Doe Eyed Enthusiasm

One of my classes is a mixed class, which means it has 1L's in it as well as 2L's and 3L's. I can mostly tell who is in what class just by looking at them. The 1L's are overly eager to speak and raise their hand at every opportunity. The 2L's look somewhat down trodden and tired - they're beginning to realize they made a mistake in choosing law school. The 3L's all look disinterested. It's interesting to see how just a year or year and a half can change your outlook.

Why in God's name are 1Ls being allowed to comingle with the upperclassmen? What the hell happened to 1L seggregation?!

No idea. I think it's our law school's way of introducing them to the "cool" classes that they can look forward to. Really, it's just a nice way to inflate their GPA's; the 3L's will all be at the bottom of the curve.

One of the adjuncts at my school told me the 3L average in his class was a 2.6. Note to 2Ls: that's a lot of room at the top of that curve.

1Ls should be quarantined for their own and everyone else's sanity.

UPDATES! Come on 3Ls, what else do you have to be doing?
