reacting to my law school grades | goodbye to 1L



Reacting to my first year law school grades!

Hi everyone!
Y’all… in terms of how this semester felt, and my stress levels and mental state, this was easily one of the worst semesters of my life. Just being isolated because of covid, away from home and taking con law, which still makes my head hurt. I share a lot on this channel, so I thought it’d be helpful to keep sharing how I am doing.

As usual, I won’t say too much because I don’t want to spoil it, so I’ll just say this, grades do not define you and I still have a lot of work to do for this semester!

Thanks for watching!

  1. I'm a fifth year French law student and seing you opening your results is ME every damn time haha. And don't worry, in this uber difficult field, being average is something you should be grateful about lol :))

  2. You made it out of 1L, and on your way to 2L. Now that you're over the culture shock of 1L, you should do better in your second year. Keep the faith.

  3. I was just watching your video from about a year ago when you were talking about being a background actor and I have a question that I can’t seem to find an answer for but I was thinking what do background actors talk about while shooting? Like in some shows/movies you can see background actors talking to each other and i was just curious on what they were saying.

  4. You got through 1L, don’t be so hard on yourself. Was 2nd semester a lot more difficult or were you burned out? Can you give a “if I could give 1L a do-over” tips video that would be so helpful.

  5. I finished my 2L year in May. It was the absolute hardest year of law school to date, and I did my 1L spring virtually. However, my grades improved quite a bit- so while I won't lie to you and tell you that things get easier, because they simply do not, especially as you factor in law review and other extracurriculars and OCIs, but you adjust and do better as time goes on. It gets harder, but you get better. You have plenty of time to bring your GPA up.

  6. Do they warn the prospective law school students about the reality of the job market? Supply and demand etc? My brother finished second in his class about 26 years ago. He started with Jones-Day which at the time was the second largest firm in the country. He started with 70K. He left after a few years for a job with the state attorney general's office. He's been there ever since. He told me that they wouldn't even talk to you if you weren't in the top 10% of the class. There is a glut of lawyers. If you don't do well enough to get into a big firm you might end up working for less than your cousin who is a delivery driver for UPS! This has been another episode of the harsh realities of life.

  7. Sorry your grades weren’t what you expected! Do you talk about specific grades with your friends or no, is it awkward to talk about bc you’re technically competing?

  8. Average grades do not make you average. I think last semester was hard for so many people. I know I was stressed to the max. Thanks for being real with us and I hope you're already feeling better from when you filmed this. 🥰

  9. I got my law school grades and yeah… they weren’t too crash hot. Like you said, it’s not the end of the world but dude, does it really dampen your mood.

    On top of that – I didn’t get a job I reeeeeally wanted. Ended up crying myself to sleep last night, hahaha (RIP).

    As you (and my current boss says) – it is what it is 🥲

  10. Sorry that your semester didn't go how you wanted it to be. I hope that 2L will treat you better than 1L because I know that you can do it. Take some time away from the negativity and focus on yourself and do something fun while doing your internship during the summer. You got this girl!! Don't ever give up

  11. Sorry your semester didn’t go how you wanted but it was tough. I hope next semester goes better for you with how you feel throughout and how you do. My worst semesters happen when I overwork myself and feel like I’m in a never ending cycle of stress where I don’t even know what to do to not feel stressed so I know going forward I’m going to have to do what I can to avoid that drowning feeling. I hope you’ve come up with some ways to feel better next semester and are able to relax over the summer. I’ve been binging shows lol, probably won’t be able to do it as much when I start school in the fall.
