quick mass-mail results update to keep the hope flowing-4 cbs (completed/in the next couple of weeks) in my midwestern home market, 1 cb in a market near my UG where I have some ties, 3 screeners in DC. It may be tedious but it pays off!

I've mailed about 20 large firms in Florida. A couple dings, but I don't expect anything with my resume.

What is the time frame for midsize firms? I feel like I'll have a lot more success with those.

Anyone have success in San Diego? It's my home market and ideally I would love to practice down there but there are only a few "BigLaw" firms from my understanding, plenty of 2-10 attorney boutique firms and a metric fuckton of solo practitioners. Should I waste my time with the boutique firms and inquire about a Summer Associate position or just target the small amount of big firms and hope for the best? 8)

Snail mail rejection from Dykema DC even though I contacted them through e-mail.


So due to journal training + transfer orientation, I won't be available for non-DC callbacks until Tuesday, August 28. Is this really late? Am I screwed? I only have 4 DC interviews so far through mass mailing. All OCI screeners are NYC, and pushing NYC callbacks (if i get any..) back to end of Aug/beginning of Sept worries me if all of the NYC spots will get snatched up fast.

I was one of two summers at a 7 lawyer firm this summer - not in San Diego, but I guess I'm trying to say it doesn't hurt to ask. Play up any connections you have.

I don't think you'll be too late. I just scheduled a callback with a firm (admittedly non-NYC, but a pretty big market), and they said they don't even start hosting callbacks until August 29.
