not curious at all, i'm positive they are mediocre-bad. instead of checking them and becoming depressed im just going to pretend they never happened and try to motivate myself for next semester.

speaking of which, i think i still need to switch one of either admin/antitrust/crimpro/secured transactions with an easier class, wtf was i thinking.

Absolutely no to admin. Antitrust is really prof dependent. Crim Pro is the best class in law school.

The bar isn't hard and it's pass fail right? I don't see why you'd worry.

I'm guessing 3.5. Range of 3.0 to 3.9 but above 3.6667 is basically sub 5% chance. It would require my two uncurved classes to give true gentlemens A-, me doing better than I thought on Admin, and rocking a 3 week take home, that I feel so-so about.

I'm going to start using that phrase now.

Same here, only it seems like only one section is like that (a.k.a the only section I could book that fits my schedule.... fml). Not sure why all the gunners chose it and left the other sections to the normies, but if I had to guess, it's because Laurie Levenson teaches it.

Last year half the class got Cum Laude honors, which is a 3.65. And the 1L curve is about 3.4 at the highest. That is some seriously fucking grade inflation 2L-3L.

3.5 for 2L has got to be below median by a lot.

:shock: That curve is RIDIC. Of course, I thought UK's B-curve was atrocious...until I met some kids from TTTT that curve to 2.5. Holy mother.

In other news, still no grades, still for some reason slogging through my note, and by slogging through my note I mean watching Lord of the Rings and playing on the internet.

The curve offically doesn't change, but many courses don't have to follow it. So if you take a bunch of seminars you can get easy A's. But if you fill up on larger gunner classes. You get fucked hard.

I'm taking a Seminar and a Clinic. Both are easy graders but require decent work before finals. That's probably good. Then three finals, two easy classes, and one curved.

If my grades suck this semester, I'll have to gun Evidence.
