The more I think about it, the more sure I am that I got bottom 1/3 in civpro. Median in everything else, except possibly bottom 1/3 in contracts. Good thing everyone at T14s is guaranteed a job, right???
Discretionary C in civpro, medianish in CLR, no clue about anything else. Prob bottom third secure.
Remember when TLS c/o 2013 was all convinced they were going to be top 10%? lols
I wouldn't be totally shocked if I were in the top 5% or so, but I'm also willing to have my expectations smashed. If I were to bet even money, though, I'd put that point at top 20%.
I feel like I did the best I could have done, and that's all that matters. I'd like to know my grades, but at the same time, I'm not as anxious as I felt waiting for my LSAT score. On the LSAT, a lot is based on luck or your mentality on one certain day. On law school exams, it seems like either you understand the material fluidly or you don't, and therefore you can better predict how you did.
It's hard to know, though. I had no midterms, so I could only compare what I did on exam day to how I did on practice exams with answer checksheets and/or model answers. And I did pretty well on those, and I feel like I did even better on the finals. Thinking back on the exams and talking to some who had taken the same, I haven't found anything major that I've missed on any exam.
I really don't mean to sound arrogant or dismissive, but I feel like I did my best, and that's all that I could have asked of myself. And if I end up below median, than I have nothing to feel sorry about...and that's just life...I will struggle on.
