the fact that there haven't been a dozen TLS threads asking "I did so-and-so on my exams at GULC am I fucked" provides some indication that maybe the registrar didn't meet the deadline though
Is the general consensus on this that below median is fucked and above top-third is reasonably safe chance at biglaw assuming competent interviewing skills and targeting?
Nah, below median isn't necessarily fucked; like Gray I also know people with 3.1x GPAs who landed a big law gig but you are of course facing an uphill battle with a GPA anywhere in the 3.0 to 3.2 range. You presumably are fucked if you have a sub 3.0 GPA at the end of the year.
Also I know people with good grades (top 1/3+) who came out of oci with nothing. Bad grades can almost always be overcome by experience/personability/networking — but a horrible personality can’t be overcome by even the best of grades.
