sorta seems like cheating. after you get past 1L the curve is much more relaxed and not even applied in some classes. so those transfer magna cum laude grads may not have even been in the top half of the class had they started as first years

much harder/riskier to "just do transfer" in lolschool. it's not cheating like some premed going to a joke community college and getting easy A's there before transferring to big state. given the difficulty of getting top 1L grades and transferring, nobody can PLAN that path.

but yes, that's the system

Yea no shit. Ever interact with summa cum laude, order of the coif, or the EIC of the Law Review? They're ALL strivers. Maybe 1/50 will be head and shoulders more intelligent than their peers, but 98% of the time it's just a smart person with the striver gene. This is why law is full of insufferable people at the top, because in order to gain access to biglaw, bigfed, etc., you need to get strivers to like you and strivers ONLY like other strivers.

i mostly agree. however, i think what you're saying is only true of the VERY top.

the LR EIC, yes he's mostly to be an insufferable douche striver who is no smarter than the rest of the guys on the law review. if you took the LR EICs from the top schools and compared them to the LR kids in general, you'll surely find only rare cases there the EIC is any smarter.

same is true of the scotus clerks vs. the top people who just go to v5 biglaw and dont even bother to clekr.

however, if you take all the top 10% / coif kids at the top schools and compard them to the cohort of middle of the class folks, you'll surely find that the former cohort is smarter than the latter. sure, there are unsmart strivers who make it and smart lazies who dont, but doing well doesnt require the same disgusting striverism as being at the very top
