Exams/ Grades

From Orin Kerr. Still reads like very good to us. A snippet:

"All grades do is measure how well you did relative to your classmates on a few 3-hour exams taken at a particular place at a particular time. They’re only a snapshot of how well you displayed your ability at one particular time in the judgment of one particular professor, rather than a Scarlet Letter (whether A, B, or worse) sewn on for life."
