trying to get connex/advice from professors i've not met

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Aug 15, 2011 1:50 am

So let's just say I'm near bottom of the class at a T30. Not bottom 10 percent..but somewhat close.

At this point, I'm not expecting anything from OCI although I did get preselects at a big law firm and some decent midsized ones...i dont expect to get anything because im horrible at interviews. Anyways, my question is this:

1. because I have to rely more so on connections now, there are 3 professors at my school of the same ethnicity as me(don't laugh...but I just feel more comfortable asking them because I'm a minority and they seem nice although I've never met them). They all went to HYS and seem to know many attorneys. I need connections bad at this point and I was wondering if I should randomly email them without ever having met them and asking them for advice/help and maybe asking them to forward my resume to people they might know? To make it less weird, should I also try and set up a meeting with them?

Pretty much i'm going crazy right now because I want to work at a medium sized firm and my goal is to pull in 60-70k coming out for loan/living expenses and hopefully 100K+(10 years out of school). My grades suck and I really am trying to ask as many people to try and get as many attorneys with my resume in their hands...snowball effect so to speak...
