The point is that the correlation between intelligence/hard work and grade success is pretty tenuous. A ton of factors are at play.
I'm really special, and all of my childhood friends would tell you I'll make the Supreme Court one day. I went to all the preppiest prep schools, and my parents poured six-figures into private tutoring since kindergarten. I have double rimmed glasses, always tuck my shirt in, own 6 pairs of New Balance sneakers, never even saw a footlocker and was president of the college debate team. Nevertheless, I only got median. It is 100% impossible for law school grades to be random.
