another great reason not to apply to jobs on 12/1. it likely will lead to more work in following up prior to finals. what are you gonna say, sorry I can't get back to you until after finals?
seriously 1L bros, chill on the apps until after finals. it doesn't matter. theres no job you have to get as a 1L, but there are grades you have to get.
I actually really agree with this but part of me would like to believe that if I get a 1L job at big firm now that my grades wont matter. Think about it. If I get a 1L summer job then they are probably going to offer me at least a half summer the next year and then an offer after that.
