How you approach your law school application can also help you get a 1L job!

A brief snippet from two very happy and endearing emails I received. Tell a story, not just now, but in your interviews!

Hi Mike!

I just wanted to give you an update on how first semester went: I just had callbacks with Cooley for a 1L SA position, and Munger, Skadden, and Wilson Sonsini just requested my grades.

I have to thank you again because a lot of the materials we prepared for my application were extremely helpful in the job search too. And the tips you gave me for telling a story and framing my interests and background have been extremely useful in applications and during interviews. Thank you again for ally our help and encouragement over the last year!

I wanted to say thank you. I am absolutely loving Michigan Law. The people here, the programs, the events that take place, everything appeals to me. I am now terrified at the idea that I even wanted to go other places and tried so hard to get off of those waitlists. I am even more terrified because I almost did not apply here until you told me that I should at least see what happens.

Thank you for always being so prompt to respond to my inane questions and for providing so much feedback to my concerns. Thank you for giving me such great advice when I was trying to make the choice on where I should end up. I could not be happier at Michigan and I am so excited for the next 2.5 years. If you ever need an extra testimonial for your site or anything else at all (or have a student who has questions about Michigan and wants to talk to someone) please let me know! I hope you are doing well and thank you again!
