What goes around, comes around.

February 3, 2011

It's not surprise to anyone that when grades came out things would change a bit. As 1L's we're told that grades mean everything, that they not only determine your rank within your class, but they determine your summer clerkships and basically the rest of your life. I don't know about you, but that sounds like a bunch of BS if you ask me. It's interesting to see the mood/vibe change after grades came out. Those who weren't very outgoing first semester all of a sudden have a new stride in their step. They're the 'known' smart ones. Picture this, they prance around in their suits, which if any of you have seen what law school students classify as suits... they're terribly ugly. So, they prance around, nose in air, avoiding all the "scum" who got lower grades then they did. They absolutely refuse to talk to anyone who isn't in the top 10 percent of the class, and when someone gets something wrong in class, they raise their hands, with only two fingers (cuz that's cool) and answer, in a pretentious voice, like they're smarter than our profs. If you haven't caught on yet, they really piss me off, and since I can't say anything to their face without getting the rep of being a bitch, I thought what I better place to vent than here. So here's my love-letter to all those do-gooders out there.
Dear, you-know-who, 
News flash top 10-percent, when you're sitting in a library 10 years from now because you don't have the personality to talk to a wall, let alone an interviewer, I'll be a partner in the firm you could only dream of, sitting in my high-rise office building, because although I didn't get in the top 10-percent of my class, I'm outgoing, personable, and was nice to people. Not only do I have a high-paying job, but I managed to graduate law school with a boyfriend and best friends. So enjoy your boring library researcher position. I'll make sure to send you a post-card from my vacation in Bora Bora. 
Oh, and P.S. you know what I'll be when I graduate law school, even though I wasn't in the top 10-percent? I'll be a badass lawyer and you'll still be you. 
Sincerely, your future boss. 
So, I'm sorry if you're one of those people, and this little 'vent-sesh' rubbed you the wrong way, but maybe it's something you should hear. Being nice to people is going to get you a lot further than pushing us around, because remember bitches, what goes around comes around.
