Why do people use "N.B."? Just fucking use an English phrase rather than a Latin abbreviation. This is why nobody liked law students.

Because people claim it's happened before. But a lot of firms don't even ask for a transcript before giving full time offers. So at most firms it doesn't matter.

That doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

Also, some firms use it to ding assburgers.

This is a pretty verified case of it: --LinkRemoved--

But to be fair the wisdom is that the proportion that it matters is in direct relation to the ranking of your school. In other words, if you get at all P's at Harvard as a 2L it will matter much less than if you went from top 5% to median at a T30.

That blog post is epic.

If you haven't heard of him, apparently he is a really well known poster on this board. That link is from his first blog (which is pretty good) but he started another one recently about his experience working as a recent law grad working in retail over the holidays. It is pretty epic: --LinkRemoved--

You're right, counselor, at least one poster has claimed that he or she received a no offer purportedly due to a grade drop. The probative value of this fact is roughly zero.
