Grades Perspective and 1L Summer

Buffalo Wings & Vodka joins the chorus of blawggers consoling themselves and each other about the disappointment that too often comes with grades. Mr. Buffalo—who has an impeccably stellar GPA himself and is only joining this chorus out of a desire to help those less fortunate*—offers advice aimed at 1Ls who are concerned that their low grades might prevent them from getting a job, to which he says: Don't worry, you've got a semester to raise your GPA and the first summer job isn't all that important, anyway. Mr. Buffalo concludes:
Mainly, remember that it's only law school. Have some fun. Hell, after a semester, you probably don't even want to be a lawyer anymore. So why stress?

Dear the Folks at Blawg Wisdom,

I take issue with the above wording, as it suggests that I am in need of consolation after receiving my grades. This inaccuracy belies both my astronomical GPA and my magnanimous intentions in posting an essay meant to soothe the aching hearts and troubled minds of my 1L readers.

I expect a correction immediately, and am prepared to iniatiate legal action if such a remedy is not forthcoming.

Also, it sucks total ass to be at the library this early on a Saturday.

Dear Mr. Buffalo and Blawg Wisdom Readers,

The Folks at Blawg Wisom apologize most profusely for any suggestion that Mr. Buffalo's own GPA was anything less than astronomical, or that Mr. Buffalo's intentions were anything less than magnanimous. The Folks at Blawg Wisdom humbly beg Mr. Buffalo's forgiveness if we have given anyone any other impression. We have corrected our post to more accurately reflect the facts of the case. Please accept our apologies. And send money.


The Folks at Blawg Wisdom

p.s.: The Folks at Blawg Wisdom are not at the library, but our noses are buried deep in fed courts reading, and yes, the dismaying similarity to this "sucking ass" of which you speak had certainly crossed our minds.
