Between my grades and connections I think I would have a pretty good shot, and if my next two interviews don't work out I think I might devote myself full time to gunning for the SAO.
Firm interviews didn't work out for me. Got the final CB result today in the mail, actually. In all honesty I'm kind of relieved the choice has been made for me. The whole OCI process inflated my ego and got me excited about the lavish lifestyle and the money, but taking classes like evidence has really sobered me up to the fact that public defense is where I belong. It's more doable than a lot of people on here seem to think. As long as you have the relevant experience on the resume and are good at public speaking, you will get a job doing this somewhere.
Preach, brother. I'm slowly starting to get away from that...money has always been everything to me, THE means of justifying myself. I've been infatuated with gigantic paychecks and beautiful condos, but there's been an emptiness to every person who isn't a new associate I can't get past.
I worked for the DCA this past summer, and I definitely still have time to start getting the requisite experience on my resume. I'm VERY connected to the Miami SAO, so I feel like I'd have a great chance. Behind on my bar application, but that could be fixed quick.
