I had an interviewer I didn't like at all. Should I send him an F. You note?

Oh, I'm not doing that much work. I probably shouldn't be so surprised that I didn't get an A because of that very fact! I brief each case and do an end of class outline, and take notes... and do the reading. Other than that, I pretty much only studied for about 6 hours the day of the exam and attended a few study groups. Still, I felt like I knew the material cold (let's face it, it's not that complicated, just a lot to remember) so I expected an A- at least, and ended up with a B+.
Then again, woe is me, right? A B+ isn't so bad.Have you read Getting to Maybe? If you're putting all this work, you might not be studying smart. Don't underestimate the utility of a tactical change.
It won't be the last time you don't get an A. I made about 5 A's in my entire law school career after making probably less than 5 B's during my previous academic experience. It's hard to accept that you aren't the smartest person in the class any more, but the sooner that you do accept that fact the easier it will be for you to come to terms with not making the absolute top grades.
