To clarify, I am asking if the same grade distribution applies to both full and part time, or if they have their own grade distributions, and if the curve of the school is any different depending on which program you're in.

They should be pretty similar. There are actually two curves, one is for first-year classes and the other for 2L and 3L classes, determined by what the course is, not when you actually take it (P/T students may take "first-year" classes in their second year of law school as it is a 4, not 3 year program). The curve for first-year classes is a bit tougher than that for 2L and 3L classes which is partly why many students do the worst, grade-wise, in their first year. You're graded against the other students in a specific class, so P/T students would be graded exclusively against other P/T students and same for F/T. Overall then, in the first year P/T and F/T students should have a similar curve, in the second year F/T students will have a slightly easier curve than second year P/T students who are still taking some of the tougher 1L classes, and it should even out again for 3Ls and 3rd and 4th year P/T students. What's most important though, is the 1L curve, because it's the least forgiving, and therefore the biggest obstacle to maintaining a scholarship. The challenge should be equally difficult for P/T and F/T students.
