applying for 2L summer employment - do you call yourself 1L?

If this is the summer after your 1L year and you're applying for summer jobs, do you call yourself a second year law student? I just realized I've been submitting cover letters calling myself a 1L.... :?

I'm using "rising" second year student, but I really doubt it matters as you note the "second year" part.
