The number of C grades that Hastings College of the Law doles out has much of the student body in a tizzy. The Hastings curve allows students to earn 20 percent A's, 60 percent B's and 20 percent C's. "I think the perception is, among many students, that having a C on your transcript harms your chances of competing," said third-year student Andrew Ziaja, who authored an opinion poll that found slightly more than 80 percent of the 543 respondents were unhappy with the school's grading system.
