That I don't type fast enough. Actually I knew that but I didn't yet know it has consequences.

Now that grades are out, I know that I'll have to work much harder next semester. I still don't have my LR&LW grade though.

That grades take a ridiculously long time to come out. It's been over a month since my last final (two months since I turned in my LRW) and I still only have 3/6 grades.

Kind of ridiculous.

Blaming results on typing speed is a cop-out. Claiming you did well because you could type fast would also be a cop-out. The supposed linkage between exam length and exam grade is nearly non-existent.


I totally disagree with you on that.

What sucks is that we might very well get our fall semester LRW grade in March.

Didn't learn much. Just reaffirmed that I learn by doing.

Didn't make my own outlines, didn't really use supps that much, didn't really read casebook too much but I did take good notes, went to office hours to clear things up and did every practice test I could find and ended up doing fine overall.

Same strategy I took for LSAT, took 45 PT and self assessment.

I am waiting for the damn grades to come out. I do not think my opinion will be changed a whole lot by grades, though.

A bunch of us are at UVA, and all know each other or are acquainted to some degree. That makes things super awkward.

you guys have grades already?
Did they correspond with your anxiety level?

Are TLSers pessimistic enough?

I really don't understand why people are so secretive. The truth will come out eventually about one's performance.

Btw my Dad went to UVA Law in the early 70's and almost flunked out 1L. Don't follow in his footsteps... He quit law at 28 after working DOJ Civil Rights to become a professional opera singer.

where did you find practice tests besides the one(s) your prof gave you?

I don't see how "the truth will come out" other than when the Law Review roster is released in summer. And even then you won't know who graded on, who wrote on, etc.

I guess you could deduce something from a person's OGI slate, but even that is very imperfect, because you don't know if someone's interviews are pre-select or lottery.

Basically, there's no real way to know a person's grades at UVA unless they tell you.

What did we learn?

The best Christmas present is hearing that the biggest gunner in class got a B.

Yes. Yes. More of the starry-eyed 0Ls need to sit down, do some math, and realize we won't all be in the top 10 or 20 or 50%.
