The fact that you got a random C+ is shitty.


Ya I so thought I ace'd 2nd semester and was ready to claim the one C+ was a huge outlier (with the CALI they might have bought it), broke my mind to see that second one, thought I hit the wrong semester.

explain this for OCI and I send you a Christmas turkey (meaning ANY possible explanation that wouldn't just make it look worse)

When the interview starts, take out your penis. Interviews are only 20 minutes long and hopefully the penis thing will eat up enough time that there's only time to discuss the A's.

True story: One student responded to 'How are you going to explain these grades?' with 'How are you going to explain why your firm is all over the newspapers and abovethelaw for being poorly managed?'. I'm not clear on whether he got a callback.
