Not true concerning DA's Office's. They generally won't. If they do it's for what classes you took, not your GPA.
But doesn't it depend on the geographic location? I can imagine a rural DA's office in the boonies not being concerned with prestige, but I'm sure that more desirable. competitive locales (i.e. Miami, NYC, etc.) would care a great deal about grades?
Yes, but there are plenty of big cities who operate the same way. I'll also see small offices outwardly say they want good grades and not mean it in reality. NYC, particularly Manhattahan and Bronx make hay of GPA, but Brooklyn and Queens not so much, from my experience. Aside from NYC, since you mentioned them, I can definitely tell you Miami's about the interview and crap grades/school won't stop you from getting one. Experience is a big deal to them too. I can't speak to every office, but of the ones I'm familiar with, NYC offices are the only ones who give them significant weight. You'll have to speak to people in the office though to get the real scoop...websites and job postings won't give it to you.
