I'm currently a rising 2l attending an upper T2 in Philadelphia. While I dreamed of being in the top 10, 25, or 33%, it was not in the cards (right now I'm at the median). While NALP and OCI have tons of info on BIG LAW, I have found little to no resources on sending out mailings/applying to/ or obtaining Summer Associtaships with Midsized to Small Firms. I realize my grades will hurt me but I have plenty of WE. I'm not looking to make 6 figures, anything above $55,000 will be fine for my first few years. How do I find the firms to apply to (I'm thinking family law) and what can I do to standout? I love lawschool but would dread not working as a lawyer after my three year investment.
