I am not saying that they didnt work hard, I think everyone worked very hard, even the people who ended at the bottom of the class. I am saying that by OUT WORKING people, you have a very good chance of putting yourself at least in the top half. Perhaps first year is the one the one were grades are less receptive to just working hard, but 2L and 3L year, hard work pays off more. And since we are talking about just graduating in the top half, OCI is out of the picture. If you know you are bad at regular law school exams, which you are forced to take during 1L year, you can be strategic and take more paper based classes where time/effort has more of an effect on your grade.
This is laughable. Are you a 0L? Out working people doesn't give you a better chance of anything other than having outworked others and possibly knowing the subject better - which does not necessarily translate into top half of the class. Much of grading comes down to spending the right amount of time on a particular issue, typing quickly, and writing well. There is also a random subjective element. And by what measure will you know if you've outworked your classmates?
