I go to one of the better top 25 caliber law schools (urban, coastal, in a regular year puts a little more than third of its class in biglaw through OCI).
I am in the top 20% of my class and on Law Review. So far, I have 17 interviews lined up through OCI, all pre-screened. Unfortunately, I came up empty in DC, a city to which I have a connection and have always wanted to work.
Is it too late to start mass-mailing firms in DC asking for interviews? Even if it isn't too late, is it a productive use of my time given all the interviews I have to prepare for? I get conflicting answers on this. Finally (I can't resist asking this), how likely am I to come away with something resembling a V100 job? I know all bets are off this year.
