2.08 GPA. I'll be keeping my full scholarship, but I can't/won't finish at the top of the class. Someone has to finish bottom. If there are any non-1L-wannabe-law-review posters with some pragmatic advice that'd be great. My "big idea" was to take the summer courses so I would be able to work DURING 2L and 3L. I have no idea what kind of work, what it entails, or if it would pay.As for study abroad, I'm not going over there. I'd have to pay for classes.
I think we can assume that gratif isn't hoping for biglaw. I think it would help us all out a little if we didn't all automatically assume that everyone going to law school wants to go to biglaw. That said, OP, a lot of this depends on what your hopes are for post-graduation. The working through school thing is fine if you're going to go work in your dad's firm, but if you're looking to get hired by someone, grades should be a priority. Someone has to be at the bottom, but that someone doesn't necessarily get a job. If that's your attitude, law may not be the profession for you.
