This would be for summer before 3L. 1Ls can't apply until December 1.
You're getting mixed up. The person asking the original question is a rising 2L, talking about interviewing this summer for a job they will hopefully get their summer between 2L and 3L next year.
You're both saying the same thing.
But what about 3Ls? Anyone have an idea of the time frame for applying for an actual job/post-bar internship? Would applying June or August still be the time to start sending out apps, or is it better to wait til spring semester or even after graduation?
It all depends on the office, both for summers and post bar. A lot of offices will want early applications for everything, but a lot will also operate on later time schedules (for example, the offices in my area all start looking for summers in January, and the people I know who've gotten post bar internships/paying jobs have applied for them at the end of 3L or even after taking the bar).
I would recommend looking at the websites for every office you're interested in, and if they don't have this information online I'd call sometime this summer.
