Same experience here. Only people from my T6 last year that managed to get 3L offers either did a 2L SA, had top grades by the end of 2L, or had significant pre-law school connections at the firm they got a 3L offer at.

if you get bad grades 2L, is it impossible to trade-up in 3L?

Any suggestions for SA when to start mass mail? Should we start before SA ends? Looking for DC market.

How does a bigfed internship (DOJ/SEC) compare to having a SA offer for 3L hiring?

It's hard to get a 3L position with good to average grades 2L, let alone worse grades. I'd expect to start at your current firm. Generally 3L hiring is REALLY not a thing that happens unless you're a great student.

May be a dumb question, but is it possible that some firms may experience SA movement due to the raises?

Top third at T14, looking to upgrade after SA. Better to email recruiters and apply or look for alum in practice area of interest and ask to meet for coffee (or both)?
