You have a pretty good chance at getting a job by applying at Starbucks.

But if you want a legal job you're gonna have to share w people here what you are interested in so you can get some specific advice. Advice ab small firms is gonna be pretty different than advice about DA offices.

Agree to this. Also, you need to specify where you have ties, whether you are willing to live anywhere as long as you get a legal job, and if you have anything else special going for you (e.g. LR, MC, IP, URM)

I would do any kind of work... ties to NY and school is there ( not too hard to figure out what school it is now...) on secondary journal, not a urm.
