2.7 on a 3.0 curve. My grades were remarkably similar, 2.6, 2.7, 2.8. Needless to say I'm shocked at the consistency and not all that happy. But I guess it's not anything that isn't recoverable.
Here's what I did when I was in a similar situation last year:
Keep studying hard, first of all. Secondly, by week 8 or 9 put yourself on a schedule that makes you do abou 8-10 practice tests for each course by the time you sit for the real deal. Either get as many as you can with answers or study with some top students.
As for writing the practice exams, realize that until you get near hte end of the semester and a) have done a bunch of practice exams and, b) have gotten all of the material under your belt, you might struggle...I did...but do about 75% of the tests timed. Answer the call of the question oh and by the way, if the Q says write a letter, then address it to the client on the exam...it puts the professor in the proper mindset when scoring your test.
Keep briefing and outlning and reviewing every weekend. The smartest don't finish at the top in law school...the hardest workers do, I promise you. When it was all said and done, I had gone from a poor first practice exam to top 5%.
