Just so y'all don't freak out when you inevitably wake up at 8 and start refreshing ACES like mad, there is a very good chance the grades wont actually be out tomorrow. Check once, but if they are not there just try and enjoy your weekend.


A member of the administration confirmed that today was the day.

I have taken my cue from wall street banks and have wired my new super powerful desktop computer directly into the law school's systems, so I get my refreshes done within 3.93 seconds. I assume accessing my grades .07 seconds faster will make me a billionaire.

Tough to tell. Probably varies between every five minutes and every five days.

Edit: Crap, now I keep looking. And I know they shouldn't be that great. Lame.

I don't care if you heard it from Dean Levi himself, that still does not necessarily mean they will come out today. So don't get too worked up. It is already 2, and they aint out. Maybe check again at the close of business, but I would not be surprised if they don't get posted today.

Releasing them on Monday or Tuesday wouldn't give the faculty enough time to run for cover.

I'm envisioning the registrar hitting the "release grades" button and then everybody sprinting out of the building at 5 PM.

I don't see why anyone would drop now. You only get 60% back (tuition only). I would say finish up this semester, go to OCI, and drop in the first weeks of class if no callbacks.

I agree. I'm just not good for much more than lame black humor at the moment.

I really wish they'd just get this over with already. I've been dreading it since before break and I just wanna get it over with. I shouldn't care too much; I plan on going into a field where they don't seem to matter all that much anyways.

Woo, going to have to wait all weekend. Governor just stayed my execution cause they didn't get the folding chairs setup for the audience in time.

No chance over the weekend right? I can enjoy it without being neurotic?

Yeah but I think that's true for like, 99% of people in the world. Caring about grades for the sake of making people think I'm smarter than I am is just an annoyance.

Kind of disgusted that grades aren't out. This is ridiculous.

Yeah, but it's still a different situation if you want Big Law vs Public Interest or a small DA's office. Everyone has to hustle, but at least median-ish grades are almost a prereq for the former.

Oh yeah, most definitely.

Edit: Just for the sake of full disclosure, I'm a real hippie when it comes to grades at the graduate (really, even the undergraduate) level.
