I am starting school at UK in August, and I hope to continue to practice law in Lexington. I have begun researching firms in the area, and I have found three particular firms that interest me the most. All three of these firms hire 1Ls for summer, and they all hire a majority of their associates from UK. They also conduct 1L OCIs at UK.
I am curious as to whether there is anything in particular that I can do to ensure that I interview with these firms when 1L OCIs come around. I understand that the main thing I can do is keep my grades up and get on Law Review. But is this enough? Is the interview process so reliant on numbers that if I get good grades, I should get an interview, or is there anything I can do to make myself more attractive to each particular firm? I'm posting this here because I'm guessing most of you posting in this board is already looking at/ going through the process.
Thanks for any helpful responses.
