How does 3L hiring work? I'm guessing it is straight hire into a first-year associate position? Or do some firms make you be a summer associate after you graduate and then decide whether to offer you alongside the rest of the SAs?

I'm curious because I am likely to not do biglaw my 2L summer, but interested in shooting for biglaw in a major market after graduation.

If you're interested in doing BigLaw after graduation, you should definitely do BigLaw your 2L summer. That is the route through which the vast, vast majority of first-year associate offers are given. 3L OCI is primarily for 2L BigLaw SAs looking to switch firms, and even for them, 3L OCI's a crapshoot, exponentially harder than 2L OCI and with exponentially fewer options. Folks who don't have a 2L SA under their belt have it even worse: Rightly or wrongly, firms assume that these students weren't able to land a 2L SA for whatever reason.

Finally, even if you do manage to land a position as a 3L, 3L hiring tends to be directly into a specific practice group (since firms usually only hire 3Ls if they discover a need for extra bodies in a specific area). Most firms offer returning 2L SAs the opportunity to rotate practice areas as full-time juniors; as a direct-hire 3L, you'd be robbed of that flexibility.

Didn't hear this from symplicity. My career counselor said Weil usually takes a couple 3Ls every year so I just sent the recruiter an application for general corporate. Got a phone call saying they were looking to fill Real Estate & Structured Finance. I already accepted another offer though so just wanted to share the info!
