Recent Grad - Possible to leverage amazing last semester

Postby Anonymous User » Sun May 19, 2013 4:42 pm

I just graduated, and I have a BK job with a tiny firm lined up for post bar. I "am jur'd" 4 classes (including BK) last semester bumping me into top 1% at my TTT. No SA offers in 2L. Would it be possible to use my amazing final results to get into any big law with BK/insolvency practices? Should I just settle with what I have?

Probably not, but no harm in trying.

No clue, but maybe try clerking at one of few big BK clerkships. I hear some good firms will hire former clerks from them.
