An interviewing problem, stemming from anxiety, shyness, or whatever, is usually something mutable. My 1L grades and school, on the other hand, are set in stone forever.

Given my interests, I'm not too familiar with the BigLaw hiring process--is it too late for the T10 person to mass mail if OCI hasn't been kind to him/her?


No it isn't too late to mass mail.

Pardon my ignorance: what does "stuck in the Vale" mean?

bump.

What should be my strategy for the 2L jerb hunt? Hitting up EJW next month and applying directly to places my home state. Nothing so far, tho that's expected with the public interest hiring timeline (still frustrating as fuck to witness OCI kids gloating about offers, but w/e--like Void said, I'm playing a totally different game from them)

Does anyone know definitively of PDs offices that don't ask for transcripts? Yeah, my grades are that embarrassing.
