If it makes you feel better, some of the posters are probably not 100% truthful.
I'm not so sure of this. I think people that get good grades are simply more likely to post them. I find the prospect that people would lie about them on a mostly anonymous internet forum pretty weird. What would anyone have to gain from that?
I also think the TLS type is more likely to be realistically engaged in law school, as people who post on here are automatically going to be more obsessive: after all, they're spending many hours of free time chatting about and researching the very subject. There's a mentality that you catch from this place that many students don't automatically have before they enter the fray. And I think it's a pretty useful mentality, although it does induce some panic (which is also good in a way). It might be a bit of self-selection, or it might be a bit of the fact that TLS actually has some very good resources and advice. It's probably a bit of both, but if someone were able to do a scientific study, I wouldn't be surprised in the least bit if the median TLS poster was significantly above median in their grades.
