Reapplying to a firm for 2L summer

Post by Stranger » Tue Jun 25, 2019 9:50 pm

When reapplying to a firm that rejected you for 1L summer, should you acknowledge the previous application in your cover letter? Does it make any difference if the recruiter put a hand-written note of encouragement in the margins of the form letter?

No, don't mention it. Recruiting will have you in the system, and if they were conscious enough to write you a note then you'll definitely be on their radar.

Agree with pneumonia. I'd say if you had a connection with an attorney you should talk to them but not so much just a recruiter
