right hand man in the courtroom or boardroom- is what gets you through to better firms.
