If you did all that crap you'd likely be more prepared than the majority of kids at a T14 too. Median pwnage is still a decent possibility no matter how well prepared if you're not good at writing law school exams.

Drop out/retake/reapply probably still your best option if you want a job that requires a high GPA.

Transfer up is the plan. And I agree with the exam point, however.

Good luck on your exams

Tier 3 1L here too brah. Similar question came to mind also, actually. However, I don't really care to ask or know, as that can just mess w your head more. do your thing, and know you gave it all you possibly could--let the chips fall where they may

FWIW: I credit a bunch of my success to TLS threads. I was at a TTT in Florida and at the end of 1L was accepted to transfer to many top schools. During 1L I read some 1L guides on here, took stuff seriously, read and briefed every case, took practice exams in mid October of first semester. Basically Arrow's guide and other sticky threads. Came out ranked 3rd in the class. Transferred........got tons of OCI's and ended up with a solid offer (though not from OCI) at a mid-size firm before I even started 3L. I don't think I'm a "naturally smart" person but in law school you can overcome about 60%-70% of the other kids just by working hard......to get the top 10% at a tier 1 likely takes hard work plus a little bit of natural talent. I've straight up booked classes merely by reading everything and giving a solid week to studying in the end of the semester.
