I'm going to need it. The firm doesn't seem too financially stable and, outside of snuff erotic fiction, my writing is poop. God, this blows.

I have received two pseudo offers, but no real offer. My SA is over and I sit and look at my cell pretending like I can make it ring with the hiring partner giving me the real thing. This needs to end.

1L SA here. Was told that I'd get an answer by the end of August/early September. Is this a good time to contact recruiting and say that this firm is still my top choice?

I admit, my confidence is shook. Can't really sit around and feel sorry for myself now, though.

I'm really sorry and I hope everthing works out even better for the both of you as you move forward. I am still waiting anxiously for an answer one way or the other...

Ugh sorry y'all. Small firms/offices? Did you ask for reasons?

Just gotta beat the pavement again and hope for the best. Call everyone you know, apply everywhere, etc. If it wasn't work-related, then it shouldn't hurt you going forward in interviews.
