Hearing back from your firm

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Dec 04, 2016 6:47 pm

Have people heard back from their SA firms ? Or should we expect more silence?

It will be mostly silence. You might get a holiday gift and you might be asked to go to a 1L firm mixer if your firm goes to your school in the winter.

Coming up on 2L fall exams and alresdy have summer associate position lined up. How stressed/ much do these grades matter if an individual already has a gig for next summer?

It's worth putting in effort, but not worth stressing.

Worth the extra effort IMO. Grades probably won't matter much/at all, but the better you do 2L, the more you can slack 3L.

Any idea on what kind of impact 2L/3L/overall grades have on lateraling or going in-house?

Why?

Also, could I reach out to my firm to ask if I can start before the official start date? Is there a polite way to ask this?
