And I am well spoken, and generally no one in my school would suspect that this is my position in the class. I got a C- in a 5 credit property class 1L year (the prof said "I probably would have given you a B if I had graded this early, but it must have been one of the last exams I looked at."). My confidence was shaken by being in the middle of the class (literally a B average) after the first semester, so my grades kept falling.

I don't entirely believe you.I am going to have so much fun creaming you arroggant phonies. Just like I did in undergrad...you are next. See you in class or Moot Court.

Sadly, that needs confirmation. The one thing that shocked me in law school was the bull they are feeding you. And I'm not talking about inflated employment statistics, just... the whole package.Get LEEWS (www.leews.com). It will help you miles when it comes to exam taking. Your professor will tell you not to obsess about black letter law. This is bull. And this is also where supplements really come in helpful. For every single page you read, think about how this is relevant to your exam not how it will help you get questions right in class. Even if your professor is Kingsfield redux, the exam is what is important. And while I only have experience from 1 law school I have to say, the Socratic method doesn't seem to be what it used to be. I haven't had any professors that go out of their way to be a male private part to anyone. One thing you should take for granted though; if you have to pass when a professor calls on you, you better be damn well prepared next class. But I'm gonna assume that to be common sense.Oh, yeah, most important thing about law school. It's perfectly fine to get drunk on Thursdays.
No. Listen, guys: you either have it or you don't. I'm sorry to break it to you, but law school exam-taking is about formulating quick arguments and seeing things quickly and more clearly than your peers. No amount of study will change your grades, beyond the minimum required to vaguely understand the BLL.And this is coming from someone who partially bought all this bull about GTM last year.
