So after that first year, does the curve get harder with all the dummies failed out or does it get easier with the smarties all transfering?

It would not be 1/3rd of the total credits. Closer to 1/5th.  The summer class schedule is more condensed and thus the 7 credit maximum limit. The fall/winter semesters you typically take 15 credits. Also, the more credits you earn the less impact a bad grade has. Thus bad grades arising out of the 3rd semester will be softened and therefore not much attrition shall arise. My T4 = UDM. 

The good thing about insane attrition is that it brings a sharp focus to the task at hand (lawyerly analysis on exams) . Even though academic attrition is mostly urban legend, it certainly exists here and keeps you scratching and clawing just to keep your head above water.

Whites are a minority in South Africa, that dosn't give them any special rights does it? Just the opposite due to their past position of control. I'd expect the same for the whites in America.

If you are going to become a lawyer, then you really need to become a bit more educated on the basics.

White and Black can be considered colors under certain circumstances, and can be considered, "non-colors" under other circumstances. There is really no direct clause that would state, "white is not and will never be a color," or, "black is not and will never be a color." I'd suggest looking into the additive color theory. Black, according to science tends to have the need to suck up all of light (or color) and reflect none back (retina or vision), which is an example of a non-color. White is a combination of a lot of colors and it reflects light back which is an example of a color (also vision or caused by the retina of the human eye). Black is created by a mixture of a lot of colors, but it would not be pure black just a different variation of black, a lighter tone. That is just the breadth of it.

Are white people a people of color? Yes, they are a people of color. I think it boarders the lines of racism or downright prejudicial when people form such groups. However, soon whites will be the minority so those types of organizations will become nonexistent all together due to the racial coating they tend to have.

So you are saying that 1/3 of your total credits couldn't impact your grade?

Assuming arguendo that your saying a full year constitutes 3 semesters( Fall, Winter, and then Summer semesters). During the summer, my T4 only allows up to 7 credits to be taken.

what do you mean 6 credits?

I'm thinking 2 semesters.  A lot of that 'attrition' arises from students transferring during the summer after 2nd semester grades. Mathematically, it would be hard to survive 30 credits and somehow drop below the required GPA from 6 credits in the 3rd semester. What is the point you are trying to make?

Do you think that the insane 1L attrition rates at T4's are based on a full year(3 semesters) or standard academic year (2 semeseters) ?

Asian lawyers are HOT!

Plus you are an ethnic female, that will help you on your aps. Schools want that, not just the pastyskinned-sausagefest they normally have.
