I wish Epstein's exam was on his themes. I think I understand them better than the black letter law.

I know neither his themes nor the black letter law.  But the latter because he never mentioned what the law might actually be.

Juicy: UChicago

It sounds so reasonable when you say it.

Meh, its not like I"m learning black letter with Miles either.

At least the casebook is really readable. Much better than any of our casebooks, I'd say (I'm going to hurt our CivPro book, its awful, just awful).
"I'm a genius, but I'm a misunderstood genius."
"What's misunderstood about you?"
"Nobody thinks I'm a genius."

FYI: Grades are sort of up. Well, at least they're for Strahilevitz's Property. As of right now they can't be seen under the "Grades for Winter 2008" link on cmore... but if you go to "Academic History" link, you can see the grade.

So, yeah, congrats and/or condolences.

What range exactly qualifies as an "A"?  And what kind of average does, say, the top 10% of the class have after 1-2 years?

What range exactly qualifies as an "A"?

The specific breakdown:

155-159 = F
160-167 = D
168-173 = C
174-179 = B
180-186 = A

But the letters really don't mean anything.

If I'm not mistaken, this is what students and employers are told:

179+ = Top 19%
180.5+ = Top 3.8%
182+ = Top 0.4%

Do you know if this is true after 1L, or is this for graduation grades? (Intuition would lead me towards the latter.) If the latter, we don't know of any more accurate counts?

Also, posting grades one at a time is cruel. I'm curious whether Masur and Etienne failed me or not.

Question of the day: When do we get Crim (aka test of horrible doom) grades?  (And by test of horrible doom, everyone here knows exactly to which parts I refer)

It says its at graduation. And no, I don't know of any more accurate count for 1Ls, but one may exist.

If they're not up yet, I imagine they won't be going up today.

I believe that it has been said by MTG on xoxo previously that after 1L top 10% is 179.5, but I'm not 100% sure if this is correct.

I'm holding out hope for Crim until 6 or so. I think it's completely possible that they are entering them now. Or at least this is what I tell myself.
