Three of my four profs are receptive to this so far. The problem is that the one exam I most need to see is from the fourth, and I haven't been able to get ahold of him yet.


...Harrison?

BTW, I don't meant that is in "I assume Harrison's is the exam you need to see"; rather, I assume (from prior experience) that Harrison is the one with whom you're having trouble getting in touch.

Does Low let us get our graded exams back?

Most of the professors seem to put their graded exams with their secretaries, and you can go and "check out" your exam from them temporarily (you can't wander off with it and it must be returned as soon as you're done reading it), and while Low's aren't with his secretary yet I believe they will be soon.

Woohoo! Considering I didn't read any of those cases from the first part of the semester I want to see what he thought of my answers.

found out my professors have a deadline that isn't enforced, so I will never get the rest of my grades.

Apparently not all of our grades are in, while deadline was yesterday. Our deadline is merely a suggestion, it seems. All in, I've heard so many conflicting fucking things about our grades. The worst part of all of this is that none of it is coming directly from registrar. The registrar, or Administration in general has made no statement or announcement about grades at all. The only thing we are getting is from professors that have "talked to the registrar" and then make some statement that turns out to be false. FUCK



Our deadline is just a suggestion as well. I've heard that some of my professors have not gotten grades out til late february before.

Honestly, there's not a lot a school can do if the professor is tenured. As one of our professors told us, say whatever you want on the evals, I'm tenured.

For me, it was more about talking about shit after grades, where you knew or should have known my feelings on not having them.

But I know I've turned a corner in my academic career when I am legitimately frustrated I missed a CALI in a 50+ person class by two wrong MC questions on an exam. ahhhhhhh im turning into one of those grade snobs i always hated in college.

You're half way to a great year. Half way. That's both a compliment and a warning. Firms hire on a full year's grades, judges hire on two, and honors go out on three.


Fucking changed my life.

What are these CALI awards that you guys are talking about? I'm guessing there's an award for getting the top grade in a class? Did you have to do CALI lessons?
