Her casebook for Crim is twice the size of most everyone else's for the same edition!

Idk ... it's extra thick paper but identical in all other ways.

Congratulations! Every A is worth celebrating.


Second grade.....A

Holy @#%#

Don't even care how bad I'm going to get killed on my third, which is the class I feel least confident in


Last grade: A+

At this point pretty sure the registrar has my identity confused with someone else


Wow! And here I was being happy with my A-/B+/B+. Congrats.


I mean you should be happy with that. You're above median

I am, honestly. It's a minor miracle I managed a B+ in Torts seeing as how I was a walking disaster in that class all semester.

I'm interested in gov't longterm, but the quickest route into the USAO appears to be biglaw (aside from DOJ Honors, anyway).

I am, but I'm more afraid that I'll be able to do more if I go big law first. I don't want to, but a lot of PI orgs don't (and can't afford to) hire new grads, so it often seems that big law is the only short term option. Hopefully someone can tell me I'm dead wrong.

Is clerk -> USAO not a legitimate route?

Huh, the people who were somewhat noticeably bad have gotten a lot better post-grades, there's really only one guy (not in section) that truly makes me :roll: - probably the first I've noticed that asks questions solely to show everyone how smart he is, in that the tone of asking suggests that he already knows the answer to the 10 stanza Q anyway

fyi it's your throne they're gunning for :lol:

USAO person says they almost never hire anybody without at least 5 yrs experience. Obviously clerking won't hurt, but you have to be doing something for those years, and biglaw is aiite. A lot of people go to USAO from county prosecutor and such too though.

The people who are really bad are the type to rationalize away mediocre grades. Some of them ended up around the top 10-20% too though, so that makes them way worse because their entitlement just doubled. To be clear, I'm not saying mediocre grades make you stupid, but if you try to hang onto the delusion that you're smarter than everyone despite mediocre grades, then you need a lobotomy.

I think what people say about their grades and what they're actually thinking are different, probably they're just posturing. I don't understand what kind of person who was median or worse who would want to talk to other people about it unless they went somewhere that still has good outcomes there

IDK, when I talk about grades it's almost always super general, I really do believe there's a stigma here re: talking about specific grades but maybe it's just an everyone else thing?
