Options if you strike out instead of dropping out

No idea what actually makes sense. Should you treat it like a primer for the race to clerkships and apply to reasonably cool federal judges for the summer?

Does that make any sense? I'm lost with the only thing to warm me being my pretty solid stats and debt. :)

I would modify this to any and all judges for the summer. I mean, if you get multiple offers, pick a "cool" judge, but may as well apply everywhere.

Alternatively you could apply to any/all "hiring" immediately positions for 2Ls as some of these mature into 40 hr a week summer gigs.

No, that doesn't make sense. A 2L judge summer is the second worst summer option ahead of RA. Doing a judge for 2L is like repeating 1L to learn more civ pro. Get an agency gig, work in-house, work for an association. Do something that gives you a credible field to apply to after law school.
