Hey guys... I am super devastated right now. I'm in year two studying a non-law degree (with a year abroad so its four years in total). I plan to start my vacation scheme applications next semester, which is the first semester in my year three, penultimate year.
Being a lawyer is really my dream. But city law firms require good grades (they are very explicit on this, as what they say on open days), and American JD again require good GPA.
However, I really screwed up year 2 grades. I worked extremely hard and yet still did a really bad job on exams and courseworks. I have no one to blame for real.
I'm honestly devastated. Has my 'legal journey' just ended before it even started?
I got good grades in IB diploma (42 total), and a 1st raw average in year one. but now, I am praying for a 2:1 in year 2, and the range I think I'm gonna get is high 2:2 to low 2:1. I've been to several commercial law open days this year, and every firm is super inclusive as long as you have good grade in whatever you study.
Guys please help me out😭 can I still apply for vac scheme this year?
