He contemplates assault for a much longer time than one should.

You know your life sucks when the number of guys in your law school class interested in knowing which girls you like is greater than the number of girls that actually like you.

Yepp. For the amount these people are paid, it's mind numbing. I can't say whether it's the professors or the one completely awful woman who is supposed to be processing them, but either way, I completely don't give a shit about my current classes.

I mean, should be sending out resumes/cover letters without grades? I have no idea what the fuck I'm doing.

Every comment you make is veiled in so many layers of sarcasm that I hardly feel like taking the energy away from my con law reading to unpack them lol

I thought one of you bros went to NU and one went to CLS. So I was confused as to whether you were talking about a real person you both knew. I don't even see how what I said can be construed as sarcastic.

...I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt this time. We both go to CLS, but he's absolutely flaming when he says he knows who I'm referring to.

Either you tell us or I plan an elaborate Valentine's Day prank.

And *hug* about the last grade. :/ I know it's not the best consolation, but all you can do is focus on this semester, work on your test-taking strategies, and rock it. And I'm certain you've got that in you :)

Bitch you shall receive I guess. Grades came in this morning. 2 Bs, B+, and A, but the A was in a 3 credit course (others were 4). Of course, the class I got the A in I didn't outline for, I didn't do any practice tests, and I mostly just played Dawnguard while reading an old outline. I keep my scholly but I'm still in the middle of the pack. Fuck. I wanna quit this shit so badly.

It's above median for sure, but I'm at a tier 2. I hope my post didn't come off as dickish, I'll redact the grades if that's the case. I also screwed up, I meant two B's, one B+.

I guess your decision comes down to whether or not you were banking on/hoping for a job that you could only get if you had significantly above median grades.

I would think one would only attend a T2 (or really, any non-T14) with the aspiration of working at a small firm, PI, etc.- basically jobs that aren't all that grade sensative and depend on your hustle. I would think your grades would solidly keep you on that path, in which case why would you drop out? But of course YMMV.
