BROOKLYN LAW SCHOOL CURVE

Postby bewarned » Thu Jan 24, 2019 4:37 pm

Brooklyn Law changed the 1L grading curve and the administration says that it is so people at the bottom "take their grades seriously." But the new curve dragged down the median to below a 3.0. This place is a disaster. Has anyone else had any experiences like this at their schools?

I don't think anyone will argue that Brooklyn is a top-flight law school, but how does adjusting the median harm anyone? Your class rank matters more than your GPA; everyone understands that different schools set their curve differently.

It matters because some/many gigs have a hard-3.0 floor regardless of actual class rank.

Was the curve actually changed midway through 1L, taking effect immediately? If so, that's doubly shitty.
