Slightly below median at a T-20 - How much trouble am I in?

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Jan 20, 2014 3:40 pm

1L - Checking in
2 Bs, 2 B+s

Obviously, I need to do some things differently next semester. That being said, what am I looking at realistically this summer? I have 10+ years of W/E in an area I wouldn't mind practicing in, and I intend to stay in a secondary market close to the school I'm attending. I'm working on developing contacts, and I've been developing relationships with several partners and associates in my home market. I'm more than a little concerned with my grades, but I don't think I'm completely fucked just yet. What say you TLS?

Full ride with spouse covering COL, so basically undergrad debt. (30k)

You're not dead. I was in similar situation, maybe .01 above median and ended up Top 1/3 with SA lined up. Obviously this is anecdotal, but if you're on a full ride, I don't think it's crazy to give it another semester. Just figure out what you did wrong, talk with professors, and grind it out.
