Possible to recover????

Postby Blimpo12 » Tue Jan 18, 2011 3:18 pm

Hi just received 2 grades. A-, B, with 1 more pending and this last one I felt least confident about.

Possible to recover from this?? Say I get a B- on the last one how screwed am I?

School- Top 35 (located in NY)

Just say Fordham. Second, check out BCG Attorney Guide for Fordham's grade distribution.

Need more information. What are your goals? Financial situation? Scholarships? How hard did you work last semester?

Goals: originally Biglaw if possible but at this point not happening based on grades.

FInancial Situation: 25k a year scholarship, graduating with minimum debt due to savings built up. (Phew)

At this point goal: get a financially stable job to support my family.

Worked pretty hard toward the end of last semester but i'll be the first to admit that for the first couple of months I was extremely inefficient in the way I studied.(I put in the hours but did not focus on what I should have).
