Sincerely seeking advice on 3L recruiting with 3.12 from T14

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jul 03, 2013 4:15 am

so I am from T14 and my gpa for 1L was 3.21 last year, and totally struck out on the OCI.
I did accumulate other experiences,( my 1L summer was with the state court judge and I did well with the moot court )
but my gpa totally got torn this semester and I am left with 3.15 to do a 3L recruiting.
I am currently summering at a gov't (that does not lead to a permanent position).

at a loss as to what firms I should target.
My primary location is NY (I have work experiences here) and SF (I grew up here).

I am still thinking of mass mailing all big laws at the end of July.
Do you think it's all useless?
what should i do?

Massmailing wouldn't be useless. Sitting there and doing nothing would be. While you may not have the world's best odds at landing a gig, by massmailing you certainly have better odds than otherwise. Also, think closely about whether you have any contacts/favors you can call in. T14 would give you some credibility if someone on the inside was recommending you.
