my sympathies. i wish the economy looked the way it did when we all started law school.
Quote from: tm. on December 24, 2008, 09:03:09 AMum, wow. Yeah. But hey, at least its not personal. Of about 120 firms I applied to (I know, I'm crazy), only 1 rejection has seemed to be about ME. The vast majority have simply said they aren't hiring 1Ls anymore.
Although to be fair, if you can't find anything to do 1L summer you may as well kiss most 2L summer and post-grad options goodbye as well, no?
I'm not having much luck finding unpaid work
I guess this can be flamed b/c it is basically me having a pity party for myself. But here goes. I am near the top 10% of my class at a T4 school and do not have a job yet. I am involved in moot court and the works. I just had a callback interview for a firm a week and a half ago. The interview with all three interviewers went very well. I just got a rejection letter from them, 1 day before Christmas. So I am bummed. I know it could be worse,and there are certainly lawyers and law students in this economy that are hurting worse than I am, but seriously could they have waited until after Christmas? So yeah, I'm bummed. If anyone else is in the same boat, feel free to vent.
So things are looking pretty grim.
