You're not unqualified but sending cold apps is just probably the hardest way to get a legal job as a 3L. You're basically hoping that the company or firm or whatever wants to hire at all, that if they want to hire they want to hire someone at the time you mail, that they want someone entry level, and that they want someone who can do what your resume says you have experience doing
Seldom do all those things align
Let me clarify that all of those applications have been for posted openings, did the mass mailing thing last fall and it was about 0/175. I even had a screening and callback interview with a firm and they still won't give me a yes/no offer a month and a half later.
ya brotato I have the same ~qualifications with you but w/ a lesser gpa; also sent out a fuckton of apps to no response
tbh at this point I think that all people w/o a job are fucked in the same way regardless of t6/t10/14 etc
