I hope not. I've got participation (and some success) in in-house moot court competitions, and that's it. Hopefully grades speak for themselves. Were we supposed to be doing something other than studying?

idk, i just got bored of reading so I signed onto a bunch of crap. My 2nd semester grades may have suffered slightly as a result (although I have no idea, it IS law school). Overall, I'm still ballin'. I'm just wondering if I can be cut any slack for some of the higher ups or if firms are just number crunchers.

I think they're sort of important if you went straight through. My resume would pretty much just be my GPA if I took off community service and student groups I was involved in my 1L year.
