How big of a deal do you think grades really will be? I'm trying to choose right now, and the grades thing is a critical factor. I have been told that pretty much everyone gets Bs at HLS, but I don't know what to think anymore. Any feedback by 4 PST (my deadline!) would be appreciated.
A note for after you get your section assignments: I almost feel bad spoiling the fun, but if you're an extremely anxious type who is LUCKY ENOUGH to get Hanson as your torts prof/section leader, he (+ coauthor) has an article on SSRN about his approach to tort law. Link: http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1154164Like I said, this might spoil the fun (yours and his), and it is only a draft, so it's not the most polished piece in the world. Actually, upon further reflection, I wouldn't recommend reading this 'til after the class is over (but before the final) unless you're really dying and have no idea what is going on, big-picture-wise. The beginning is kind of dense and I was in the class, so. But yes. Advance notice and explication of an unorthodox prof's theory of teaching your very class: may indeed come in handy. Related: buy no commercial supplements for Hanson's Torts class. They will be laughably useless. I will be the one doing the laughing.
