This statement actually makes perfect sense. Law school coursework has far more to do with litigation than corporate work. It's not outrageous to think people whose interests and talents skew toward litigation will tend to do better in law school.


trying to rationalize your own shortcomings?

I doubt the number of people going into law school wanting to do corporate is miniscule. Unless you have a parent who was a transactional lawyer, barely anyone coming into law school even knows what corporate work entails.

Maybe for the K-JD set. However, a ton of people actually work before going to school and have quite a good idea of what corporate work entails.

And to preempt any BS assumption about me in light of this post—I will be doing litigation.
