I am currently working at EY-Parthenon as a summer associate and looking to move towards MBB for full-time. Any tips on getting an interview at McK given that my university is a non-target?

Current Summer Associate at Amlaw50 firm in the corporate group which pretty much only does M&A. When should I start applying if I want to switch firms? My school doesn’t allow rising 3ls to participate in OCI, so I’m assuming my only option is to email firm recruiters directly and/or look at firm websites for openings. Is it ok to apply to junior positions on firm websites or are there specific postings for rising 3ls?

In August of 2019, I hit rock bottom. I was working at a T1 law firm as a summer associate, and was constantly drinking (before work, during work, and of course at all the after work social events). Things got so bad for me someone reported my drinking to HR and an investigation was launched. I have been sober since. But now I am applying to be admitted to the bar and the character and fitness committee is making me relive my darkest time on repeat. It is very triggering. (Contn in comments)

I interviewed a potential summer associate last week and they mentioned that they read and found my law review note (6+ years ago) interesting and I'm not sure whether our law schools are taking the "research your interviewers" suggestion too seriously.

Hello! I just passed the patent bar a couple of months ago so I'm applying to my first patent agent roles. However, I only have a masters in law, not a JD, so I have no summer associate experience, and every position wants experience first. How did some of you other patent agents get your first positions if you've never worked in a law firm before? Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thank you so much!

I feel extremely frustrated and had I known this before joining, I might have made a different decision. Contd.
