wait is this true? do uchi students who do poorly suddenly find their degrees less portable?
Before ITE not really, but if you can't make it past 70 percent you might have some issues.
He's not saying you can't get hired; he's saying you possibly can't get hired in the area you'd like. I'm pretty sure that the good portion of that 70 percent couldn't have jetted off to DC.
Also, that still leaves a decent third out of the picture. Sounds good and ITE it is; however, we're still talking about a class of 190 people none of whom is unintelligent or lazy. I dunno who the bottom third percent at my school is, but I'd be willing to bet they're damn intelligent regardless of the class rank.
Someone has to hit the bottom third in a curve-utilizing world. It's not necessarily indicative of 'issues' - just the reality/function of how LS grades work out.
