Second semester performance

Postby perfunctory » Sat May 13, 2017 5:49 pm

I am feeling drained as a 1L in my second semester. I don't feel like I rocked some of my finals - but I don't know if this is because I now have a more accurate perception of my performance (after fall sem) or because I am legitimately performing subpar. Do people feel this? Am I really going to tank my grades?

grades??

Seriously. Just wait until you actually get your grades.

Most everyone feels that way.

Doesn't matter what you feel, just matters what you do with the results you don't have yet.

You got an A-, a B+, and two Bs.

I thought one of the Bs was a B-, but I may have misread it. I haven't replaced my tea leaves in a while.

Yeah, it was a B- on the curve, but prof gave a half-grade bump for participation.

I am right there with you. I had this seemingly limitless pool of energy fall semester, and was obsessed with the concept of even being in law school. Ended up extremely pleased with all my grades. This semester, burn out, dislike for my classes, and Property happened.

Yeap. I'm constantly going over what I wrote on my exams, sometimes thinking I utterly failed, sometimes thinking I got straight A-s. lol.

I know what you mean. I just can't gauge my performance this time around. I probably won't check my grades until July or something...
