Networking, man. Grades are all well & good but you've got to make some contacts. I have a marginal GPA at a T3 but I worked my butt off joining groups. I am a part time evening student, so I only have 6 full credits at school, but I've landed a job as a law clerk for a city making $16 or so an hour because of 'who I know'. I would HIGHLY recommend chatting up your profs, your school's staff, and looking up area firms with alumni from your school. Work the people you know.
