This. I had the same thing happen to me last year. Interview, callback, great feedback and then rejection. Kept in touch with the firm and just accepted an offer from them for next summer. Those connections you made, and those people that liked you will remember that they liked you. Keep in touch with them; you never know what life will throw your way.

Though the point of networking is well taken, that's about all it has going for it.



Firms in the market I am located in tend to have pretty big 1L summer programs though.

Yea, I think "lateraling" from nothing is a litttttle different.
