Seriously, though, my goal was to raise my GPA and, failing that, to at least remain constant. Assuming the rest of the class holds steady, I should remain in the top 1/3 or so. With my .01 increase, I might even jump up 2 or 3 people! Or not. You know, depending on how these things work themselves out.
What this means in terms of job searching remains mildly unknown. A quick scan of the big local firms suggests that I need to be in the top 10% if I want to have any kind of shot. As that seems unlikely, I guess I'm going to have to start looking at mid-sized firms. I'm certain that I'll still try throwing my hat in the ring, particularly with firms I feel I might have a vague in with (e.g. Foulston, Ogletree, and Lathrope), but I don't have high hopes at the moment.
Anyway, I'll keep you posted on how that works out, once rankings are released.
In other news, we appear not to have a boss at work anymore. The head student clerk is now, for all practical purposes, in charge. I'm not really sure how to handle or define that, but I think I'm ok with it. Hopefully this won't lead to my spending all of my time playing spider solitaire.
