Maybe try and do well and this semester. But you've got top grades and are working at a top firm, so it wouldn't concern me.
For someone who's never received below an A/A- and going to a v5, as well. What happened and what should I do to make sure it doesn't happen to me? If you don't mind me asking.
Pretty sure you have to try to get a D. Like skip 1/2 of the classes, never read, and only read a supplement 2 days before exam to get a D. You might get a B if it's a bad class/semester, but I wouldn't worry about "accidentally" getting a D. You'll know if you're gonna get a D.
the joys of HYSB's H/P system... skip all the classes, never read, and only skim an outline the morning of the exam. still get a P.
Well, half the class at Berkeley doesn't get biglaw or a federal clerkship...
It must suck hard to get a P at H, though, when something like up to 60 percent (IIRC) gets an H. They might as well call it Pass/Fail.
