Got emails from two District Court judges that they wouldn't be hiring interns... I still have two judges that haven't gotten back to me. There's a big PI/Gov event at our school in early Febuary. I'd really like to get something there.
Good things about me: 4.0 (A in legal writing, but it feels good to write on the resume haha), good interviewer, good extracurriculars in LS
Bad things: super generic undergrad, no latin honors, no WE, will be hard to differentiate myself through my resume.
I hate cover letters more than anything else in the universe.

Was a bit gutsy and submitted my final memo as a writing sample even though it hasn't been graded yet. Not sure how a state court judicial internship compares with a federal one with regard to competition, prestige, etc., but I'll be happy with any positive responses.
Now its on to firms. I'm probably a bit behind with regard to firm applications, but I'd assume they wait until after grades to do hiring anyway, so maybe I'll get lucky and at least get a look.
You can really send out this many apps before grades?
They'll give you interviews just based on your school, or do they wait for grades but you get looked at first?
I spoke to my state's AG office and they said send in everything now and supplement with your transcript later.
