I don't know about you, but My Activity shows "0 Waiting List" for me.
I think all students first selected have to sign up first before wait lists role in. I was just wondering if anyone knew the date.

I see a lot of big offices in here (e.g., Queens, San Fran, etc.), which are undoubtedly very competitive. As long as you don't think you'd be unhappy at a small office with only a handful of attorneys, you might want to send some apps to some of them.
I'm open for winding up anywhere as long as im doing pd work but the thing with big offices is they hire more because of higher turnover, bigger hr budgets, etc. summering at a smaller office may not give you the chance to get hired by them in the immediate future if they don't foresee any openings. My first summer was with a well known and prestigious smaller office ~35. I'd go back for a second summer in a heartbeat, but I know they aren't hiring anyone next year because their budget got smashed, new hires had to take a paycut, and those who transferred out or planned to transfer out have already been accounted for. I with my supervisors agreement thought that although he/she wanted me back she thought hiring wise going to a different office was the best choice.
Idk just my two cents
