One L’s go crazy during finals time.
You have no idea how well you’ll do, it’s your one shot at a grade, it could determine the trajectory OF YOUR ENTIRE LIFE, etc., etc.
Even given those stresses, we had trouble believing the tipper who told Above The Law this morning that a One L has been asking her classmates to provide her with a resume and undergraduate transcript in order to be “accepted” into her study group.
Elie Mystal’s take on this selective study group is here.
But a Columbia law student confirmed to us that it is, in fact, true, and that one professor gave a lecture about the merits of professionalism when she heard about it.
So many things to say…
We are sorry any person is so stressed out that this seemed like a good idea.
We wonder if the transcripts had to be official or whether a photocopy would do.
We wonder if she believes a resume and undergraduate transcript will be an accurate predictor.
Plus, considering that it is a top law school and all, we’re talking about a percentage swing in GPA’s somewhere in the low tenths of a point.
And we feel bad that she is now going to be a law school legend.
Good luck on exams, kids. Remember to continue to take deep breaths.
