I love it! Don't worry, I also checked a little while ago ... something inside of me thought that all of my banter on TLS alone may have actually changed my grade for the class in question!

Mine worked, there were no grades - so, no.


You guys are making me ill with suspense. I checked mine too, and nothing new.

I wish Fordham would do that.

Both grades I got make me violently ill, but in opposite directions. I can't believe I got both of those grades in the same semester, it doesn't seem possible.

Big time splitter? One professor I spoke with today who has been teaching for a million years struggled to believe that it was possible to receive an A+ and a B in the same semester.

What you are doing is no less transparent than posting your class rank.


Much agreed!

That is so ridiculous. The two new grades I just saw aren't what I was hoping for at all... I'm just really glad and relieved that all my grades are in and the wait is over.

...As you all will be when your grades are all up. (Have fun continuing the bitter parade until then.)

Don't feel bad. I'm pretty much in agreement with you (though quieter than critics). I'm happy that there are results, not necessarily with all the results.

Oh god. *returns from PM conversations with the Virginians* Oh god.

I think we have whiskey in our kitchen. Will my roommate notice if I drink the whole jug thing? (How am I going to be when I get my own Ks grade back?)

I'm still academically eligible to continue enrollment. That must count for something.

Can you be academically ineligble though? At NU, you have to have a 2.25 to graduate, but the lowest grade they most professors are willing to give out is a B-, or a 2.67.

Technically, it's impossible after one semester. At UVA, if your GPA falls to 2.30 or below at year's end, you may be "excluded" for academic deficiency.

Edit: for the record, I'm thankfully nowhere near a 2.30.

At first I thought that said "3.30" and I was gonna call you out for doucheness. But seeing as I can't read, there ya go.
