Over breakfast today I told two classmates I expected the torts exam to be the most difficult, crim law in the middle, and civ pro the best chance of a decent grade. They said “uh, everyone thinks they’ll do well on the civ pro exam.”
That is true. Everyone enjoyed the civ pro professor so naturally we all think we’ll do great on that exam. But thanks to the curve, 20% of us, even if we are all civ pro geniuses, will nevertheless get C’s. And on the torts exam, though we may all dread it, 20% of us will nevertheless get A’s.
So in fact, the exam people feel generally most confident about will be the one that’s most likely to produce a grade below expectations. And vice versa. Man, I hadn’t thought I’d get a better grade in torts than civ pro but I’ve just convinced myself it could well happen.

The eagle has landed
Seduced by the dark side
You've been in law school too long when...
I have only five more class days
The lone gunman
The last spring break is over
Someone saved your life tonight
