2L grades

Postby articsplash » Tue Mar 08, 2011 10:27 pm

I have pretty good grades at T20ish law school and landed a decent SA position with a regional office of an nlj250 firm. I had a pretty good fall 2L, except for one exam, which I took under the weather. My GPA dropped about .08 as a result. Is this something to worry about come summertime?

I don't think that's the kind of a drop an employer would be worried about.

(1) This question has been asked repeatedly.

(2) The answer remains the same - unless you have a substantial change in GPA, you have nothing to worry about. Even with a substantial change, it would probably require an egregious change to make a huge difference.

(3) A rounding error change in GPA is not a substantial change.

Stop bumping and chill.

Yeah, take a breather. If you search you will find about a million threads with this as the topic, general consensus, no one really has any idea. But .08 is not a huge drop that I think you should be agonizing over.
