Condolences guys / gals.
I'd recommend immediately (like, before COB) emailing the recruiting director of literally every major law firm in NYC with a cover letter quickly describing your situation and a current resume. You can get the emails off of the NALP directory and have it done inside an hour I bet.
Summer classes can be under-enrolled due to either low yield or increased demand since the fall; all it takes is one bite and there's nothing to lose at this point. Firms won't be oblivious to the good PR they'll get in the legal community - and amongst career services offices / next year's potential recruits - if they're at all in a position to lend a hand right now.
Also get in touch with your career services office (either for the first time or with the concrete update). This is a unique and unfortunate situation, they might be able to call in favors on an individual level they couldn't have when you all were just another 2L applicant in the fall.
I highly doubt there's anything I can do to help as a random 3L on the internet, but if there is something don't hesitate to drop me a PM.
