Me ... and almost everyone I know at school! lol
I'm looking for anything. I had two great interviews on Friday, though. (One for a firm and one for more of a public interest type job).
I go to a lower tier 1 / higher tier 2 - small school in a medium sized city.
I hear most everyone will end up with SOME kind of law job by the time May/June rolls around. Nobody seems incredibly worried. We're just applying places and having interviews until we get offers!
I'm a 1L, too.
I'd say if someone is bad at writing there are resources they can use that don't cost 1500 ... go to college professors, writing centers at school, people on this board, friends, family, colleagues, supervisors.
I mean, come on ...
I've heard that MD's is pretty easy, though I bet there are some mid-western states that are probably a breeze as they are desperate to get attorneys in-state.
I'm not really sure what you think of the midwest, but Ohio's bar is known to be a tough one.
Oh wait ... except I totally forgot we take it while riding cows, b/c you know ... here in the "midwest" there aren't many people.

I slacked off ... but I still kept my 3.8. The key is how easy your last semester/quarter is. I took mostly easy classes w/ professors who (mostly) knew me and didn't care that I wasn't really doing much work. I think I did maybe 3 hours of hw TOPS a week my last quarter of undergrad. It. Was. Wonderful. And I really miss it now ... lol!
Yeah ... I guess "cold" resume sending to places that may or may not be hiring (or are not really looking at 1L's, etc.) might be why ...
The two interview offers I got were from people I met at a job fair. I just feel like our school really tries to help us ... we all have individual meetings to talk with the career development people. We have job fairs. They make postings every day about job opportunities, etc.
Every 1L I know ... except for I think 3 (and 2 of them are doing out-of-the country human rights things) are jobless right now ... we have plenty of time. Lots of firms/places haven't even started hiring yet. The career people keep sending out new places every day. Some of us are just picky on location or type (for me - location).
I don't understand the whole "applying to TONS" of places. I just started applying a little over a week ago ... 5 places so far, and I've had 2 interview offers.
Of course, I'm not banking on it, but I will be applying to more places/opportunities each week probably.
Why are people saying they apply to 100-200 places and get no offers? o.0
It seems strange that you have a 3.1 and are on dean's list and honor roll.
