Non-Rejection Letter Again
A couple weeks ago, I sent in some more information (grades, legal writing sample, patent writing samples) to the small firm that sent me a non-rejection letter back in January. Now they've responded with another non-rejection letter I don't really know what to make of this, especially since the language of this letter is almost exactly the same as the first N-R letter, except that it says "get back to us later in the spring" instead of "at the beginning of spring" (as it said in January).
I want your advice. What should I do with this? I'm thinking that in a couple weeks I should contact the person who sent me the letter and say something like "I know you have never hired 1L's before because you are probably concerned with the costs/distractions of training them, but this concern doesn't apply to me because I am a patent agent with three years of experience."
The other thing I might want to emphasize is the fact that the firm has mentioned in both letter that they may have a lot of litigation this summer that they might need help with, and even if the firm feels I'm not a great fit for their litigation team (understandable since I am a 1L), I could take over some of the patent drafting work and free up some of their attorneys to work on the litigation.
Does this make sense? Would I be being too pushy? Am I wasting my time? If I am wasting my time, should I keep doing it in the hope that I will "wear them down" with the shear weight of my persistence? HELP!
