We had 3 SA's total and its a midsize firm in a secondary market so thats why outing it would not be great for me. If this was a NLJ firm with 10+ SA's I would have had this on ATL by now.
I have reached out to all firms I rejected at OCI and the have nicely told me they filled up their slots. Government route may be the way to go at this point. I'll post on here once I find something else, career services has been fairly unhelpful and basically told me they post firms on symplicity once in a while and I should look to those. Honestly I think career services is so scared of the market and so desperate to get firms to interview that they dont care that this happened cause they would rather have this firm come back to interview next year.
I know it may not seem like it, but you are so much better off finding out now. Getting lathamed as a 1 L would mean you might never find a job in law. You still have time. Even if firms you rejected are full, can you get an interview with them next fall? I guess that any job is better than nothing for the summer. If you can't get a firm job, then keep going on the clerkship angle.
You career services sound as useless as every other schools. There is no way they should be putting anyone in this position again. Why would anyone want to take a chance on a firm who is having so much trouble paying bills that they cancelled a class of three people. That firm is not going to be back on it's feet for at least a few years.
