Should I drop out?

Postby AnonUser777 » Wed Jan 18, 2017 11:33 pm

Just finished first semester. Grades B, B, B-, C+, putting my GPA at 2.73. In order to raise my GPA to be just above median, I would need two A's and two A-s this semester.

Currently attending T14, male AA URM. I'm assuming a career in biglaw is out of the question now?

As an AA male you're not shut out of biglaw. You're gonna have an uphill battle but firms really want diversity and the number of AA males in the T14 is low. You really need to focus on your grades this semester and try to get your GPA as high as possible. Meet with your professors, go over your exams, talk to upperclassmen and try everything you can to learn how to write better exams.
