Sorry for hijacking your thread. You only have one month left before 1L.
I feel so sorry for you.
oh no, from an earlier post i thought you guys were rising 3Ls like me
however you can still feel sorry for me because i am now an empty husk of a person who had his money, confidence in his future, and will to go on sucked dry by the black widow(er) hastings
Lol no I'm still having that pre oci optimism. When I strike out at oci I'll become bitter like all the 3L posters here.
yeah i remember i was all excited to show how i special i was because i had all these extracurriculars like being an inaugural board member of the ip club, declining CLQ to join STLJ, having an IP-related unpaid summer internship, and planning to (and passing) the patent bar. when i went to a meet the employers fair, the recruiter told me to "do these things x y z to show your enthusiasm
" and i was like "oh ok!" and actually did tailor a few activities toward my preferred area before bidding. ofc no one ever mentioned how grades are king. come interview time (gotten thru lottery) i saw that she circled my gpa with a question mark. i wonder how hard she tried to contain her laughter during the 20 minutes. man i wasted so much time ranking my bids and tailoring my cover letters (who actually reads them anyway)
i am almost having anxiety attacks as i type or for some reason adrenaline won't stop flowing; i'm on edge for no reason lately and having to tell myself not to give up. "networking" came to a dead end after being referred to someone else for the 8th time, the assignment at work right now is frustrating and truly only the intern can do because no one else would do this, i don't like my 1-hr commutes, and i keep making mistakes elsewhere because my brain is scattered or something. made a fool of myself in front of the executive board of my journal just this morning. haven't felt this rock bottom in a long time as if i have nothing redeeming about myself at this moment. regretting the moment the thought "what about law school" popped in my head at my prior job around 2009. forgive me if i don't have the strength to capitalize my shit in every post from now on.
sorry, hope i didn't party poop the 2L circle. you guys are in the clear if you're one of the top students
