Then it's just baffling to me why you didn't apply for an SA? What were you thinking? You should've recognized that for SA, you can't wait around for grades to determine whether to apply or not.
not OP but I'm in a similar boat as OP in that I didn't think of really applying to 1L SA's even though I did other job apps, but now that I got pretty good grades I'm bummed that I was foolish not to do it earlier.
For me at least, it was a combination of everyone on TLS saying how hard it is to get a 1L SA + expecting so-so grades + the fact that my resume is crappy so I figured they would just toss my application without even waiting for my grades
Sometimes pessimism can get the best of you to the point where you don't even bother putting in the effort. Foolish mistake and probably threw a chance at $30k down the toilet but nothing I can do about it now
