I'm not sure of any 2Ls without some offer, but I do know of two 3Ls who were no offered by their summer firms after (supposedly) a summer full of high praise and assurances that they were doing a fab job. It's kind of petrifying.
Reading this thread makes me so afraid for law school finals. I haven't had finals for 3 years now and I can be really lazy.
Be very scared. Not for the faint of heart, I'm afraid. I hate studying and was never a library person until I got here.
I have some friends at other law schools too and when they had their first semester of finals, they were all telling me, DON'T GO TO LAW SCHOOL!!!!!!! After finals, they were better about it though.
Oddly enough, my friends who are in law school were always encouraging me to apply when they were 1Ls, even though they were obviously stressed. They're clearly very good at hiding their neuroses.
I was a pretty good library person in UG, but I'll be foggy. If I make it through finals without crying publicly, I will consider it a win.
Ugh and I also know of someone who didn't get a job offer from her firm after supposedly having a good 2L summer with them. I think that's the worst.
