We have a B curve for 1L's and I don't think anyone gets lower than a C ... I mean, unless you SUCKED SO BAD (like didn't even know the subject at all). I mean, bottom of the class is bottom of the class ... they just give the "gentleman's C" so it isn't a double kick to the groin. lol
I actually knew the law, I just failed to articulate it as well as I could have. Missed part of an essay question, etc.
um..wait for the rest of your grades and compare them to your class ranking before you freak out...and then even if you did poorly..still dont freak out.
i think one of the worst things about law school-which is the tradition in law school and not going to change-but still bad, is the feedback system which puts your grades in each class on 1 exam and releases the grades to that exam about a month to two months after you take it..and does so gradually so that your worst or best grade may apper first or last. then these scores of your 1l essentially dictate your first job..and thus a large portion of your carrer path..reagrdless of ho had the flu when they were taking their exam..reagrdless of who becomes a genious of law in their 3rd year afte rthey have had any feedback at all.
