You had an exam AND got a grade back already?

Also, which law firm is THE law firm?

You should probably not get a job at a law firm unless you are better able to control your panic mode.

One TLS poaster made cookies for NW admissions after she was admitted. Follow that instinct.

Study harder? Work on your writing and communications skills?

How did you already take an exam AND already get the grade back? Was it Scranton or some shit?

No one can help without way more information:
How low was the grade? B-/C+/D all have very different ramifications, especially depending on the school and the curve.
Is this the only exam you have back? If not, what are the other grades like?
Are you asking how to do better on future exams or whether to drop out?

I got a C+ coz I think I lost a whole lot of issues in the exam....I picked the issues up after the exam is finished. I was so nervous and could not sleep right now....waiting for the result of the second paper....

No offense, OP, but are you a non-native English speaker? If so, you may want to consider taking an advanced ESL class or just working on your grammar. That could have been a reason why you missed some issues or missed points on the analysis.

You picked up issues after the exam was over?
