However, this semester I made my best grades ever, and feel compelled to share that with you all. Whoo! Ha.
I even managed to make a B+ in Business Organizations.... How in the hell that happened, I will never know. That class was ridiculously hard and is a legit curved class. Sooo I make better grades in classes about corporate law than my criminal law classes.... this bodes well for my future.
However - in my humble 3L opinion, grades still don't matter for shit. The kids who have been making all A's since we were 1L's still don't have jobs for after we graduate. The kids who have been making C's since we were 1L's still dont' have jobs for after we graduate (yup, that's me! but hey! I got a B+ in Biz Orgs!!! B+++++!!!!!!!!).
The moral of the story (especially for you 1L's and 0L's) is simple: Don't try.
The kids who do the bare minimum and go out drinking and have fun (me!) have the same employment prospects as those who bust their asses in the miserable law library all day and night.
And when we are ALL unemployed 6 months from now, the kids who spent all of law school in the library are going to be way behind me as far as what bars to hang out at and who has drink specials on what night (hell0, we'll be unemployed! deals are a must!), etc.
And on that note, I'm off to spend my Saturday at CASA volunteer orientation. I figure if I'm not employed I might as well figure out some other ways to occupy my time/make the world a better place, etc.
