Just finished my 1L year and my goal is to work at a law firm in NYC for my 2L summer.
GPA: 3.72 (top 10%)
I am trying to work in tax law. I am enrolled in my schools tax clinic this fall and have a BS in accounting.
What are my chances of landing a summer internship in NYC?

Congrats on a great year. Not intending to insult you at all here, but you seem very uninformed re: Big Law at this point. I'd suggest looking at some of the OCI and pre-oci threads that are going on right now on this site, and kick it into high gear asap. From a T2 school its really going to depend in large part where your school is located. I'd imagine top 10% at a T2 in nyc like Cardozo gives you a fairly good chance at NYC big law, but if your school is in another market you may struggle a bit. You need to start mass mailing every firm in NYC asap, and also target firms in whatever market your school is located in.
