I've actually hear people on TLS stress and complain about smaller LRW classes which apparently have 8-10 people and grade on a steep curve. I've never been graded on a curve and not familiar with how the law school curve works, but I'm under the impression that more people = better chance of a good grade. If there are a limited amount of A's based on class size, I'd rather be in a bigger class. Statistically I know that the larger class size shouldn't improve your chances, but I would be more comfortable competing for 1/10 A's rather than 1/2.
There are about 30 people in each LRW class here. 100 in the substantive classes, and one of them is divided into two 50 person classes. I think also that in classes with fewer people the curve is more generous. <-- that could be wrong though. I haven't gotten any grades yet
