1L grade waiting thread

Postby D. H2Oman » Tue Dec 14, 2010 5:55 pm

The goal of this of thread is public shaming when grades come out. So come on in and talk some shit about how you nailed it.


Only predictions in the A range or otherwise cocky/douchey comments go in the OP or anything else I feel like including


Hall of future shame

Sogui-Though not yet the recipient of any actual law school grades. Sogui has lectured 2L's+3L's on the proper way to study for and take a law school exam:

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=141126&start=75

and also attempted to rewrite American contract law:

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=140851


Here's to you Sogui, keep doing what you do.

List of Future Shame
D. H2Oman- A Contracts, A- Con Law
GeneralTso-A's in every class "fuck everyone at my school, i'm the fucking man"
Evilxs- A's Crim+Civ Pro+ Legal research
Motedust- "Crushed Contracts"
BarbellDreams- A range in Contracs
Omerta- A in torts, A- Civ Pro
NDirish2010- A- Crim
YamiR6- A- Torts, A Lawyering
Chicagolaw2013- Dominated torts and a fake class that doesn't count
Missinglink- A- Civpro, A Legal writing
Jcougar- A Property, A Contracts, A- LR
The Briatharen- Pwned some class I've never heard of
IAFG- BAC= .30, likely mental breakdown
Tywebb- A in torts, he typed almost twice as many words as the next highest person in the class (apparently he went around and asked for everyone's word count) Also predicting and A- on an exam he hasn't taken yet.
usuaggie- A- Torts
Gatriel- "A in every class or I'm voting Obama in 2012"
Goosey, A- Legal Writing, A in tortsCiv Pro, Either way still gonna start the most random threads in this forum next semester
weee- "No predictions, but if I'm top 1/3 the whole thread gets my entire stash of NYGRRRL pictures"
Charles Barkley- After an Olympic Dream Team victory over Angola, in which they won 116-48, Charles got into a physical altercation with a member of Angola towards the end of the game, afterwards he says: "Somebody hits me, I'm going to hit him back. Even if it does look like he hasn't eaten in a couple weeks. I thought he was going to pull a spear on me."
SmittenMitten- She didn't make any predictions, but I predict a lot of stress induced vomiting and migranes
Stanford4me- Hopefully he did well enough to transfer so we can get this name issue solved once and for all

This kind of attitude is while you'll be getting straight C's. I'm not even a 1L, this thread is for next year.

If your grades dont come till late are you guys just applying with resume and cover letters that state that grades will be available upon request once they are into the law school.

Last year, I used this:

"I will promptly forward my law school transcript after first semester grades are posted."

Checking in. I nailed Crim law and Civ Pro. Contracts I ran out of time before fully covering last topic, but it did get quick coverage. Not sure how that will pan out. Lot of folks didn't even identify the issue so I feel a little better about that.

Torts is coming up and then the month long wait for grades. I'll take the public thrashing if I don't get the A's in crim law and civ pro. 8)

I predict this thread will slowly digress into a pile of miserable and suicidal posts by the end of December.

I've REALLY been talking up my contracts exam. Anything under an A- and I will get a LOT of shit from people in my section.

hahaha the wait sucks. it's worse than waiting for the LSAT. then you get to wait for callbacks/rejections/offers for OCI, which was worse than waiting for 1L grades. enjoy this.

I like how my standards slowly changed throughout the exam period. At first I told myself "All I want is top third", then it became "Please just be above median," and now it's "for love god just don't give me the lowest grade in the class."

Anything lower than an A in any of my classes and I will be dropping out.

What a crazy K's exam. Most questions had strict 100 word limit, and there were a number of questions with a 25 word limit. I feel like I put down the conservative, go-to argument way too often and didn't manage to distinguish myself. I don't think I did poorly, because I feel like I put out a pretty good response to everything. But its really hard to distinguish when your answers are limited to 4 or 5 sentences at most.
