summer job at NYC law firms
« on: February 22, 2006, 02:21:03 AM »
Hi, I'm a 1L with a 3.18 GPA at a Tier 2 school. I know it is really late to apply now, but I didn't know we were supposed to apply this soon. This whole time, I thought we were supposed to apply after our 2nd semester grades were out. At this point, I am frustrated and don't know where to start applying. I already went to the career center at my school but nothing is left for 1Ls. What are my chances of getting any job at a big or med-size firm in NYC? What about corporate law firms? Where's the best place to start looking?

Generally, smaller firms have later deadlines for summer jobs, because it's harder for them to judge what their needs are going to be for the summer several months out.
