Consulting my 2L Summer, hoping to obtain midlaw firm job 3L year

Any advice? I'm interested in tax or securities.

Hoping to pad up my resume up some more during my 2L year.

What type of consulting/consulting firm? Depending on that answer, I'd probably try to obtain a midlaw/small law summer gig during the school year and for 2L summer. Going to be tough to convince a firm that they should hire you full time when you have little/no legal experience.

Ditch consulting if you want to end up at a law firm.

Is this pre-2L summer or in advance of your 2L summer? That could be pretty important.

Big 4 is a pretty good outcome. The proverbial midlaw gig is pretty tough to find. If you want to work at a firm, I'd try and get something for next summer and ditch the big 4 gig. But if I were in your shoes I'd just stick w/ the big 4 job and shoot for a full time offer from them. Of course, that is just one person's opinion.

EDIT: nvm. This is moot until you have an actual offer. These are competitive jobs -- you can't just assume you will be able to land one.
