General Board / Re: Post Your Grades as you get them!

Yay! My C- was actually a C+! There was an addition error. So now my official grades are:
Contracts: A-
Civ Pro: C+
Torts: B-
Criminal Law: A-

Not the greatest, but I'm happier now than I was when I had that C-.

hmmm.... *&^%... well, i know, at least in undergrad, there is always a probation period before they revoke scholarships and the second semester grades are typically way different then first, so hopefully both of those factors will work to your advantage :(

Yeah, it isn't as dramatic a situation as I'm making it seem. If, after the first year I fall below a 3.0, the scholarship is reduced by half. If it comes back up above a 3.0 after the second year, then the full scholarship is restored. So I'm still okay. That grade was really just a shock to the system. Especially after the high of getting an A- as my first law school grade. Oh well. I can only work harder and smarter next semester.

Well, my first grade came back on Saturday: A- in Contracts. I was so happy. Then I got my next grade today.... C- in Civ Pro. Easily my hardest class, but still! I feel like I am going to throw up. I need a 3.0 to keep my scholarship. I hate life and I hate law school.

should have turned down the scholarship and gone to a better school...  :(

Actually, the biggest scholarship offer was from one of the best schools I applied to, so I thought it was the best of both worlds.

Ugh, I hate waiting. Tomorrow is the deadline for 1L professors to turn in their grades. That means I probably won't get my grades until sometime next week. *Whiiiiine*

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Seating Chart Penmanship

Something else to consider: If you have a last name that is first or last in the class alphabetically, you can probably expect to get called on the first day of class. It is easy for the professors to remember that they called on the last/first person on the list than to remember the name of someone in the middle.

General Board / Re: Learing disabilities in law school
« on: December 13, 2007, 02:11:02 AM »
Some people are upset with the way my school treats this matter: A person can register with the disability office and the disability office arranges for one of their classmates to send them notes from class every week. The person with the disability can also get extra time on the exam. Most of our exams are three hours, so the people with extra time get five.
Also, I'm not sure if this is true of most schools, but someone who has ADD and is taking their medication is eligible for these benefits. That's the part that makes people upset. It seems like they have an unfair advantage as opposed to a level playing field.

1L job search / Re: Is Dec. 1st critical?

Yay! I got an e-mail from a firm in St. Louis wanting to set up a phone interview!

Yeah, I figured the reception wasn't really that big a deal. I was just pleased that it wasn't a rejection. I'm fully expecting that this was the first of many, many depressing rejection letters. I'm hoping for a few interviews, though. If nothing else, I'll develop a pretty thick skin, right?

Sent out 70 resumes/cover letters on Dec. 1st. So far one flat out rejection (They didn't even wait for grades. Ouch.) and one invitation to a 1L holiday reception, which I take as not a bad sign, at least.
