NYC Advice Requested

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Aug 02, 2012 8:14 pm

Hi,

I am a T2/T3 rising 2L at a school not in New York, but close. I finished top 1%, law review, and I am on a full ride. This is all in my resume.

I am mass mailing all of the firms, but I work a lot, so I am hoping to write the most compelling cover letters etc. to firms in NYC I have a shot with.

Do any of you know firms I should look to mass mail that might be receptive to a borderline T2/T3 student in the top percentile?

Thank you in advance. I really appreciate it..

Why not pretty much all of them? There's no reason not to massmail almost every firm in NYC that has an SA program.

Mail and put effort into them all. Your rank will stand out and you never know whose eye you'll catch. But just go on NLAP and make sure you apply to the firms with the largest class sizes.

aw - a tough guy with generic advice.

op - get in touch with your undergrad career development office, get a list of all the JDs and see if they are in any strong firms etc.
