2L Summer Associate Question

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Sep 27, 2017 2:16 pm

Has anyone secured a summer associate position post OCI/traditional recruitment timeframe?

I am a transfer and wondering how my 2L (first semester) grades will translate to gaining legal employment next summer.

Yes, it happens all the time.

Somewhere between not at all and quite a bit.

Don't bank on your second semester grades. Keep mass mailing and don't look back. There's no unique advantage to waiting.

I think it's possible to get 2L SA offers into Oct, but I've never heard of anyone getting a 2L SA in the spring of their 2L year.
