This terrifies me. I'm heading down a similar path. Did everything turn out okay with your job search?


Worked for state AG last summer (minimally paid), got offer to go back permanently, but doing fed clerkship instead. So, yes, so far it's worked out.


Glad to hear that. I am striking at t-14 with decent grades and it does not feel good at all. So strange how easy the fates of law school students differentiate; I know people with my grades getting V-10 and I just hope that someone, anyone, anywhere, will respond.

Hang in there. Start doing apps for government and PI and keep mass mailing. Also, if you have decent enough grades, start getting to know the profs known to be good clerkship recommenders. Use the rest of this year to get all that stuff together and try to get a District Court clerkship.

OP here updating.

Still havent heard either way from any callbacks. Have picked up a couple of screeners through mass mailing so I guess that wasnt a waste of time. One of the screeners has turned into a callback. See what happens.

OP here. Rather not as it is still my only offer and has a pretty small summer class.
