you are not out of the woods if you network like a BOSS. reach out to as many law firm recruiters as possible (big, mid, small), schedule phone calls, meet for coffee... YOU MUST do everything you can to become a "person" in their eyes... otherwise, you will be known on paper - aka by your resume only.

I want to give another huge thank you to all of you for your advice.

I've started talking to my professors. Im starting to get an idea of where i went wrong so hopefully ill be able to work that out next semester focusing on different things.

I talked to my carreer planning office came up with strategy on where to go from here.

I've been trying to network my ass off this past week and a half. Sent about 30 emails to partners at different firms so far. Already got three phone calls set up as well as 4 lunches scheduled with partners at firms in the area im doing my judicial internship this summer.

Any more advice anybody has is greatly appreciated. Thanks again!
