People like to chalk the 1L grades up to luck simply because the people you expect to do well don't, and the people who you don't expect to do well are at the top of the class. Its not about luck - it is about how well you take an exam, and how hard you work to actually learn the material. Just because someone studies 24 hours a day during exam period doesn't mean they deserve to do well, or should feel "unlucky" when they screw up, hard work throughout the semester has a lot to do with it. Also, some people just get it alot better than others, I'm not one of them, so I work my a$$ off to do mediocre.
