Well, I got a P for LRW despite getting an H on my open memo (P on the closed). WTF?

DS congrats


Yes, congrats. It should soon display "Dean's Scholar Prize" under the grade; for some reason it doesn't show up right away except for the unexplained star.

Are there a max of 3 DSs per class x 4 classes = 12 DSs total per section for the first 1L semester?

Well that's exciting. I was worried it meant there might be something amiss...

It's not that exact of a science and it's probably not worth analyzing that closely.

Most of what we know about grades is contained in the first post in this topic.

Also not an exact science and not worth analyzing that closely. Professors can do whatever they want. I've never heard of a Cl-P+Op-H=P but I'm sure it's happened. It's also not going to change. HTH.

Did any of you come from the South? If so, how did you adjust to the weather?

I'm exactly the opposite of what you're looking for, but as a Minnesotan I can give you the cliffnotes version of what you should know about winter, besides owning winter clothes.

  • Keep track of the weather forecast, not for rain but for temperature. I refuse to go for a run when it's under 35F and I usually don't walk to the grocery store when it gets below 20F. I keep close track of any time it will be above or below those temperatures and plan my week accordingly.
  • We avoid the cold by not going outside. That sounds like it shouldn't be a novel idea, but you'd be surprised how many people don't understand how little you really need to be outdoors in 2015. Stay inside where it's warm.
  • When you see northerners showing up to class in a thin unzipped jacket with no hat, it's not because we're used to the cold. It's because we knew we'd only be outside for a few minutes and we just endured the suck. Lugging all your winter gear everywhere isn't always necessary. A five minute blast of cold will just wake you up.

From the South. Did not own a car up there (thankfully), so no need to worry about driving in the snow or shoveling, etc. Multi-layers man! Long-johns under my pants were a God send, at least for me, along with a very good Northface jacket, gloves and a beanie. Only thing left unprotected is the face and sometimes, that is bad enough...were times when I wanted to wear a ski mask straight up.

Long-Johns are amazing. Somehow I had never used them in the Northern Midwest, despite having crapass winters. They are now a staple of my wardrobe.

Boots, gloves, and a winter hat make it feel a lot warmer. I feel like most southerners don't own these items.

Telling yourself that at least you didn't go to Chicago also helps.

Wool socks - cotton makes your feet colder. Smart wool if you usually have bad circulation.

Interesting.

I was expecting the Fred angle to be "is 5 H's competitive for law review grade-on?"

It is definitely disastrous. For me, the consequence of getting those same grades for both 1L semesters was that I had to settle for a V10 in NYC.

You're at HLS. Take it easy.

Nothing is closed off to you. I know of someone who straight-P'd himself first semester, then straight H'd second semester, wrote on to LR, and is now clerking for a feeder. You can still do all the stuff every law student here aspires to do.

Can someone tell me what makes a V10 firm better than, say, a V15 or V20 firm? Slightly higher bonuses/exit options? Don't you have to work more hours though? Don't really understand the craze here to work for a top firm TBH
