DID I RUIN MY CHANCES FOR FIRM OFFER BECAUSE OF BAD 1L GRADE

Postby babydoll7304 » Sat Jun 09, 2012 1:15 am

Hi,

I go to a Tier 2 school, which has a strong reputation in NY. I placed relatively high during the first semester and was able to land a summer associate position at an amazing firm for my 1L summer. However, I just received my 2nd semester grades, and I dropped significantly. I went from 16% to 38%. I am so terrified that it will affect them asking me to come back next year for the following summer. Do firms care this much about grades? If I do a good job during the summer, is there a chance I will be given an offer? I feel like it may have ruined my chances.

Thank you!
