1Ls: Bouncing back from less than stellar grades

Posted by Alan Childress

In law schools, it's that time of year when many students are (understandably) concerned about their first set of law grades, and professors are beginning the educational process of deconstructing all this for curious students.  The truism that it is a marathon and not a sprint may be cold comfort, yet it is true (hence a truism).  Here is a good post on the subject from a law student at the Frugal Law Student weblog, and a somewhat painful endorsement of that advice from The Shark, a cal law blog.

I am living proof that it is a marathon and not a sprint. I was so burned out after my first year that I almost didn't make it through my second one. I'm just fortunate that my GPA did not suffer more than it did. I can only repeat the advice that I never took: (1) be preparred for the long haul and (2) take professors, not courses.
