Could Be Worse

Someone at Pepperdine Law asked me how many hours I was taking this quarter. I said 12; they said that’s not so bad. So I added it up and it turns out the correct response would have been 26.75.

PC II: 10 hours
PC I: 8.75 hours
Double sessions: 2 hours
Exercises: 4 hours
PR: 2 hours

Total: 26.75 hours

On the Brightside, when it comes to paying for a class in which you hope to get a D, 12 hours is way better than 26.75.

Don't forget to tell them about the 25 second quiz.

It's kinda messed up that we only get credit for 12 hours. We spend anywhere from 25-30 hours a week IN CLASS! Isn't this illegal?

I understand that PC I and PC II were consolidated into one quarter in the early 1990s. Prior to that, students took what was then named Evidence before taking Practice Court.

26 hours sucks, but would you prefer prolonging the agony to three quarters?

Do you really want 26 hours? There are a lot of other great classes that you could take with those extra hours. As Serr would say, Baylor loves giving you more bang for your buck.

No. I want 26 hours so I can graduate and leave this fetid hellhole. Because what does 12 hours one quarter mean when you have to average 14? It means that in your non-PC, non first year quarters, you have to take well above 14 to average enough to graduate on time. Because Baylor Law has precisely one finely honed skill, and that is abusing you.

PCI and II dropped my GPA over a tenth of a point. Thank God it was only 10 credits.

Sorry 9:09 I guess I wasn't as concerned with my damn GPA as you. One tenth of a point? Who gives a rat's ass about that at this point anyway?
More than 12 hours would be great so we don't have to actually "make-up" these hours somewhere else (as well stated above).

haha.... we're in class 26 hours a week, and yet falling behind in our graduation requirement.

And yes that IS illegal... not to mention shady.
