Who knows? Maybe you would, maybe you wouldn't. Being at the bottom of a boosted curve would be little consolation.
IMO hard-gunning 2Ls are likely to just be better than you at law school right now. You've taken Torts/Ks/CivPro/Crim. I promise you that by the time you are in your 2L spring you will look back on those classes and realize that they were much, much easier than you thought when you were taking them. Maybe you're the 1L who can hang, but I think it's a bad percentage play.
