Rule #s------Who Cares!? Right.

Postby henry flower » Tue Jul 24, 2012 1:28 am

So............. if you switch up rule #s (one digit off, and inconsistently, sometimes I got the #s right) on a heavy rule-based exam but context makes it fairly clear what yer talking about, you don't lose points, right? I mean, who would dock you for that? Shit.

If you're worried about an exam in July you've got bigger problems

Um.... summer class? Mainly taken to get $$$ to live on while I contribute my time freely to my internship. Been busting my ass.

I see that this did somehow end up in the wrong forum, though. Sorry about that

Do summer class grades affect your GPA/ranking for OCI? At my school they didn't, they were part of ranking only after fall semester, so I wouldn't be worried about a summer class grade

Not used for ranking, but might have it in time for OCI or at least to update interviewers. Plus, I'm hoping (probably semi-unrealistically, but a fella can dream, right?) for clerkships.

My Civ Pro professor gave extra points for citing the exact rule number (like 46(a)(4)(C) or god knows what)
