Any firms still looking for 2019 summer associate?

It seems like the wave for summer associate recruitment has passed. My school's job board has nearly no postings for 2019 summer associate positions. I wonder if people from the other law schools might want to share if they see postings from biglaws.

Congratulations to all of you who have received offers!

From my experience, there will be some firms with some available SA positions at around this time but you won't ordinarily know that from looking at job postings. Normally, you're only going to hear about them through personal connections or from those career services offices which those firms decide to inform about these openings.

Duke 2L here. This seems right, we haven’t had any job posting for any Vault firms for weeks.

PM me. My firm is hiring. What market are you interested in and what practice group?

Could you possibly send me a PM, JohnnieSockran? I'm also still looking for a SA, but it seems like TLS isn't letting me initiate PM convos given that my account is relatively new. Thanks!

I'm feeling the same way...I've sent out 200 mass mail applications for NYC firms and have only gotten 30 rejections so far. No screeners or callbacks. Hoping it's not totally over. Anyone have any recent luck?
