If the one who sets the curve sets it a 90 and you get a 70.
If you want to only be #2 at the worst, try boxing. I hear guys end up #2 all time! :(


I don't know what school you go to but I have never heard of a law school that curves this way.


Its his own private school. The class of 2013 only had 2 people in it so obviously being #2 really sucks and puts you at the bottom of the class.

Seriously though, I have no idea what you're talking about. 2.0 and C's will get you to be #2? Being ranked #2 in your entire class is bad? Are you insane?

This is because law schools don't curve, technically, they just fit the grades to a distribution. what that guy is saying is an actual curve based on averages
