I am about top 10% at UIUC, looking to work anywhere, but preferably at a law firm(size doesn't matter) and be paid.
I have sent out about 3 or 4 applications so far (I got these from career service's website). What else should I do now? Urbana is a tiny town and they only have tiny firms that probably have no need for 1L summer associate. Should I mass mail all the firms on NALP that hire 1L?
I don't want to volunteer my time in LA for some public interests group, I have no desire to work PI and can't afford to pay rent at 2 places while not making money.
I am open to government work if they pay me.
