Of course. Me personally, I wouldn't waste my time making $10/hour or something when I could travel. for probably what would be my last summer off ever.

Wait, this isn't actual recordings of the SCOTUS cases, it's some guy reading them into a mic and putting them into mp3 format?

Seriously? What makes you think there is a demand for this?

CrimPro depends on the type of course you have. Is it the typical Miranda/fourth amendment/Katz course, or is it the process course where you basically see every step of the arrest process from arrest to trial and appeal.

You'll probably be okay. I'm a 1L at a lower ranked school and I have 7 interviews lined up already with at least 1-3 more expected.

My school is the same way and has 3-4 hour exams, but I got up like 5 times total per exam because I had to stretch and was drinking Red Bull constantly through the exams. :p

Don't send out resumes until your grades have come out for the first semester.  Even if you mention that you'll follow up with the grades when they arrive, most firms will have already sent you a rejection letter....

EXCELLENT advice. 99% of firms just tell you to reapply when grades come out. What's differentiating you from everyone else applying in December? Basically, you have a resume that says 'Expected JD Class of 20XX'

I got a big law job in Washington, DC by applying after grades came out and most of my friends did, too. The people who did send out resumes in December occasionally got an offer, but very few, if any, to big law.

Take it from someone who got a big law job 1L summer: Just wait, apply in Feb. and let your grades speak for themselves.

I just finished in the top 1% of a Tier4 law school. my ranking is #9/ 560. my 1st semester GPA was a 3.53, second semester, 4.0. this brings me to 3.77 overall GPA for my 1L. the grade curve is a C. I made moot court and have won a book award for legal research and writing. i applied for transfer to some top schools, such as cornell, bu, and bc. i had an awful LSAT grade (won't even mention it here) but my UGPA was 3.8.  what do you think my chances are of making such a huge leap? 

You finished in the top 1% but finished with a rank of 9/560?
