Got the call this afternoon, too!!! You have nothing to worry about. I asked her about what "consistent performance" meant and she said all it means is you have to pass your classes, cause they need each student to be at the 2L level-- nothing else. After my property exam today, whew! Maybe I still do have some worrying to do
I hope this is the case. When I asked her about it, she didn't say it didn't matter but instead said she didn't expect it to be an issue (which wasn't particularly reassuring to me).
For those that got accepted, are you still trying to write on to law review at your current school or are you putting all your eggs in the Chicago basket? I'm afraid to skip the write-on competition here, then have my offer rescinded by Chicago. This would leave me with mediocre grades and no chance for law review.
Yeah, she did say "wont be an issue," but then she kept explaining more where she said it's basically pass your classes. I wouldn't worry too much about word limits (doesn't your prof stop after the maximum, but not throw it out altogether?) My exams this semester were killer (and I still have one to go), but if anything goes wrong with my grades I will beg the profs to reconsider based on the fact that everything is riding on this. The only problem is that I learn my grades so late (
) But I honestly think the whole rescind thing would mean something really disastrous (at least thats what I'll keep telling myself until my exams are done and the grades are posted).
