I don't have any great tips or anything; it really just should have been a much more smooth process for me.

And Bears, I'm sure you did nothing wrong.

It was a little harder for me, because I am targeting non-vault firms with a summer program, and I wanted to focus on non-NALP firms (although I did include non-Vault firms that were on NALP).  I hadn't heard of "Chambers" and just used Martindale.

NALP is frequently wrong on the recruiting coordinator name/e-mail, so you have to go to the individual firm's website for every firm.  For smaller firms, I made an effort to try and find the practice area that was likely to need the most help, and I crafted my resume/cover letters a little differently with the mail merge script.

And, printing everything out was a 25 hour affair, somehow.  That part sucked.

Holy poo! I need to start printing!

Also, how did you know whether a small firm was even hiring? It seems like most small firms don't have summer programs. :(

Not much new here. Just trying to get the new place livable. How about you?

And, windsor.

I gotta run, but I'll be back here tomorrow and we'll chat it up. Why are you so sure about windsor? It seems that only really cool people or giant nerds wear it. I'd like to be the former, but I might be the latter....

Ono I think I have caught it.  :'( :'( :'(

What's up IrrX? Tell me - do you prefer windsor knots or 4inhands?

OMG I am so bored! HALP!!!

Also, why are people using punctuation 'tars here?

Why have punctuation 'tars spread to LSD? :(

What took so long? I have a complete NYC litigation mail merge ready to go - between NALP, Vault and Chambers it only took me like 6 hours to do (without the printing). Am I doing something wrong?

$350?!  ??? :o ??? :o

How did you pull this off? Watermarked paper/envelopes at staples for $5-10 per 100; stamps for like 40c. each... I anticipate maybe $200 tops for the whole mass mail.

Different firms seem to require different things -

All firms ask for Resume + Cover Letter

Some ask for transcript

Some ask for UGrad transcript

Some ask for writing sample

Some ask for a combination of the above.

Is it an autoding if you don't include some of the above materials if asked? It would be very difficult to mass-mail firms if I have to individually prepare every packet with different items. Advice?
