but what does it say about you if you can't manage to stay in the top 93-94 percent on your class on a regular basis
I hope this is sarcasm, anyone who is confident
that they will be in the top 6-7% of their class at a top 10 law school probably isn't going to be. Do you realize what that means having to overcome? The quality of the student body at these schools (at least as far as my expectations, which I have reason to believe are accurate) is going to be a whole different league from anything you've ever seen before.
I am confident that if I work hard and stay on my game I'll be in the top 30% of my class, but I think anything above this has a lot to do with subjective factors (i.e. how in line your particular writing style/area of interest coincides with that of your professors).
ETA: Ok, I read your response wrong, I see that now, but this is still solid for anyone out there who might have thought they were the shxt.
