I have a similar situation, but in regards to biglaw firms. i have a 3.1'ish GPA at an HYSCC law school... i landed a summer job that has undoubtedly catapulted my legal research, writing, and analytical skills to a level far beyond what I ever acquired as a 1L. despite the amazing, incredibly educating experience, i have this awful gpa hanging over my head. same question as the OP minus the drop-out consideration: am i totally screwed for biglaw firms in this economy, with this gpa???
