You're screwed. You're going to end up working as a paralegal in a public defender's office somewhere in Wyoming.

RELAX! Just take a deep breath and shotgun a FourLoko. You'll be fine.

What's wrong with Wyoming? Beautiful country and folks that like to let people alone.

Improve your grades second semester. You can explain away the C+ in interviews as first semester jitters. Even biglaw lawyers have a C+ every now and then. Just improve your overall GPA and hit up minority job fairs. You will be fine.

You are right. Got offered a summer associate position at a big firm today.
