General Board / Re: What does my B mean DAMNIT!?
« on: January 26, 2009, 10:59:29 PM »
Well, not sure how realistic this is, but I really want to do something pertaining to federal law enforcement work (like the FBI, USSS, DEA, and what have you). Maybe even a local DA office?

I really do NOT want to be writing briefs, if I can circumvent that little gift of legal practice, I'll consider those options first.

Your thoughts?

Summer Job Prospects:

Alright, taking into consideration our "mandatory" curve, what summer job prospects are not out of reach with my A-, B?

Can I still be a janitor?

In the sense that when I got a C+ in college, I knew that it was a C+ and I knew that I was NOT supposed to be happy about that grade.

In law school, I'm not sure how to feel about a B... should I feel the same as if it were that C+ in college?

I hope I'm making sense, if not... it is my loss I guess.

Thanks. I guess my 152 doesn't necessarily mean I'm going to be a janitor or something of that ilk.

Hey Miss P, I got an A- in civil procedure. I thought that was my worst subject, but it worked out for the best.

So where does this put me; within like top 50%?

Yeah, that is what I surmised -- seems like there is a lot of room for these professors to grade as they please.

Hey everyone - I hope everyone is doing well.

Just got my first grade for the very first 'wonderful' semester here at law school.

I earned a grade of B in Contracts. What does this really mean? I know that every school has their own way of doing things; one grade can mean something totally different at another school. So, what does it all mean? Does this B mean that I am part of the riff-raff at my institution?

Link to our curve scheme:

I feel like crap, particularly at the prospects that this B is really a C or a C- perhaps.

Thanks!

I tend not to trust any reviews or opinions on products coming from individuals who have not purchased the product in question. I think that this 'clue' would be a greater benefit to all the onlookers.

cliff007, which DVD version of the LSAT Proctor did you purchase -- the older version with the gentleman proctor, or with the female proctor? I have not purchased the female proctor version so I cannot possibly opine on that one.

Also, I think that it is rather disingenuous to compare the DVD to a sundial. I would understand your argument if the DVD simply displayed a countdown clock of some sort but it is far more than that.
