Similarly, how important are 2L and 3L grades when evaluating a lateral candidate?
The question of the hour, lol -- please direct yourself to the 2L- no motivation thread.
Basically, don't get a C average and you'll be fine. Most firms don't care about grades after they've evaluated your work. But make sure your work is exemplary in the summer. I don't need to be a law firm recruiter to tell you that.
