Terrible terrible grades in law school. Terrible. Like, bottom quarter. Local law school.
Interned for 3 semesters and a summer (an entire year 'certified', so practicing basically as an atty as long as I had a babysitter in the vicinity). Have literally never shown a transcript or anything else from law school, as long as I have my bar card, they're cool with it. honestly I don't think they have any clue about my miserable grades. Nor do I think they would care.
Colorado like system, had an offer by Christmas of 3LoL (this didn't help grades).
Just to reiterate, except for the very very very top of the PD ranks (pds, fed, the high paying Cali offices) what REALLY matters is connections and experience.
Eta: not a 3L, graduated in may '12
