Do you guys contribute it to just general apathy?
I ask, because I'm wondering if my not doing shit is going to finally catch up to me.
General apathy + realizing 1L is all that matters + nerds-with-nothing-better-to-do-who-continue-to-gun + general regression to the mean because people below median figure out how to take law school exams and people above median lose their former advantage + self-selection into classes (e.g., people who are bad at exam classes stop taking them).
As a 1L, having good analysis of the obvious issues and writing a lot of words equaled an A-. As a 2L/3L, it's very easy to get B+ pwned (especially in classes like Evidence, Corporations, Crim Investigaiton - classes where there is no "right answer") even when your analysis was solid and you wrote a ton.
