Reviving this gem because it's grade season, and I'm really curious about how OP did against his idiot classmates :twisted:

Be careful with this kind of thinking. It sort of sounds like the kind of thinking that got you into this position:

If you're going to transfer up, make sure you thoroughly think through your choice(s). Aim for the best school you can get in to (and by "best," I mean that perfect equation of ranking, financial burden, and job opportunity).

Nice job. Assuming a harsh curve, you did really well. Update us on transferring goals. Still wanting to? Hating school less?

Thanks very much, I busted my ass to get those. My school itself is not what bothers me; its my section-mates. There is one particular girl who basicly speaks in eubonics when she is on call. I really don't care when people speak in slang in their personal lives, but in a law school...not cool. But I realized I just had to quit worrying about everybody else and worry about myself. Transferring is definitely still in the cards, not sure yet though, we'll see.

If it gives you a sense of hope, there are 4 or 5 John Marshall refugees at Emory. I think John Marshall was actually the most represented 1L origin school amongst the transfers, followed by Mercer and Florida Coastal.

Average GPA is equivalent to a C+ at my school.

I hate the ABA for allowing threads like this to even exist.

Lol at wanting "a school anywhere in the top 100" so you can have intelligent classmates..... Top 100 means nothing. Chapman has the same quality students as, say, Gonzaga, Southwestern, or U. of San Fran, etc.

Glad to see you're doing well. Do what you did last semester one more time, and you're well on your way.
