A few days ago, first-semester 1L grades were released at my top-25 law school, where I'm paying sticker. My jaw dropped when I found out that I'm well below median. What now?
I guess my next course of action should be somewhere between dropping out ("If you're not at Harvard/Yale/Stanford, and you're not in the top 10 percent, forget about it!") and not caring at all ("First-year grades really aren't a big deal at all!")
Any advice from someone who's not a fellow 1L of mine?
