Q: I am a 2007 grad recently admitted to the bar. I went to a top 50 school but, admittedly, have poor grades. I’ve been out of law school for almost a year now and have been unable to land any sort of full-time law firm position. At what point do I just give up? I know my situation is nowhere near unique. I’ve spoken to a good dozen people who are facing this exact same problem.

A: First, congratulations on becoming a member of the bar. Second, you are correct about being similarly situated as other recent graduates. Third, you probably would not have submitted a question if you were ready to give up on finding a position.
