That actually sounds really nice. Easing you into the law school exam process instead of having 50% of your grades determined the first time you experience it.
I always hear people say this as a plus, but 50% chance it harms you more than it hurts you. If you have more time to adjust, so do your classmates, and on a mandatory curve that's all that matters.
I mean, sure, psychic benefits and all that. Definitely nice as a matter of mental burden to only have two classes to worry about each of the first two quarters. But IMO the stress comes more from the fact that you're competing with a lot of very smart people than the size of the workload itself.
I'm pretty sure psychic benefits are all that people mean when they say it's nice. I personally felt much less stressed knowing that only two grades out of like fifteen were coming on my first go-around.
Yeah, I'm just talking about relieving some of the stress of "What if I'm doing it ALL WRONG??" during the first part of the year.
