Hoffmann told us on the first day that 1Ls performed just as well as 2Ls and 3Ls in the previous year's class.
With that said, I got ravaged in the class despite some good grades in other classes, so...my small piece of anecdotal evidence will not encourage you.
On the other hand, I do think that I was at an advantage going into my first fall final, since I had one under my belt and people who started in the fall were on their first exam. And the did turn out to be my best grade.
Cuts both ways, I'd say. In any case, summer start is a lot of fun.
