We were debating about the "Curriculum B" thing... What do you think about it? Where could we find more info? Does it affect in some way job placement or whatever else?
I wasn't in Section 3 (curriculum B), so someone who was in it will be a better source. But I knew several people who were. You take equivalent classes to the 1L curriculum but it has more of a theory-based bent. It tends to be more public interest people for some reason, and also tends to be more of a "liberal" group of students (though that's anecdotal and honestly doesn't really matter). I don't think it will affect your job prospects at all; like I said, the curriculum is really equivalent to the normal 1L curriculum except the course titles are different ("theory and process" instead of "civil procedure," or something to that effect) and you'll have more ~theoretical~ discussions in class.
Also anecdotal, but section 3 tends to have a higher percentage of gunnery types.
tl;dr: it doesn't really matter. Sign up if you want to, it won't affect your job prospects in a negative way.
