...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.....
I'm kind of telling myself the same thing. I'd like to think that if any law student set his/her mind to it, getting in the top half of the class isn't too hard to do... yes, ok I realized the odds are 50/50 - but you're in complete control of how hard you work.
What do I know though? Just a 1L --- I didn't finish a couple exams... if I'm around the median, fine, I'll tell myself "I can be more disciplined and make adjustments." If I really F'd up, then, yeah I'll want to know about it before paying for another semester. Paying a ton of money to get mediocre grades is not a good thing, right?
