On not expecting your trainees to be in perfect mental health, a thread:
I debated disclosing my grades, but because science twitter is so into toxic, over-achiever culture, I'm gonna do it. It's not like I'll ever get into a PhD program so what the hell. I also worry about someone on twitter getting pissed and weaponizing this, but the only
time we seem to talk about grades is to humble-brag. "LoL I oNlY gOt FoUr As ThIs SeMesTeR". So anyway, here are mine, and they're very much a reflection of how I was doing each semester, good or bad.

Can I get a good law firm job despite horrendous grades?

This is a very frequently asked question. And the answer is yes.

Your grades are relevant at best when you are applying for your first job.

If you are being asked the same in your 2nd and 3rd job, then you must be doing something terribly wrong. If it is relevant even after that, you must be living on another planet, not this one.
And of course, such questions would be asked by either a law student or a greenhorn lawyer with very little understanding of how the profession works.

I do not remember my grades. Neither do most other successful lawyers you will meet.
