Gonna drop out soon. Just riding out 1L. Never quite understood curves or any of that. Too much calculus involved.

Is a B- HIGHER or LOWER than a B+?

What if I get above the curve on the next test? Does a B- and an A- equal a B+?

little lower than a b+ actually. (2.7 + 3.7)/2 = 3.2

this assumes 3.3 is a b+

This was probably a midterm worth very little. I agree with everyone. Drop out now. Don't even wait.

Dude, I'm pretty worried! I had an LSAT score above my school's 75th percentile and I went to a T25 undergrad. I'm really screwing up here lol. Only good thing is I have a full ride, but if I'm below median after the first semester, I'm definitely dropping out. Not even enjoying law school other than the friends I've made who are pretty cool! :)

Is this a midterm? If so, how much was it worth?

Does anyone know how well midterms correlate to final grades? My school doesn't have midterms, so I honestly have no clue.

20%. I don't want to have to think about the math because I'm too young for that, but do I really need to kill the final now?

Since he's freaking out this much, it was probably worth 90% of the class.

Lol I was close.

If you had said 5%, I would have said stick it out. But 20%? Drop now.

Haha I wish I could drop the class. If I drop out, I don't know what I'd do. I'm gonna start looking ferociously for jobs. This just can't be the way haha.

You mean to get a job? I dunno... I was hoping for solid grades. I wasn't gunning, just hoping to be in the top 1/3 range. How is this happening? :roll:
