I interviewed with a few smaller firms for 1L summer, and I heard "We don't care about grades all that much, we're much more concerned about fit with the firm."  Which sucked for me because I probably had better grades than the other people they were interviewing; guess I just wasn't their type (plus, just about every 1L in the city was interviewing for the same jobs).  Either way, don't get discouraged about grades if you want to work at a small firm, because as long as you're competent and hard working, grades aren't all that important.

hey guys- i really appreciate your comments. my grades are back and i actually did a lot better this semester (gpa this semester was .6 higher than last semester). overall my gpa is still not the best it could be, but i think i'm just happy that i improved so much because i want to be here and my grades finally reflect that.

that being said, it should be interesting to see how the 2L job search pans out..
