Yup. I did well, but got rocked in Torts which pulled my gpa down to a 3.3x.. no idea how that happened. Oh well, I hated that class anyway. I'm entertaining dropping out... but thats a different story.
Don't say these things to me. Please don't. (I was thinking about a JD/MSW, but not because of my grades. Well, at least not yet because of my grades. Please, Contracts, please be something good!)
Is the measuring/grading/curving getting to you? It's relentless, and it's the only thing I honestly dislike about law school. The material itself is fascinating to me, and I don't want to leave, but I find myself wondering what it would be like to be a therapist. A joint degree might be perfect. If there are no legal jobs out there, I want to have options, and I know you also want to do something in the public interest.
Its not the grades... I didn't expect any better than median really (people are ridiculously smart here, and I bet a F-dom too, ugh). Thing is, I don't really find law interesting at all. Its sort of boring, and I tend to be a really social person which may not fit too well in the profession. I'm thinking of careers that would be more people focused, and well researching, writing and editing down the word count.
