One teacher at my school didn't get his grades in (for a completely valid reason, he had surgery over break), but the school decided to withhold all of the 1L grades until he does.

My Ks prof has his hip replaced day after semester ended but still got his in apparently. Your school releases all at once? Our's trickle in.

Question: Where are all the T2/TTT/TTTT kids who were confident they could finish in the top 10% at their school because they got waitlisted or accepted at higher ranked schools/were confident in their ability to succeed in law school despite their less than stellar undergraduate track record?

First category (TT). Splitter. Tons of WL's. Took $$ at my State School.
See my other posts ITT :D.

ETA: 1) Yes I know I won the lottery; 2) I know I could be pwnd next semester; 3) I actually chose my school based on where I would be okay with graduating median/below median and figured my chances of actually pulling this off were slim-to-none.

Anyone who's ever been told "no you can't" will make time to show the naysayers that they can and did. It's practically a basic human instinct.

1) Congratulations 2) I'm sure you'll be fine next semester 3) That was good thinking 4) Good luck with transfer apps.

(Splitters don't really count do they? I'm talking about the 154/2.9 kids that went to Seton Hall)

Any sense on what the rankings are like when the curve is 3.0?
My school's "statement on grade normalization" says that 1L has a mandated
curve range of 2.95-3.05. I saw someone earlier on the thread say that 3.2
is around where top third starts is that right? Im at a T2 that's strong in the
immediate region hovering around a 3.2 just trying to stay above the fray.

I get my grades next week, so I'll be sure to let you know... not that I anticipate on being in the top 10%. Not sure I understand why you're opting to be a doucher right now though :?

Yeah, I don't fall into that category. But I don't think most of those people stick around TLS. I'm pretty sure most of us who go to T2's in this thread have $$ and had good reasons for picking our schools. Also, my K's grade could drop me, but I don't think out of the top 10% based on the math (I also have 50% of that grade, so it's not completely blind).

Not being a "doucher." Just pointing out the disproportionate number of TLS is elitist/I know I am going to be top 10%/I was born and bred for success threads. If you went to one of those schools with realistic expectations, you aren't included in that group and that post was not intended to offend you.

Exactly. I really wasn't aiming barbs at any of you guys. I was just making a point (I'll concede that I've obviously failed at that).

Do you really think that anyone can tell you what GPA equals what rank when the only information you've given them is that your school curves to about a 3.0?

If law students knew statistics they wouldn't take out 200K to attend St. Johns.
