Someone slap me. I was sure I was headed for the bottom half of the class, and I was ecstatic to find out I'm in the top 15 percent. However, I also found out all the total d-bags in the class are in the top TEN percent. So it's like.. I shouldn't be letting this bother me, but it inevitably is. And like I'm somehow feeling craptastic about it -- what the HECK? how can I get out of this mindset? Nuts!
welcome to law school you will always be competitive and happy/yet pissed.
Thank you for this quote. Tonight we had our first of two 1L oral advocacy competitions. I made finals, and won an award for distinguished advocacy, but failed to place in the top three. So, I'm happy with my success, but feel that I should have beaten the people who beat me. Not that I fault the judges.... just that I wish I had done better to come in higher.
lol j/k...i am queen of doing the same thing
