Didn't really mean you. I am concerned some of ya'll might underestimate how many of your peers lurk here... And, if they are, this thread's title is gonna draw their attention.

Since I haven't seen this entirely cleared up elsewhere, is CLR curved or not?

Good enough. Though telling my friends at Penn and Michigan this and having them go "wait yours isn't pass/fail!?!?" is disconcerting enough

What's yours? Ours is 1400. I was at 1750 last night, then axed a case I decided was useless analysis, and am now sitting at 1471.

Umm, just for clarification: CLR isn't technically curved, but all of the CLR profs still follow the curve or grade below it.

Ours is pages, not words. It can only be six pages double-spaced, and I'm at 2.75 single spaced, and I'm just finishing up the last element. Sooo yeah.

1400? Ours is 2000. We had a 1200 limit for the ungraded one. I don't think I could get this done in 1400.

Well what is covered in your memo? Ours is a statement of facts, a thesis paragraph, and 2 out of 4 elements.

Our next memo will be a rewrite that includes the other 2 elements,questions presented, and conclusion.

Ours is just the discussion section, so a thesis paragraph, the 2 elements in question, and a conclusion. Memo 2 adds question presented, fact section, and applicable statute along with a more in depth conclusion.

So a comparable amount of stuff but 600 words more? Jealous.
