Met the new Dean yesterday at Orienation. Small guy. Didn't come off as the most self-assured man either. Gave me the impression of a timid 1L entering law school yet making an effort introducing himself to the new people in his life.
He told us how his dream job was to work with the NLRB (met him sitting next to the Labor and Employment Law table that Monica was manning) but once he received the lowest grade of law school career in that class he decided a new course in his life was in order.
One "bad grade" and I guess that's how he ended up at SWLAW all those years later.
