fwiw, I'm also a 1L at Hastings and everyone I know has a summer job. *shrug* Only one got his job through a "connection." I think it's a big exaggeration to suggest that "most" people are without jobs.
I must be in the slacker section then. That's good to hear that other people are having success. What search methods are you using? I have applied to every opening on Simplicity for 1Ls since about mid-February and only gotten one interview. I've also cold emailed a shit ton of firms offering to work for free.
What kind of jobs are you guys getting? Even the people I've talked to who are looking for public interest haven't had much luck.
Most people I know have court externships, and a couple are working as RAs. I think most people just sent application packets cold to the court. Sorry I can't be of more help!
