Too Early to Apply for 2L Summer?

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Apr 13, 2015 6:30 pm

Quick question for the experts:

I know its finals time, and I should be studying (and I am), but is it too early to apply for a 2L summer? Can i just reach out to firms now and send them my resume and transcript from my 1st semester (especially if im afraid I won't do as well this semester)

quick background: I have a judicial clerkship and a 1LSA at a bigfirm

They're almost certainly going to ask for an updated transcript before they interview you, so I doubt your strategy is going to work. I would say worry about this over the summer, when you should have plenty of free time to be sending out apps. Also, if you already have a clerkship (has clerkship hiring really moved up that early already?) then I doubt you have anything to worry about on the biglaw front, so just focus on finals for now.
