J, if you didn't bring enough penis for everyone, you shouldn't have brought any penis at all.

And chewing gum.

A lot of people at my school are doing clerkships with federal judges this summer.  Sounds like great experience, but I don't think they get paid.

I also think that grades are an overrated part of the 1L job search.  Yes, all else being equal, better grades at better schools open more doors.  But networking can be just as important, if not more so, as long as your grades are respectable.


I agree too-- some of the people I know who didn't do so hot grade-wise have great connections and got their jobs that way.  I don't have *&^% for connections, so grades were more important for my job search.

one of my clasmates has a parent who was a highschool drinking buddy of a prominent former politician.  this person is a slacker and earned crappy grades.  however, this person is clerking for a state supreme court justice in the state the prominent former politician is from.  coincidence?  you decide.

Where do you want to be? And where are you? Remember, I've been away. I know little.

Nonono, HD is blond. I'm a brunette. I'm not sure if that "le sigh" was good or bad, so...
