Anyone who is jobless should know that if you gun for midlaw, or a district court clerkship and there after biglaw 3L year, you should be able to lock up a job with Chicago on your resume.

I have friends who did both after getting no offered/ or not given a 2L position.

Do some research in your local market. About half of them are on NALP in my regional. The others are not but can be found on other law firm indexes. They generally pay 105k+ starting, and your chances at making partner are a ton higher than most biglaw because 1)They have lower leverage numbers, and 2) They rarely get Chicago students.

That is harder. Have you been rejected by every biglaw shop in town yet?

I think your best path may be to gun for a district clerkship. Thereafter you can mass mail and get an entry position pretty easily, unless your grades are really low.

I'm having a similar problem.

Do you mean go for a district clerkship 2L summer? Sorry, I don't know ANYTHING about clerkships. Any advice on where to begin? Was hoping to start at a Chi firm after graduation...

I would start first with attending the clerkship meeting being held Nov 11. You should've received an e-mail with a link to RSVP.
