It's just not true. You need to understand the particular professor and/or be better enough at reading and writing to outpace all the other classmates that are also good at reading and writing. Writing clearly and understanding what you read gets you a C most of the time.
I'm glad you mentioned understanding the professor, you aren't talking about his political views, but more of just recognizing what kind of answers he likes when he calls on people? I guess i'm a little confused.
Yes. Many processors in law school admitted to me and others that the difference between an average grade and good grade, or a good grade and great grade, were often just the result of the professor's random feelings at the time or based on structural preferences for their exams. Almost everyone in law school gets the substance.
This is completely credited. The only class I booked last year was one where I did zero reading, skipped half the classes, and only studied (from an old outline) for about three days before the final.
My worst grade, on the other hand, was in the class I studied for the most intently and felt like I had the most thorough grasp of the material.
Shit be random as fuck, and anyone who pretends otherwise is usually just trying to make themselves feel good about their luck.
