So far put in about 100 apps (mostly east coast/Midwest) and gotten 3 callbacks, almost 50 rejections. Pretty fun stuff.
Not sure who to answer. ~Top25%/2013/MVP. Not elite by any means but had good experience at a v25. Want AUSA anyways and getting some bites but not cleaning up there either.
Obviously good credentials, but I think your "problem" might be that you'd be coming in as a ~6th year, which is pretty senior. Did you work in big law prior to the clerkships?
Yeah, as someone that far out, it might make sense to work with a recruiter. Once you get in front of firms it might also help to be willing to drop a class year.
