Congrats, now enjoy the terror of attempting to maintain next semester after people figure out what they're doing.

What do you want to do? IMO one 1L summer job isn't better than any other. Do you want to do 1L of biglaw? Is there anything you want to get a feel for?

My general advice, by the way: keep your ego in check, for the sake of your friends and for the sake of yourself in interviews. As to transferring and jobs; be a lawyer: use your bargaining chips to get the best stuff you can - apply to transfer and use it as bargaining chips for more scholarship from your current school.

The best advice is that 'OCI' for 1Ls is a joke. Having great grades makes it a teeny tiny bit less of a joke for you, but only just. Apply to places you would enjoy working at and do it immediately, there's no secret to it.
