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?

Nooteboom thanks so much for answering my question!

oh and iscoreda, i just spent the last 10 minutes reading prolesurge's profile. Wow, i guess i wont feel too sorry for you :) People are so bizarre. Ok, im not at the end yet, but so far my favorite part is:

"Tune in next week when Prolesurge's LSN profile attempts to reunite a family torn apart by drugs, poverty, and the Endangered Species Act! Don't miss it!"
- prolesurge

because thats exactly how i was starting to feel.

funny, i thought you were one! yea, what is it with all of a sudden needing unconditional affection that can be controlled by food and clean bedding?

and i just read what you wrote on my lsn, and you're right, a usc acceptance for me doesn't exactly help your cause, but it would give me pause/cause to withdraw from UT. i checked out your lsn, and all of the reservations you have about being in LA i have about being in austin... except that austin might actually be cooler than LA.

finally, (not that anyone is going to respond to this thread anyway, so lets talk about nonrelevant things some more) people have been soooo mean on your lsn wall!! What a downer. Do you know these people?
