Grrrr, thanks! Still learning my way around....
Well obviously, the first step is to do better this semester. After going over my exams I don't think this will be hard to do. My professors were impressed by my issue spotting and analysis but said that my organization is what really hurt my grades. Last semester my grades were C+, C+, and B-.I go to a top tier school although it's currently ranked 31. I thankfully already had a job for my 1L summer prior to receiving my grades so I am not worried about this summer but I am worried about 2L and beyond.Seeing as how the job hunt will begin my 2L year, is there any constructive advice to be given? I am very confident that my grades will be drastically higher this semester but I am just wondering how much first semester is going to hurt me. I am interested in working at a mid-size-large sized firm although I'm not specifically trying to have Biglaw...(I'm not even positive I know what that means)
OK worst possible spring semester ever imaginable....this makes me seriously wonder if I will be able to get a job.....or moreso, if I would be able to keep a job in the legal field...obviously this first year has showed me that maybe law just isn't my strong point. I scored considerably high on the lsat and did well in UG and studied my ass off for finals and I still seem to be the dumbest in all my classes:Property: C-Con Law: BContracts: C+Don't forget Fall Semester:Torts: B-Civil Procedure: C+Criminal Law: C+At this point I really don't know what I am doing wrong. I don't know if this is just the most I am capable of or what.In terms of a job search, what would anyone suggest? Are there any opportunities for me that OCI won't list? I'm thinking that OCI will be too competitive for me since I will be bottom of class. My school is ranked 30; where do Tier 3 and 4 students work? I am wondering if I will find success in that area. Please keep the taunting and rude comments to a minimum, as my feelings are already bruised enough and I am fragile at this point.
