Hi All,need some personal advice on grades. I am rising 2L at a top 10 school gearing up for OCI. My grades are all around the school median (2.9-3.2) except my grade in property. I almost failed the course(below a 2.0). I was not sick during the exam, but the professor was very old school and apparently gave many low grades. After many attempts, the professor is unwilling to change the grade and I have no idea how to explain this situation to employers. I am interested in working for a firm, does this completely ruin my chances? I would really appreciate honest advice.
Oh no! Please don't think this board is dying! I have gotten sooo much advice from it and I'm very grateful for those who have contributed thus far! Yes, that makes me the dreaded lurker who doesn't post! Lol Guilty as charged. You have guilted me into speaking up and posting. You ole heads are good at it man!! Anywho, Hi all!!
I can post about the goings on criminal courts in a large southeastern city. I got stories for days.
That's cool how you referenced a case.
I'm so far from the end of my tether right now that I reckon I could knit myself some socks with the slack.
And I can post funny moments during oral arguments in a U.S. Court of Appeals. My favorite:Defense attorney to the panel after a judge notes the appellee's (yes, that's right...this was a rare downward departure case) criminal history: "Judge, armed robbery is as common as cheese!"
Also, I'd have to disagree. It's perhaps as common as humus.
