I was talking to someone about FTC entry level attorney jobs- sounded really interesting- starting salary is only 55K in DC!!!!!

I know this is premature since I haven't even had my 2L summer yet, but do you normally get a bonus for just hitting the minimum billable hours (2000)? I had thought it was only for doing extra hours but I've heard some people say hitting 2000 will get you a bonus of 20K or more in Chicago (and also that it's taxed more heavily than regular income).
Check out this link- it says most entry level jobs are GS-9. I guess year 2 you would be GS11, year 3 GS12, and then you move up a step at a time within GS12. I can't remember who was talking about this, but I don't think GS-11 starting is very common.

Two full weeks into classes now and it's like they've completely forgotten about grades. They were due from faculty over a week ago. This is ridiculous.
Is it true that there is little or no nutritional value in eating ready-made vegetable soups (like Campbell's chunky soup, progresso, etc)? I have heard that the processing basically robs the vegetables of any value. I ask because those soups are cheap and easy compared to making my own.
So I am genetically predisposed to have somewhat of a gut, but it's getting a little out of control. I'm 5-9, I was around 150 before law school and now I'm at 165. I know I'll never have a 6 pack but I would like to at least lose some of the fat. I was figuring since I'm in my late 20s I need to take in less than 1800 calories a day to slowly lose weight. I'm moderately active (usually walk a total of 3-4 miles a day). Any advice about what I can eat to cut down on the gut? I don't have the time or inclination to cook vegetables and I've heard that canned vegetables have basically no nutritional value- so should I just go with PB and J and spaghetti and other stuff that's not very high in fat? Any advice much appreciated...
So if you don't want to clerk, do your second and third year grades matter at all? I've heard you need to really bomb to have a summer offer revoked and once you get in the door for the summer you start letting your work do the talking. I know, it's just rationalization but I'm resigning myself to some ugly grades this time. Part of the problem is taking all classes that are curved (and are hard) while I know a bunch of people doing some phenomenal grade padding this year. One would hope people realize that since there is no standardization at all after 1L, the grades aren't really comparable across students...
Just curious if anybody's moved out here yet. I'm starting to get that anxious feeling now that we're a month from orientation. Hopefully I'm not the only one following my orientation advisors' advice not to do any prep work...
