I'm also 1L at MVP and within top 8-10%. eng background, HYP UG, 2 years of work at HUGE tech company...and 1 firm interview
granted, I'm gunning for a major market
but yeah...you're not alone
Did you apply to IP boutiques (i.e. probably focused on patent prosecution) or just NLJ 250? You really should have a 1L SA at an IP boutique in the bag
I applied to some IP boutiques, but I guess not enough. I'm not really sure what qualifies as IP boutique...like for instance does Fish & Richardson count? They're a big firm but they primarily do patent lit/pros...
I think I wasn't careful in making a list of IP specific firms, and I only blanketed one market...so a lot of my lack of interviews is my own doing. That being said, it's not all bad OP, just like everyone else is saying 2L year should be no problem.
