You should not stop applying to jobs until you have one. If you're not hearing back within a couple of weeks of applying, you should anticipate rejection. There are exceptions, of course, but don't bank on exceptions. Apply apply apply.

OP is an idiot if he/she thinks 6 job apps is enough. Even with a good gpa at a good school, you likely need to be putting out 100+ apps at this point.

OP here. I put out way more, but they were all to big firms, which I didn’t mention bc I know they’re close to done with hiring. I’ll get more apps out.

Yeah I wasn't speaking about biglaw apps either. Those jobs filled in December.

because you put out 6 applications and are asking if you should freak out. and it's February...

start freaking out when it's the first week of June and you've put out 100 apps with nothing in hand.
