Law school Bs feel like college Fs.

This


Well, I ended up with 4 B+s.

Not too bothered, but I wish I would have had an A and a B- instead so I could pass/fail the latter.

No, but I also go to a B- law school so it all evens out.

The grading curve in my legal profession class was 30 A's, 23 A-'s, 4 B+'s (3.82 curve). I got a B+. LOL

Very unhappy with this semester. Finally got last grade. After transferring, I expected overall grades to drop some, but I made a big mistake by starting with large gunner courses that sounded important, but that I had zero interest in. Ended up with a B+, B, and B-. The B- is what really stings, but I doubt I will get no offered for one B-. I am sure I will do much better this semester. Last semester, I was behind for months and never caught up due to the transfer and job search. This semester, I have all the motivation in the world, and no reason to fall behind. As long as I can make last semester look like an anomale, I'm sure it will be fine come offer/no-offer time.

somewhat going off of above poster, transfer to T20, relatively happy with my grades except for one class (B, others were A, A-, B+ in substantive classes). Have SA for next summer at IP firm and the B was in the only class i cared about, patent law; not sure what went wrong because I felt like I knew it very well. Kind of worried-how much does this matter (or how bad does it look) for this summer? Obviously going to do everything I can work-wise to do a good job, but I feel like an idiot about it and it's bugging me.

Similar thing happened to me last year. Don't sweat it - it was a bogus MC exam.

+1. got a "P" in patents (similar to a B at other schools, well kind of) and no one cared. most firms do not care about which course had which grade; they focus on the overall trend.

Most patent law classes are in total disarray because of the AIA. I wouldn't sweat it. You will know more about patent law coming out of law school and having had a chance to study it than a lot of your colleagues at the firm.

How come no one is worried about their grades dropping second year and its effects on offer from SA?

Just offered SA position at local mid-size firm, thinking that might be enough to wake me up in class and get my butt in gear.


Or maybe I'll just keep trying to level up in Skyrim.
