I spoke with the OCS at our law school. She told me not to focus too much on MM, and there wasn't much that I could do at the moment. She told me to focus 100% on my studies instead of mailing my resumes everywhere. I'm a bit skeptical of her advice so I'd like to hear how you guys think about it.
I know I definitely should do my best for those upper level courses, but at the same time, I don't want to give up mass mailing altogether (MM'd 400+ so far). I really don't want to put all eggs in one basket. After all, law school GPA is unpredictable. You can put in 200% effort and stil end up with median grades.

Grades don't matter as much anymore. A lot of your friends are slacking off, so you can study later around like November.

strong grades this year put you in a decent position for 3L oci. 3L oci is limited but if you can get yourself to top1/3 at a mid t14, I think you can score pretty well.
Others are of course right too -- literally no reason not to keep applying in the mean time though.

If there are recruiting contacts, go through those contacts unless you have a connection with the hiring attorney. MM to a hiring partner will either be ignored, deleted, or (possibly) sent to the recruiting contact, depending on the firm/hiring partner.Anonymous User wrote:Not OP here. But, can MM directly to hiring partner have any adverse consequences?
Personally, I find it more effective than MM to recruiting.
This is basic networking, really.
