But you can send to 1 or 2 alum partners in your desired practice area. Just dont be neurotic and desperate.
Not OP but do firms really blacklist for applying too much?
I've taken TLS's advice and have been mass mailing since 2L year. I'm a 2016 grad.
This means, I've applied for every 1L/2L position in every city I was willing to work.
3L year I cut back and only applied to 1-2 cities.
As a graduate/lateral I'm only applying to one city.
Yay, I did good right? Mass mailed like a champ?
Well... now, I almost feel like I shouldn't be applying to any firms unless I have a legitimate shot at them.
For example, I see an open posting for Firm X which is looking for 1 year experience (I have ~6 months). Conventional TLS wisdom says "apply" anyway but the fact that I have 2-5 rejections already from each firm (1L year, 2L year, 3L year) makes me hesitant.
