I mean, you know a few things about me, and I was just wondering what it was that led you to this guess.It was your confidence in the fact that you'd be making a lot of money. Given the screwiness of the attorney job market, this was the only way I thought you could have such confidence. It had nothing to do with any thoughts about your talents.I knew that you might very well have something lined up due to interviews and such. However, the jobs that you can line up earlier in your educational career (i.e., before your last year), tend not to pay extremely well. Those offers come in at the end. Since you expected to be paid well, I figured that wasn't it.I have known talented, hard-working law school graduates who couldn't get an attorney job, even though they'd be great at it and they answered dozens and dozens of ads. I've known well-connected law-school students who had jobs lined up years in advance. I find it rather discouraging.My conclusion is that it's best to start networking as soon as possible, so you know people. I guess that if you're starting from zero, the best way to do this is to do an internship (or whatever it's called) over the summer. Of course, I've already had one bad guess on this topic already....
