Well, it's officially mid-November, and I got nothing for next summer. I wanted to do government work, but nothing I applied to panned out. I applied to one firm relatively late in the game (October), had an awesome call-back, but I have yet to hear anything from them (they're waiting to see who accepts the offers they already have out, so it may be a while). I'm at a top tier school, but it's towards the bottom of the tier. My GPA is top 50, but barely. I'm on a secondary journal, my note is getting published, and I'm on Moot Court.
My question is, what do I do now? I'm guessing it's too late to apply to most firms, but is it worth a shot anyways? What about smaller firms - how do I even find those? Are they even still hiring? How about government jobs with less prestigious agencies? I'd even take a volunteer gig if it would turn into an interesting paying job after graduation. I'd really appreciate any guidance anyone has on this...I feel like I've maxed out my opportunities.
