I'm just wondering, with your experiences in law school, are 1L grades as important as they try to make it out to be? I see people freaking out about grades, etc. I was thinking, what's the point? You can slack off and get C's and you won't flunk out or anything. Sure, you won't get a job at a big-ass firm making six figures, but what if I don't want to do that anyway? I know I don't want to be a lawyer for long (just long enough to pay off the debt, and that won't be long at all even if I make 60,000 a year or something modest like that). Law review? Nah, not for me. And moreover, a graduate at the bottom of his class, who passes the Bar, is still a lawyer, just like the valedictorian (who passed the Bar, obviously). Really, if I'm fine with C's or whatever, should I really be freaking out? I know there's the curve, but a C is at the bottom of the curve (the median is a B, so most people will get a grade in the B range). Only thing I'd like to get is a GPA of 2.4 or above, cuz if I get anything below 2.4 but above 2.0, I will be put on academic supervision. (Below 2.0 and you "flunk out" so to speak).
