The Curve

Posted by newlawmom on January 8, 2009

Two more grades came in – a B- in Civ Pro and an A- in Legal Writing and Research. The A- makes me happy, the B- less so. But the B- doesn’t count as a final grade so my final grades thus far are a B+ and an A- which doesn’t look so bad. But I am still disappointed. One more grade remains and I am praying for a B or higher. This is an interesting situation to be in at this point.  Other than being aware of a B- median, I have no idea where my class rank will be based on these grades. And yes, it matters. Unfortunately, it really does. I will feel much better when my last grade is in and I get a chance to figure out where I really stand.  Clearly, I need to do better this semester. If only I knew how to do that, I’d be in good shape.

Tomorrow brings Property and Constitutional Law. I think I’m going to like property. Constitutional Law less so. I still love Contracts even though my grade was less than stellar. I really think I can improve there, based simply on understanding the material better now that I have at least somewhat of a grasp on the subject. Civ Pro seems to be moving in a new direction this semester, and for that I am grateful. I found the first semester somewhat boring, and that could have impacted my grade. Legal Research and Writing is off to an interesting start. We got our first research assignment of the semester today and it seems exciting. For real. So that’s about it. For tonight, I am off to do some reading.  I hope my readers have a peaceful kind of day and can turn any lemons into lemonade. I have been dealt a couple this week.
