I'm a little confused by your post. Given your a 2L, employers wouldn't really need to look at your transcript would they? Depending on when you applied, 2/3 of your classes, and possibly 100% of your grades, are already known.
But either way, that is interesting to know. Are you applying to firms?
I didn't say I wanted real world experience. I meant "Real World Experience" in terms of someone who has gone through this situation, not a 1L who heard from his cousin's cousin that the classes you take matter.
However, to your point, my school has two clinics--neither in an area I'm interested in.
Well when I applied for OCI of course it was just my first year grades. I didnt get anything from that. However since then I have continued to apply to firms and other organizations, got an internship in-house with a corporation for 2L summer.
All I meant is that few places asked for transcripts, and ones that didn't say anything about it, even though my first semester of 2L year was: two seminar classes and two clinics. No substantive classes or exams.
My transcript for applications made this semester also included a list of this semester's classes, with one typical substantive class- federal tax, and then clinics and seminars.
I was never asked about my transcript.
