There is no point checking 1L grades in core courses (electives not included) until after the Law Review deadline passes. Mark my words.

Ah, well.  At least by that point, it'll seem irrelevant. 

"Great 4th of July party.  Let me make a call.  Oh, wait; grades are up."



I think the LR deadline was a Friday and then grades started coming up the following Monday or Tuesday. I assume they don't want to alter people's performances/participation in the write-on with grades.

I definitely did. When I was a 1L interviewing at firms I emailed upperclassmen who had worked there to get their take on who my interviewers were going to be and anything they cared to share. We had only been in school for 10 weeks so I certainly didn't know who all of the people were and where they worked.

I don't know - it still bugs me to a certain extent. Not to mention, I'm just sort of curious where everyone is working and I don't necessarily know people well enough to ask - especially ITE when they might not have gotten a firm job. A modified list of the firms and how many people were working there would be useful in my opinion. Anything less is OCS just trying to cover their butts.

What are people's thoughts on OCS not releasing a "who worked where" list this year? I have mixed feelings about it; on the one hand I don't necessarily want to out people who didn't get firm jobs this summer, but I also found commentary on this site and others useful when choosing where to go when it was based on actual information about (e.g.) what % of people from Chicago were working at what types of firms, etc?

And maybe it's just OCS trying to hide the ball about how bad the economy actually is.

Anon is 100% right about 2L/3L grades - it is highly dependent on the class.

My one piece of advice would be to take seminars taught by practicing attorneys. My best grades - by far - have come in these types of classes. I was in one class in the fall where we had to write 3 papers over the course of the quarter; the longest was 4 pages and you got to work in groups of 3-4 for each one. It was pretty awesome. The prof would hand back the papers and you could see the grades on top: 180, 181, 182 and 183. It was awesome.

I filled them out b/c I really liked my two classes. And b/c I hope they give Henderson tenure.

I wish we got our mini-MBA grades back. I mean, we did finish the final exam a month and a half ago.

Agreed. I bet it's there but just not released. IIRC, the spring grades que will open as soon as exams are over, so we should get it in another week.

Seminars are pretty great but not because they're interesting.

Well sir, you have clearly never taken Roman Law

And apparently I'm glad I have not?  ???

Which seminars had boring assignments?  I was under the impression that they were more like cool grad classes, for which you want to read.


Are you serious? I've been enrolled in four seminars this year and I've NEVER read for them. I usually do the reading for the first day to be ready in case the format of the class is such that I need to have done the reading, but never beyond that. I contribute in class and pick up what I need from classroom discussion. Seminars are pretty great but not because they're interesting.

How can anyone be that bad?  2Ls still complain about her.  I mentioned her to some people that you guys know at Wine Mess, while comparing her to Harcourt, and there was a collective groan.

I'm not sure how you could actually be that bad without trying. It was an experience. Thanks Law School.
