There are several jobs here in Dallas on Symplicity for 1L summer that require grades.

Paying jobs.

You were talking about 2L summer when you said you disagreed with the assertion that if you're a 1L your grades shouldn't determine what type of job you look for? Everyone knows that grades matter for 2L summer; hard to believe you felt the need to reestablish that already well known fact...

Just saying :?

yeah i have been shown the error of my ways since then, since employers have asked me to update them with transcripts. the above-quoted just doesn't happen to be an example of me contradicting myself.

The thing is you should be applying to most of those jobs no matter what your grades are.

congratulations!!!

I have applied to two internships for summer thus far (i know, i know) and one looks at grades [biglaw] while the other does not.

on a side note, would anyone consider 4k for the summer a good deal? I know that a lot of people say that its hard enough getting paid at all for the summer. I'm not so much concerned about the money, because the experience for this particular internship would be amazing, but just wondering if 4k for 1L summer is a good deal or not

I have a really fantastic memory so as soon as I saw your quote in this thread I immediately thought about your nonsensical blow up in the other. Didn't even have to think about it. Glad you've seen the error of your ways hon.

Anyway, old football injuries prevent me from running long distances...I stick to low impact exercise these days.

A lot of stipends are around 4500$ at my school, so that sounds about right.

when i said grades would effect where i targeted, i meant that this semester's grades will decide if i have a realistic shot at DC firms or not.

your memory might be good but your ability to read context isn't so strong.

Thanks again y'all :D.

Also, grades matter for 1L jobs for those of us that don't go to T14's. Well, they matter for us for 2L jobs too, but still.

All silliness aside, even if you don't have what you think are the best grades, you should apply to DC and wherever else anyway. Also as a female, you have the opportunity to take advantage of events like the SEMJF. You get to spend 20 interview bids with a lot of the top firms in NY and DC before your school's OCI even starts. I got 4 offers out of 5 interviews there. A couple before I even got back on campus to start 2L.

For a 1L, 4K isn't bad. It's certainly not biglaw, but it beats unpaid interns with a stick.

theres a 1L internship for biglaw that pays between 800 and 3100 per week depending on which firm you get matched to. super competitive, obviously. :shock: but some people wind up getting 2nd yr offers out of it.

You can't really complain about getting legal experience 1L summer that pays ANYTHING.

Even with a 4.0 you're still an extreme longshot. So again, I'm not sure how grades can affect where you "aim" as a 1L.

Obviously I am being unclear. I meant that waiting on grades is painful because it may influence where I bid as a 2L and therefore which city I end up in long term.

Where'd you hear that? A 2L friend of mine said that they had all their grades back before break ended last year. Ahh I don't want to wait anymore!

After receiving consistent B-s, i find that I had the highest grade on the graded memo in my Section. I would love for this to make sense.
