Mass Mailing Blues - Good Stories/Advice to Stay Positive?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Sep 29, 2017 7:46 pm

Background: At a t14 with sub-median grades. Been told over and over I'm an interviewer with very few if any faults and that I come across great, so for me, I think its safe to say grades are my limiting factor.

I've been mass mailing for a while now. Every major market, plus towns near those major markets. I've been gunning for corporate law in any one of those markets, and have targeted all the firms I can on NALP, Vault, AmLaw200, etc. Either have heard back silence or rejections. Career Services has been all talk - no help. I'm not picky at this point - I would jump at the first interview I received, no matter the practice area.

I'm not really looking for advice (though if anyone had any, I'd take it). I'm just trying to find ways to stay positive in all of this. If anyone has anything they could share to help, I'm all ears

Start shooting for midlaw. Decent salaries, great experience. I just picked up an offer through mass mailing. Keep going. Work your network.

I used Chambers, my CS, and asked for referrals from my network. Others might have better advice.
