Let's do this c/o 2013!
Top 15% at a T2 that places well in the region.
Considering these are my exact stats, I'm suddenly pretty hopeful. If you wouldn't mind PMing me, I'd love to chat about this (also at a T2 in the mid atlantic).
On my front, I've compiled a list of high school and college alumni to send out feelers to. Any suggestions on how to go about this? Just ask to meet up and talk about their practice area and firm? I'm mainly looking at boutiques as of now (10-20 person firms with very specific practices, i.e 7/11 bankruptcy, comm lit, etc.), should I look at larger firms too?
That seems like good way to get your resume closer to the top of the pile. I took a more reckless approach and simply sent out a copy of my resume, transcript and a cover letter to several mid-sized firms that I found on Martindale-Hubbell. Most of my interviews are with firms of that size. I am, however, interviewing with two larger firms (one with 150+ and the other 300+, listed on NLJ250), so there seems to be some life there too.
