[Edit - I started this thread as a post regarding my individual situation, but Botbot posted a wonderful response that anyone could use, so I decided to open the thread up to any and all 2L job search questions or advice. Good luck to everyone with your searches!]
Grades are out, and Bears is ballpark-ish top 30-40% 1L at BU Law. Not the smartest person in the class, but certainly smarter than the average Bears.
As LSD gunners know, BU is a T20 school, so it's not too bad. Bears won't know if bears wrote onto law review or journal for at least a month. Bears also won't know his moot court status until the middle of 2L year. Bears has a lot of litigation experience as a paralegal at V10 firms and prestigious government agencies. Bears has a summer job at a prestigious government agency right now.
Bears is starting to prepare for OCI and the hiring season. Bears' goal is to litigate at a reasonably high level and pay off his student loans. Bears wants to avoid ID work and temping if at all possible, and he is willing to do practically anything to make that happen.
Primarily, Bears plans to target the market between NYC, Boston and Albany. Bears would also like to try to get a gig in Florida becuause Bears is a fan of pina coladas and enticing female bears from Cuba.
Bears needs your advice! What would you do if you were a Bears?
