Heard it was extremely low for 1Ls and basically used as a recruiting tool to establish background/history with students before OCI.
At the risk of sounding bitter and whiny, I'm getting the impression that this is, roughly, the purpose of most 1L programs. Furthermore, it allows the firms to pre-screen candidates who they invite to interview for 2L summer ahead of OCI, sort of circumventing the whole process. I can't help but feel like this is sort of manipulative and one sided.
It’s always been one sided... They have what you want. Although you may match their hiring profile, you’re fungible. You have no leverage. There are hundreds of other students that have resumes just like yours.
Just keep your head up and keep grinding. Lining up a 1L SA is very very very rare. If you strike out, use it as motivation to crush finals this semester and get multiple offers during OCI.
