lots of the V20 also tend to be grade snobby

If you believe that, then you are a gunner who is rationalizing your lack of fun during your 2L and 3L years. Also, there are only two approaches to 2L/3L: (1) studying in a library 14 hours a day the entire semester, or (2) not studying at all until three days before your final. [/thread]



said it cuz I'm a junior who recently lateraled

got shut out of V20ish cuz of, in not insignificant part, shtty LS/GPA

Could you really learn a class in 3-4 hours? Like no reading or anything before that? I thought I was a pretty good slacker but damn that's impressive

You can if you get a decent old outline and are only shooting for a B (at a school where the curve is somewhere between an A- and a B+, like most t14s after 1L year). I mean all you have to do is write something half way coherent to get a B at a t14. If you write about how you found a unicorn in your locker after taking a bunch of acid, you'll probably still get a C or C+ :lol:

I had a 7-hour exam that I studied for 2 hours for before downloading the exam.

That said, don't let your GPA fall massively your 3L year, there's always a chance you'll regret it.
