I wouldn't worry about it quite yet. I got a disappointment on my first exam like that, and my next two grades were good enough to cancel it out.

Yesterday one of my profs emailed us a long email discussing the distribution (75% some form of B's, 25% some form of A's) and said "the registrar will soon be releasing your Civ Pro grades."

My entire day became refreshing the grades page...and it never posted. Neurosis ftw!

You got an A-, so you must be doing something right at least.

Ouch. Happens every year though. Happened to me. If you want to rebound next semester, I'd suggest less "studying" together and more reviewing practice problem answers about 1.5 months before exams begin. You'll need to rebound if you had your eyes on a firm gig from your school, but just take it easy. Like Rad said, the A- is at least a good sign.

Do you by any chance go to a school that curves to 1.9?

What is the 2.5? My school has C at 2.0, C+ at 2.25, and B- at 2.75, so we can't even get a 2.5 grade...

Not necessarily true, my prepubescent friend. Many large PD's offices aren't necessarily all that interested in high grades as long as you display interest in their type of work from the beginning of lawl school and take classes which indicate your desire to practice in that area. (This isn't true for all, just for some.)

lot of smaller law firms don't care about GPA as much. if you're fine making 50-60k a year doing shiTTTlaw, then GPA probably doesn't matter that much. what school range?

Do you not use letter grades? Just numbers? What school is this?

Assuming he can get a job at one of these firms, which is definitely not a viable assumption.
