i didn't summer start, but i think summer starters do have a big advantage over fall starters when it comes to 1L summer jobs and 3L clerkship applications.
I had a question about this. At least with 1L summer jobs, isn't there a certain date (like Nov 1 or something) before which you are not allowed to ask CS about employment or send out mass mailings to employers? Because if that's the case, SSers can't apply earlier, they just have a set of grades that FSers have to wait til January to get, right? That's probably an advantage, but its not like employers wouldn't have their timelines adjusted for a January release of grades since that's when all of the other schools will release grades.
Also, I think if you did well in the summer term, you probably would've done well in the fall term. If you have bad grades in the summer, its not going to do much good, unless you somehow can mitigate it with your fall grades.
I think I see that SSers have some advantage, but it doesn't seem that huge. Or am I missing something?
