i dont think anyone is dealt grades...good or bad. They are earned
I do not disagree with you at all on the fact that grades are earned, but I have been out of school for almost 6 years. When I was getting my degree I had given up on trying to get into law school and I earned bad grades. So even though I myself may have dealt the cards that hold my chances of getting into law school, unfortunately I chose my cards poorly and now I must play this hand. I don't know if you are right out of undergrad or if you are older, but for me growing older has changed my perspective, goals, and maturity level (although my spelling has not improved any) So the person who dealt this hand is not exactly the same person 6 years later who is trying to go back to law school. I am sure you had great grades and should be proud of that, I didn't mean to try and undermine the value of the hard work that you put in to getting those grades.
