This will entirely depend on your LRW instructor. Try not to stress!hls2022fella wrote: ↑Fri Nov 29, 2019 6:26 pmAnyone get an H in LRW despite having some typos/orthography mistakes? For some reason my eyes didn't catch them the first time around, but today I saw them. Can good research/structure override some errors, or do only super polished essays stand a chance at an H?
Discuss comparisons of various school choices and the various metrics that inform them, including rankings, student life, location, etc.
Anyone know how many LPs Rubenstein usually gives out for CivPro? I didn't allocate my time that well and didn't mention everything I should have, only got like 3,800 words down. Should I be worried?
You're probably totally fine! It's super natural to feel like you did bad after an exam when you really did just fine. FWIW, one of his TAs told me that Rubenstein doesn't actually give LPs anymore but that he likes to promote the rumor that he still does so people take his class/exam seriously. Take that rumor for what it's worth - I know I found comfort in it as a 1L
That's like 500 words more than any 3-hour exam essay that I've ever produced.
Do you think it would reflect poorly upon me to email my Winter Term professor to ask whether they're using a Credit/Fail or H/P grading system? Someone told me that all 1L j-term classes were Credit/Fail, but someone at the registrar told me that they thought it was H/P. Not proud to say it, but the grading difference might impact my effort a bit.
1L J-term classes are credit/fail. It should say so in the syllabus/on canvas.Borges_and_barbells wrote: ↑Tue Jan 07, 2020 2:59 pmDo you think it would reflect poorly upon me to email my Winter Term professor to ask whether they're using a Credit/Fail or H/P grading system?

My fall grades have always come at once but sometimes professors submit late so there’s a lag - that seems to especially happen with Spring grades. The past two years they’ve been released on 1/26 and 1/30; not sure how it will work with the new plan to release grades earlier to those who completed all course evals.
Hi! Is it reasonable for admitted students to email professors (admitted recently) about opportunities in a specific research area? I'm curious, though I'm unsure if it would be to aggressive to contact faculty this early.
My opinion: it depends. In particular it depends on your credentials and your topic. Paradigmatic "reasonable" case: you have a PhD and are going to law school to continue a course of research in a field that the professor you want to email also works in. No reason not to start building those connections. Paradigmatic "not" case: you are coming out of undergrad and are just gunning. Short answer, I guess, would be that if you have demonstrable academic credentials then this could be ok, but if you don't then I would avoid it.
Others may have a different view. Most professors are very nice, and worst case they just reply saying you should find them when you get to campus.
I definitely agree, a PLAP case is a much better use of your time. That being said, the 1L journal commitment is ridiculously small so it wouldn't be a big deal to spend an afternoon subciting to put it on your resume.
Any speculation on whether a 1H/4P 1L who just goes C/F on all (or almost all) their second semester classes will be in a tough spot? Will law firms still just count the Hs, thus making going C/F an unwise choice?
How are Research Assistants paid during the summer at HLS? Are they paid? I haven't nailed down an internship yet (though I'm still looking) but I asked a professor and they said that they would have me as a RA. Does funding come from a central HLS office, or just out of the professor's pocket?
