At my law school, the cut off is a 70 average which is considered a D. During the fall semester, I was having "too much fun" being away from home and in a different state. My days were filled with car rides to the beach and malls. I figured since I breezed through a T1 undergrade with three major and honors, law school would be easy. Well, while the material is easy (except for future interests in Property :-)), the testing is brutal (which im sure you can all relate to). The last three weeks, I pulled myself together and thought i understood what i needed for my exams. I took the exams and the grades are still pending. however, in the interim i received my LRW paper back (which is worth 20% of my final grade) and it was a 70!! I did wait until the last few days to do the paper and just wanted to get it over with. I feel like a failure and a loser. My other three grades were 90, 86, and 84. I was shocked to get a D. My dreams of being a sucessful criminal attorney have been replaced with thoughts of a menial job. I have obviously underestimated the rigor of LS. I feel like SH$T and have no motivation to return back to school. Additionally, i am TERRIFIED to get the rest of my grades. ANTWAN offered some very good advice in a previous post. Im looking for some advice or encouragement. THIS SUCKS!!!!
