Do you guys have sources other than Nalpdirectory for getting firms? The information there is really incomplete. I'm pretty sure my home city (midsized legal market) has more than 5 law firms

Can't believe I didn't see this till just now.

Is anyone else sort of overwhelmed trying to keep track of all the people you're supposed to call/set up lunch or coffee with? How do you guys stay on top of it?

Yeah I have a spreadsheet but I guess I should add columns for "first emailed" & "scheduled meeting" or something.

Have you checked Resume Launchpad? It seems like it might be useful for finding firms/contact info:

Martindale sucks. Resume Launchpad has been a lot better than NALP, especially when done together.

So I've basically got my mass mail research done and "form" cover letter set up, but GULC doesn't release journal results until early August, like right before EIW. Should I go ahead a start mailing now, and just be like "journal results in August" or should I wait?

Now, then update when you make journal.

No excuses, mass mail like a champion.
