Poor Fall 2L Grades

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jan 27, 2012 12:26 am

I know that there are many threads out there about this topic, but I'm still worried about my situation. I go to a T10 and have my 2L fall grades. For the semester, my grades were: A; B+; B-; B-; B-. I'm incredibly embarrassed by those B-s. My GPA for the semester was 3.01, and my 1L GPA was 3.18. Overall, my GPA dropped about 0.05.

I have a V100 SA over the summer. How concerned should I be about this negatively affecting me moving forward?
I know that my grades weren't the greatest to begin with, but I am just worried that my last semester grades will be interpreted as if I "bottomed out." Any thoughts?

I got 2 B-'s this fall, and 4 1st semester fall 1L. im not worried in the slightest about my V100 SA. my gpa went up .04 actually, but i think a .05 drop is irrela. they knew they weren't getting a grades-master when they offered you a job in the first place.

it shouldn't make a difference because your GPA didn't drop that significantly. They hired you as a median/below median student, so i don't think they would no-offer you because you remained one.

I know one firm whose name starts with an "S" is very strict about grades when considering offers.

Seward asked for my law and undergrad transcripts during a callback, but I don't know about after a summer. Does Susman care about grades or just clerking?
