I feel like crap, particularly at the prospects that this B is really a C or a C- perhaps.
I took a quick look at the grading scheme. Does 5-15% of the class have to fall within the D+/D/F category? If so, wow.
The curve is a guideline, not a requirement. Sometimes the admin will put a firm rule, like no more than 3% get A+. But beyond that, they can't really enforce the %s as rules.
No matter what the curve says, very few students get Ds or Fs, assuming they show up and try to write something competent. Where I went to school, there was a 5-10% guideline, and yet it was unheard of to get below a C. One professor sometimes gave a few Ds or Fs and he was a mean SOB, definitely an exception. Nobody else gave below a C.
A B in law school is very much like a C+ in college. Maybe a C+/B-. It's important to be realistic about your grades and what they mean, before it's too late. One grade is never a disaster. The A- in civ pro is encouraging. By the way, most students think that civ pro is their worst subject first semester subject, when that can only be true for about 1/3 of them.
A B in law school is very much like a C+ in college. Maybe a C+/B-.
Summer Job Prospects:Alright, taking into consideration our "mandatory" curve, what summer job prospects are not out of reach with my A-, B?Can I still be a janitor?
