Stole Your Nose! has some good advice, especially about sending out adequate applications. As a 1L, I sent out over 100 letters and got about 10 interviews.

I had a question, I asked it. Go F&#* yourself vap.
It was a good question, too, IMO.
Honestly, I think you guys are being over-optimistic about this guy's chances of landing a big firm through NALP and such, at a T2, in this economy. I would go for personal connections. These firms get literally hundreds of resumes. What special reason to they have to hire him?
i have my doubts as to whether there will be much BIGLAW! 1L hiring at even the top schools this year.
We'll see how happy you are with Tulane when your "hometown" lands you no jobs if you aren't in the top of your class.That's the reality of the legal profession, whether you choose to see it or remain delusional is up to you.
