I have heard many times during the application process that law school grades are in part the luck of the draw. Can this really be so? Is there a positive consensus about the truth of this assertion, and, if so, why is it true? I know nothing specific about law school grades or grading methods other than the general one exam-one grade concept and the existence of a sometimes harsh curve. It seems to me that such a method of handing out grades would favor those who write especially well and/or understand the pedagody and preference of the professor. Anybody care to set me straight on this matter?
