After reading this thread, I figured out why at least one person wasnt top 30% at that school...

I just have significant work experience as do most of my friends at the school so I'm sure that makes a big difference.
I don't want to count my eggs before they hatch, but thus far things are alright. How bout you?
yea, but the number of donations is factored into school rank for usnews...
Are you serious? That's ridiculous. As is the "number of library volumes" factor that always helps boost GULC's ranking.
I agree with Stole Your Nose. You are not in a particularly good position to find summer employment. You are the exact reason why so many people on this board trash non-T14 schools. Employment prospects suck even close to the top. I am at a top 20 and finished in the top 20% and still couldnt find a firm job my first summer. The only friends I have that managed to find something were IP kids or the top 10 or so students, not percent, in the class. Your only shot of really getting a firm job for your first summer would have been either having connections or being number 1 or 2 in your class. Dont let this get you down though. If you can get your gpa up a lot this semester, you may have a shot of pulling something during 2L OCI. And, like some other posters said, make sure you find something for this summer so you have a spot filled on your resume.
Thorc, you know me.... I am not either of those and I had a paid gig 1L summer....
Probably b/c my slackass prof held it up. I just got my last grade back from him early this week.
