I had a few screeners with firms, but no callbacks. Ended up with a gov job. (Also a couple of legal aid offers) Unpaid, but It counts as externship credit. I'm still getting interview requests from some of the later applications I sent in, so I hope I didn't mess up by accepting the first offer I got. I was starting to panic, but within the week, I had three solid offers and interview requests from a judge, USAO, and a couple of other places. Don't accept the first offer straightaway. Take a few days to decide.
