Q: I read your response to the question from the associate who stated that he had a 50-50 chance of making partner. My only issue with your response is that I think it is dangerous to put any faith in “guarantees” of making partner two years from the date of the statement. Don’t you?

Dear Faithful: Um, yes, I surely do. In fact, not only is it dangerous to put faith in those guarantees, I think you have to be in la-la-land to believe in guarantees of partnership at all, especially those made so far from the election date.
