If only all the other ND kids would stop skipping firm receptions...
Seriously. Networking was so huge for me this summer. I can attribute half my callbacks to networking. My offer ended up coming from networking - my entire story for why I wanted to practice in the specific group came from a phone call and coffee I had with someone in a different practice group. ND Undergrads and ND Law alums are all equally helpful and enthusiastic in getting ND people jobs - it's really not that hard to land SOMETHING if you meet the GPA floor and want it bad enough (assuming you can bring it home in the interview).
This. Above median at lower t13, all of my non-NYC offers came from networking.
