Make sure you tell them you are interested in litigation and elaborate based on your experiences (moot court, mock trial, clinic experience, etc.)

Also, one of the requirements it that I submit a transcript. I have my contacted my school and they have told me that it might take like a week for them to give me an official one. Would it be OK if I submitted an "unofficial" one with my application and then have the school send them my official one so that I can submit this asap?
I wasnt depressed until I tried finding a job. f**ck this *&^%.
I recommend the Volokh book...but not now. If you haven't start law school yet, don't prep. Take DCB's advice and read, read, read. Read for pleasure. Read fiction, read about things you're interested in. Not only will it help you increase your reading speed, but it's also a good way to glut yourself on something you probably won't have time to do for a good amount of time (a lot of people are surprised or complain about the fact they just don't have time to read anything they *want* to read during 1L).
Thanks, you've all been a great help (more so than my career services, I might add).
Just follow a basic cover letter format and add in a reason why you are applying to PDs and DAs (like, you have experience with them, you plan to pursue criminal law, etc.).
On week or three days, I'd call and let them know you've accepted another offer. If you have any personal connections at the firm/office, you may want to also call them and explain - you don't want to burn any bridges.
