I'm predicting my lowest semester in law school by like .4. People won't look at my grades when I'm applying for jobs in a year, right? hahaha

Can't wait to see these grades. Had a few "Did we really learn this?" multiple choice situations on multiple exams :)

Thank you for reminding me that I need to set up a spam filter for the email about spring grades being posted!

So right now, I have a week left. In that week, I'm supposed to write two 20-25 page research papers and one 8-page paper, take two exams, and finish a big project and write it all up for my professor. I'm pretty sure it would actually be impossible to get in everything on time at this point.

Has anyone heard of a professor actually failing a 3L (or any student I guess)? Is that a thing? I literally have no idea what's going on in 2 of my 3 remaining classes.

At my school the professors have to like petition the school and get approval to give anything below a C.

I heard last year a prof wanted to fail a 3L and had a battle of wills with Cliff about being allowed to do it. Dunno who won though.
