A B+ isn't that bad dude.

Depends on the school. A B+ at a non-T14 is a dangerous grade.

Midterms don't mean squat anyways. That's why most classes don't bother with them after first term.


Ya, this. Midterms have a negligible impact on your final grade for a class in my limited experience.

Just got my last grade today.

Conlaw: A
Property: A+
Crim: B+
LRW: B+

Everything but LRW corresponded perfectly with the amount of effort I put into them.

... is it seriously only June 4th? I can't wait two more weeks...

CSO started putting OCI employers on Symplicity today, and a bunch of them have grade cutoffs listed. How am I supposed to obsess over bidding choices when I don't know yet if I qualifyyyy

Fuck. This semester sucks. I booked a class but other than that all of my grades are lower than last semester and I worked so much harder. It's really discouraging. Now I'm not sure what I'm going to do come oci, ugh.

x100. I want to know my grades so I'll know which firms will laugh me out of the screening interview.

I studied for a day and a half for contracts and then just watched netflix. I lived and breathed crim law for three days. I don't get it.

grade deadline passed - all grades in but crim.

so far, spring is looking better than fall. kind of wish my school ranked, or at least published percentile cutoffs or something, so i could figure out where i'm at. all they give us is gpa for top 20% :|

I did a lot less work this semester and started dating someone early on, which ate up a lot of time. Literally skipped 1/2 of Torts classes and never read cases. This isn't a #humblebrag - just a comment on either how interesting the competition is at a T4 or how random grading can be in lawl school. That said, I did the 1 month grind and had a corrupted version of LEEWS that I used to practice exams with. I just did a lot less this semester because, like Arrow said, once you get it I guess you get it.

The whole game (I think) is whether enough other people "get it" too.

Congrats dude, that's awesome! My last grade is in and it's my worst in LS :( it sucks- that class was so easy material wise, but he just hated everything I wrote. My a+ really saved me, it kept me barely in the top 10% I guess, but my grades look inconsistent as shit. I have no idea how they will look to an employer- especially since my gpa dropped. Ugh.

honestly, i hated crim and didn't feel like i understood anything all semester. i was so terrified of bombing that exam that i went crazy preparing (and got mad help from pinkcamellia). definitely worked out for the best.

not sure where i am percentage-wise, top 5% hopefully. i'm just shy of a 3.9.

still waiting for my last grade...i'm barely in the top 15% at this point. after my final grade, i'll probably drop out of it. 90% sure i'll probably just transfer now.
