The 2L and 3L threads both have LOL in the title. First year grades are most important, because when you do OCI this summer that's all you'll have. If you get hired at OCI as an SA, you can blow off 2L, and if they make you an offer at the end of the summer you can blow off 3L as well. That's why we have to grind now, so we don't have to grind later.


I'm a clerkship gunna, so Imma be on the grind 'til the bitter end. CSWS, baby. 8)


Im FT LT JD req employment gunnin. Probs gonna be grindin til the bitter end as well.

Keeping the big picture in mind makes it relatively easy to stay on the grind all of 1L year.

Grindin' ain't easy.

Outlining is soooo much fun!!

In all seriousness, it is fun to go back through my notes and try to make sense of them again.

Yeah 2L will be a joke for me. Though, I havent been serious this semester. March will bring a new era for me... Will start getting back into it! I have a couple 1L positions lined up with firms I will likely end up at (when I graduate) this summer, thought it would motivate me instead I feel like I have no motivation. Wont be funny when they no offer me because of a grades drop...

Fortunately, my guess is they only seek a good faith effort, not a fantastic work product.
