I read those threads.


In each one, ONE person said that professors read your admissions file and use it in grading your exam.  No one commented on the statement here on the student board, and no one agreed with the comment on the pre-law board.

Last I checked, just because one person says something on an internet discussion board doesn't make it true.  It's a well known fact that at the vast majority of schools grading is done blindly.  Especially with using laptops in finals now, the possiblity of recognizing handwriting is practically non-existant.  Also, in a first year class, the exam is it.  No papers, or any other academic work, that's graded.  There's nothing for the professor to compare your exam with to determine who wrote it.

And that's fine if you choose to be a paranoid conspiracy theorist and believe this crap.  Granted, I don't think you should believe everything you read or are told.  But the theory of blind grading and admissions stats is just a little too far fetched for me (and apparently most others).

I agree. It is about the stupidist thing I have heard on here, and that's saying something.

Student: This may be a stupid question, but . . .

Professor interrupting Student: Mr. Jones, there are no stupid questions only stupid people who ask questions.

"This may be a stupid question..." professor interupts, "I'm counting on it Mr. X"

I think you may have to wait till a certain number of posts.  I just started seeing it.  I never came to this side of the fence cuz it is usually pretty dead, but it has picked up.

I make little notes on the side, especially in property because the professor loves to use them.  We spent all day on one of the notes about drilling for oil and whatnot, and I was completely unprepared, hadn't even read the note I don't think.  From that point on I read the notes, even looked up some of the cases on westlaw and read them.

I call BS about the interview thing.  I didn't think you could interview before November per the ABA.  This seems kind of like a troll to me.
