Yeah, I've heard that before..... blow me.
I feel terrible for the people who let their career define them. Okay, maybe you won't get that super cool professorship after rocking a solid-C 1L year. But you know what? You'll be fine. I think it makes more sense to try to set yourself apart from your classmates to make yourself more marketable within a particular legal niche. It's the people who said "oh i dunno, i just love the law" when asked why they chose to attend law school who need to worry, regardless of their grades.
agreed. The market is shit, Biglaw (discovery, paperwork, etc.) is going to India... why worry so much for opportunities that are flying to a substantially cheaper locale?
