1. you are insensitive 2. People make it depending on the Prof's, they have different tendencies and like different things, so sometimes its a fluke.

Next time you want to ask such a question suck it up, realize what you are doing, self-assess, say hey I am a douche, and move on.

I really don't know how its possible to make lower than median on law school exams. I've never made lower than a B+ on an exam in my law school career. And I've only made 2 B+'s, both of which were on exams where after reading the question I was so confused I didn't know where to start. I literally spent most of the test just reading the question hoping to see if there was something I was missing. I barely wrote anything in my response. I know alot of people when they panic just start writing everything they know down. I really was so confused during these two tests that I didn't even know where to begin.

I left both exams totally devastated expecting to make B-'s at best and most likely getting a C on the exam. Yet somehow I made a B+ on both exams placing me in the top 50-55% of the class. So I got to thinking, if my answer as bad as it was didn't make the bottom 40%, what the hell did those folks write to get them such low grades?

Can someone clue me in on how people make such low grades on exams?

This always happens around summer or winter break when people start getting grades back: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=145086&p=3886037

Curves are forced, and people do not study.

And why don't any of you have any money? I mean, my dad is just rolling in it and I don't get how people make less than six figures.

Hey lisjjen, you think Z3RO and OP are the same dude?

I got a perfect score, so I have little sympathy for people who say that they expect to get 160 and need help. If you're testing there, you don't really know what you're doing. Not like it's you're job.

Remember; this is how law school (and concordantly law jobs) are handed out. If you can't perform on a given day but are reliable, do phone tech support like me.


Very supportive. Very helpful. Also, you're a dick. This isn't the "Santa Claus isn't real" kind of dick. This is a "your mom has cancer, I'm going to tell a cancer joke... and then urinate on your head because mine doesn't" kind of dick.

You literally didn't say one constructive thing. You just told him he sucks because he doesn't fit into the 99.9% like you do. If that is the cost of genius, then live on your island by yourself. Fortunately, I know a slew of extraordinarily intelligent people who are enjoyable to be around, it seems you aren't one.
