I go to a third tier school on a full scholarship. I knew that any law school, regardless of tier or rank, would be difficult. However, I'm surprised at the caliber of students at my school. They are a very intelligent group...and I'm assuming a lot of them came to the third tier school due to scholarships, rather than limited acceptances. Anyways, I'm working my a$$ off but hard work (as with anything else in life) doesn't always translate into great results.
I desperately want to make it into the top 10% of my class for two reasons: A top position in my class would certainly help when it comes to career options, and also for the purposes of possibly transferring to a higher ranked school.
Dumb question: How hard is it to make it into the top 10%? Any tips or advice? Any 2Ls out there who have successfully done this?
BTW...my school grades on a C curve.
