I fell into the trap of allowing the summer people at the firm to encourage me to take "useful" classes even if it hurt my GPA. There are some crazy soft, easy A's out there. One prof taught 2 classes last semseter and gave 100% A's! This semester he decided instead of having an exam, people got to go in and talk to him for a few minutes about a topic "at least somewhat" related to the course and he's giving them all A's as well.
Only classes with 40 or more need be curved- thus it is possible to have all uncurved classes your final 2 years and just face the curve in 1L. Sadly, I have only had 2 uncurved classes total. The seminar classes are capped at 25 and are basically a guaranteed A for no work- but you don't learn anything at all.
