This is what happens when people who don't know shit about legal hiring (Black Hat, in case that wasn't painfully obvious) attempt to give any sort of meaningful conjecture about the job market. You're a 1L, dude. Stop acting like you know anything at all, because the reality is that OP is in a very bad spot right now. I think I put it best the last time Black Hat was pulling terrible advice out of his ass:

I thought it was well established that once you decide to apply to law schools, you become an expert on everything from the LSAT to law school exams and legal hiring. On your first day of law school, you look down upon ignorant 0Ls as know-nothing douches and teach them a lesson or two about how OCI works and explain the value of prestige. Once you begin preparing for OCI, you discuss partnership tracks and wonder if a v20 would be lucky enough to bring you on as a partner after a few years at a v5 or should you only meet with v10 (must maintain that prestige at all times)

Can't wait for Black Hat to begin discussing how easy it is to become a partner if you work at top firms

OP - I don't know what I would do if I was you, except you should absolutely foe Black Hat or otherwise avoid reading anything she posts because what minimal merit there is to her writing is vastly outweighed by the metric fuckton of crap she's spewing. Best of luck to you and props for being super mature about it.

Black Hat is a man. He "served our country" and is currently attending the University of South Carolina (which I will not refer to as USC because it's not THE USC) as a 1L. He deliberately edited his application profile because he is an attention-seeking twit.

I can read this in a couple ways, but if you are using this as some sort of shot at servicemembers, stop. If not, my bad.

Ah, I see that now. I actually meant that I don't know which branch he was in, so I just quoted him.

ETA: But now that I looked it up, he was a Marine.

No one has belittled the OP. People giving their honest opinion that dropping out now is the best course of action is not belittling the OP. Some might say they're being negative, others might say they're being realistic, but it neither case does it belittle or insult the OP.

Let me explain my previous response.

Although Blackhat is completely wrong (public interest hiring is NOT easy), grades are simply not as make or break as they are in private practice. My experience has been that experience, REFERENCES, and networking (just by knowing people in the field) goes a long way in getting you a job. I had various job prospects because I had a very long track record of public service and I had really good recommendations who went out of their way to help me land a job. Having said that, it is a big risk, only you know how much you want to practice law. Good luck!

I was just trying to give the OP some support, rather than just dumping all over him. No one can argue that the OP is in a very tight spot. However, all the negativity/callousness is soul crushing. There are ways to give advice with both the glass half full approach and the glass half empty approach.

It isn't necessary to belittle someone to get your point across.


Stop being a coward and editing your posts. Let your idiocy live on.

Or someone starting QFPing this fucking guy.

I edit all my posts once I'm done with the conversation. Also, I don't know what QFPing means.


This is so dumb.

trolling is bad. this is a serious thread for serious advice, not half-baked notions backed up with flimsy anecdata from fantasyland.

tbh the grades are ok to get prosecution at a local possibly even state level. honestly the thing that's bothering me is you're paying sticker when I wouldn't do prosecution unless AUSA for that debt regardless of my grades.
