Drink to block it out- I had nightmares the night after every final last year, and all it does is give you ulcers and bad sleep. Try to go for a run or hang out with non-law school friends. And know that the fear will go away after a couple weeks.
*GENERALLY*, say you got a D or a C in a class...would a law school let you take it again and then take the 2nd grade?
I would guess that re-takes in law school are a no-no ... I know our whole university generally allows for "grade replacement" (i.e. taking a class again), but I'm not sure if that bleeds into the law school.Will they really give a D? I mean, don't law professors give the "gentleman's C" since it's the bottom of the curve anyway? (At least here we have a B curve)
...I would seriously consider withdrawing if say, I was in the 50% rank. How do we know grades before the Spring semester? It's like they try to take your money for the second semester when we don't even know how we performed this semester.....
