3.8 @ Michigan 1st semester
« on: January 27, 2007, 10:21:46 AM »
2 A-'s, 1 A.

What will this do for firm job prospects?  I already had interview w/ one and I assume that one's waiting for grades, and another asked for my grades when they came out.  Both firms are BIGLAWs in a secondary market (my hometown).

Those A-'s and a school like Michigan are really going to hurt you, you might only get paid $2400 a week so be prepared.

Do you really need the validation of hearing about this?

Michingan is on, what, a 3.3 curve? You're probably in the top-15% of your class. Bask in your glory (congrats), and be happy.

You have a good chance of getting a job if your personality is conducive to promoting the firm to your classmates the next school year. Your grades are good enough that you should get a lot of interviews. After that, it's up to you.

And that's the fun of the 1L lottery.

I think the curve is 3.18.

Thanks for the help.

We have several associates at my firm from UofM.  I would be willing to bet that even if you had a 3.0 at that school you would still be very highly pursued.

Thanks.  What city is your firm in, and how large is the firm?
