What I want to know is whether anyone has ever gotten a paying firm job as a 1L BEFORE grades come out. They may interview, but all the 2L's I talked to said that no one received offers until early February after grades.
Ours was only 1 credit. I know I got a B+ on our main assignment (worth 60% of the grade) and an A on the rest of the assignments, so I think I have a shot an an A- in that class. The firm I worked at as a paralegal used to sort attorney resumes based on legal writing grades alone.
eek! thats pretty scary...I hope I pull at least a B- in LW..there's always next semester. It was my professor's first time teaching, and she favored a VERY particualr writing style that I just couldnt pick up on in time...
I'm at a t20 and competition is murderous. I know a girl who got 98/100 questions correct on her mult. choice torts exam and still only managed an A- on a B+ curve. I think it's a little bit luck, when it comes to mult. choice, and whole lot about who has the best study plan that they can stick to throughout the year.
