anyone else know anything or have any opinions?

Miserable hours, miserable people.

But you will get some amazing trial experience very very early.

I do have 2 years work experience in finance and I am targeting NC, primarily Charlotte, which is supposed to be the second biggest financial center in the states. I thought it would be a good match, lol.

In a market like Charlotte, your ties to the city are WAY WAY more important than your academic or work background. If you aren't from there, don't have family there, or don't have a wife from there, they will basically just write you off and move on.

On a side note: does anyone actually take an attorney up on their offer to "answer any questions" you have later on?  I usually just send my thank you and that's the last contact I have with the firm til I get a decision...

I did once, but I had a legitimate question that I wanted to follow up on. I don't see any point to making up some questions just for the sake of asking questions. Their evaluation is going to be done too soon for it to matter.

I would just drop the recruiting girl an email saying you wanted to follow up and reaffirm your interest. No need to send snail mail...ever.

Just send a thank you email to the recruiting coordinator, and ask them to pass along your thanks to the attorneys. The only real point is to get a thank you letter in your file, and this accomplishes that without the risk of typos/wrong names/etc.

Terrible idea.  The recruiting coordinator will think you are lazy and useless.   It takes five minutes to email everyone and say thanks. 

O RLY? I guess the Career office at my top 6 school and several other top schools are wrong then.

Get your head out of your ass. Thanking the attorneys individually has zero upside and tons of downside. Some well written thank you note won't change the fact that you have bad grades from a bad school and interview like a socially awkward fucktard.
