ok.  mental and emotional problems then?

um maybe just a hard test???  ::)

my boyfriend just listened to me complain. i never had any emotional or mental problems in school, sometimes i just needed someone to vent to...someone who wasn't a law student and never made a tort or adverse possession joke.

If it's any consolation to y'all, my friend is currently buried in a Barbri course, which she claims makes law school feel like a nice walk through the park, barefoot and eating an ice cream cone. First year times 10, says she.

Makes me not want to take the bar, cause I'm weak like that.

well, how did those grades end up?

B-.  I have no shame.  I was expecting a D.  I saw the grade distribution for the course, and I was shocked to find out that I did better than 45% of the people in the class.  I didn't answer two of the essays.  Literally nothing.

well, isnt that part of lawschool?

no matter what, you prob wont get an F, and because of the curve, youll prob fall near the middle?

She got a B-, not a D.

S'okay.  It's still surprising.  I saw the points breakdown so I know it was one of the highest B-minuses awarded, which is how I figured out the percentile.

And no, blueb, I don't think the curve means you automatically end up in the middle.  I was very lucky -- though it won't matter too much when this low-curve class is compared with my classmates in the midsummer rankings.  A B- still really bites.
