That's a PT curriculum? 3 classes and legal writing is full time first semester at a lot of schools (GULC included). Top 20% wouldn't give you a chance but if you don't mind spending the $75 fee then no one's going to stop you.

If you're after the experience, good for you.  There's something to be said for that.  But don't pretend that's not a bad wage for somebody they're hoping will come back in a few years and help them make hundreds of thousands of dollars.

What else would you be after for 1L summer? A lot of people work 20hrs at a volunteer job and then do a non law related job to make money. I don't think that 20/hr waiter job is going to help in 2L OCI.

You're lucky to have anything paying at all. I'm at a far better school and I would be very happy with that job for 1L.

rule 11 is going to be easiest to argue because its been made stronger and weaker several times and there are supreme court opinions going both ways

the website lists passage rates for schools. non-aba students very rarely pass the bar exam

on the plus side, the mayor of LA attended a non-aba law school (though he was unable to pass the bar even after several tries)

Some schools specify that you can't even use LRW instructors as recommenders, even if you can its probably not going to carry much weight since they don't have the same professional status as a tenured prof.

what is an oral brief? I surf the net mostly when the teacher is talking about something unimportant

I doubt you are going to get a paying job but thats more to do with your school than your grades. I got a 3.8 my first semester (tier 2 also) and I doubt I'll be seeing any money this summer unless I can land an RA gig. I'm a bit worried about getting anything at all actually since its so late.

A lot of people applied for and got volunteer stuff before grades were even released. You still might have a chance at some judicial internship or city gov internship.

Is this really the case? Are you suggesting they're doing it on purpose? At my school grades are released pretty much at the same time for all years ..

At my school the 2L and 3L grades have been released while the 1L grades are not yet due. 1L grades are due to the registrars office on the last day that a student can request a tuition refund.

Have you tried talking to your first semester professors about your tests? I don't mean ask them to change your grades but ask them what was wrong with your answers. How about you schools academic support office?
