It's called the IRAC method. I've spoken (online and in person) to probably over a hundred current students from HYS to T2, and basically all of them talk about their own professor's insistence on using this. The rest tend to fall into the Getting to Maybe camp. As far as structure and content goes, this is the first time I'm hearing about "insanely different" grading methods. Maybe they're just "insane" methods.
Of course you start with the IRAC method. But that's like asking someone how to ski and saying, "It's best to go downhill." Every single student in law school knows the IRAC method. There's a lot more nuance to it than that, and some law school classes do not really require much use of the IRAC method at all.
But really, lets not hijack this thread. It's just my opinion from having had gone to the school that the summer start was not worth it for most of the people, excluding non-trads. That's my opinion. You evidently disagree. So be it.
