Incoming 1Ls / Why are law school grades determined in part by luck?
« on: January 17, 2010, 05:54:14 PM »
 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?

 Hey guys. I am starting this thread in the hopes that those of us in this community who are trying to attend law school in Texas might discuss the ins and outs with one another. To start, I have a 3.49 GPA and a 162 LSAT (June '09). I'm applying to all the schools in Texas except Texas Southern and Texas Wesleyan, and my first choice is the law center in Houston. I feel like I've got a decent chance of getting in there, but we'll just have to wait to see. Any Texans or Texas school hopefuls out there?

 Does anybody have one? I've done plenty of research concerning the schools' numbers and programs, and I was curious to see if the members of this site who have gone to a school in Texas might have something interesting to say. There are 9 law schools in Texas, so someone who posts here is bound to be a student in Texas...
