Do you want to do tax?



Yes, I do. I took several tax classes as a JD, it was not just a desperation move.

Assuming you're at Columbia/Chicago, you should contemplate doing a tax LLM at your school after bullying them into giving you a discount. With top 10% at CCN, you don't need the preftige of NYU's tax LLM to get you a job. You just need to give yourself another shot at interviewing and buy yourself the before a clerkship.

Also, find some of your employed friends and get them to critique your interviewing before you try more job searching. Preferably someone who is harsh and blunt.
