Anyhow, thanks for the advice - going for broke tomorrow. It's amazing how much more helpful TLS is than my school's careers office
Just be smooth. Say you are interested in their firm -- wanted to reach out to a fellow alumni. Ask if they have a few minutes to chat about the firm, and attach your resume for their convenience. Let them know you've applied a bit ago but have yet to hear back.
Now the ball is in their court. They know exactly how they can help you, but there is no pressure and it's not awkward.
