Thank you for such a quick response, I really appreciate it.

Will the B be a bright line negative in hiring (even past 1L summer)? It wasn't my best academic moment but I know exactly what I did wrong and was expecting it. I know that 1L SA hiring is super competitive so I didn't think I had any chance with a B, but I'll definitely continue applying.


It won’t help, but there’s not always “bright line negatives” in decisions, especially if you’re applying g to 1L diversity SAs. You’re a median CCN diversity candidate. You should apply until you find something or you’ve applied to every firm you can find in the markets where you have ties and interest and have struck out. 1L SAs are all about hustle and luck. You can control the hustle, and just have to hope for a little luck.

Dude absolutely apply. If I were a betting man, I would put money on you snagging something.
