You have to be in it to win it. Just like getting a zero on an assignment makes snagging an “A” in the class unlikely, a zero score in any of the four A-List metrics makes landing on the A-List essentially impossible.

The firm did not participate in the survey in 2012, so it received an associate satisfaction score of zero in calculations for the 2013 A-List. In 2013 the firm did participate in the survey, and even though it received a relatively low score of 126, that was enough to secure it a spot on the 2014 A-List.
