Back in my day I got a lot of straight to CBs from mass mail. Like 3 of em. Then again, I mailed before OCI...
I have been mass mailing firms, mainly mid-size firms, for the past few weeks. And I've started to set up lunches with partners.
A lot of them who have gotten back to me have stated that "at this time we're not currently looking to hire 2L law clerks."
How should I take that? Does that legitimately mean that they haven't started to look for 2L law clerks, or is that basically a "we're not hiring period, stop bothering us."
Can't really say for sure. Sometimes those missile firms hire on the same timeline as the large firms. Those people are probably done or close to it. Sometime they hire later in the fall. Sometimes they hire in the spring. It's hard to say.
God, it just feels that everything is in the air, and all of this waiting kills.
I know things aren't as cheery as OCS portrays them to be. From personal knowledge, I know some mid-size firms already have their clerks for the summer, while others either have not posted, or aren't yet interested in hiring clerks.
I've been very fortunate that my parents have been supporting me throughout law school, so I'll be graduating with about $100,000 in debt. Which is apparently a manageable debt load, compared to my classmates who already have $150,000 in loans.
