dfsladslfl... now I'm really on edge for my final 2 grades. Feel like I have something to lose...

Start calculating a few non As in to the mix, and see what that does to your GPA.


Yeah, that shit sucks.


Yeah, I feel sorry for you guys. That's rough.

It's like winning the lottery then thinking about what it would be like to LOSE millions of dollars. OMG that would suck so bad.

My prayers are with you.

I appreciate your prayers especially. Grades are stressful for everyone bruh. Don't hate.

Hey, I take it as good news. I was talking to another 1L the other day, and we decided that if TTON was getting bad grades, it was just a law school grading apocalypse and we should give up preemptively ;)


Ha. I don't mind being on the sharp end of sarcasm, but that is harsh;)

I know how it feels. I can't ask for advice because I'm not anonymous. I had as well make a facebook status update with it.


Yeah, one of mine is probably going to be posted tonight or tomorrow. I think it might be time to buy a blindfold, some cigarettes, and quit TLS for a month or so :P

It's funny how TLS works great as an anonymous outlet, then you get excited to meet people here you'll know IRL (or vice versa), and then all of the sudden it loses at least some of its initial charm. Oh well.


Don't be silly. Your grades will be perfectly enviable, and anyway, your curve is kinder than ours. You and your classmates are lucky.

I know enough TLSers IRL that I have to be very, very careful what I post. In a way, it's a good thing, though. If I was ever tempted to rip someone a new one (and I have been), I'd have to keep my mouth shut. My admissions office also knows, but that's my own fault for being as discreet as a 90s Britney Spears video.

I'm insanely jealous of/so thankful that I'm not one of you people in Sections 2 or 3 or whatever. Still no grades back in Section 4 here...

Ah yes, OS the lurking hulk who often flies off the handle and insults people ;)


Didn't you know I had a TLS nemesis? I met her IRL, up at a party thrown by her classmates. It always bothered me that there was no way to put TLS squabbling behind us.

People fail to keep in mind that law school world is small. Everyone knows everyone else, and whatever you say or do eventually becomes common knowledge.

In a school with less than 200 1Ls, how the fuck can it take this long to grade?? Make the 2 and 3Ls wait; their fate was sealed long ago! Aaaahh.,

they should at least get grades back in time for us to drop out and get a full tuition refund.

I'd put money on not getting my torts grade until March.

I suspect they do this intentionally in order to curb attrition.

We should start a 'we're not getting our torts grades for a very, very long time' club. Our prof doesn't start grading until the deadline (feb 1) and has 90 1Ls + other classes, if the rumors are to be believed.


my torts professor hates torts.

Do you have any, superserial? I really need to know if my others are like the one I have. It's driving me up the wall, and I won't be able to sleep until I know...

no grades... I wouldn't be surprised if they were inconsistent though.

I was so nervous, but I barrelled through and checked them. You can do it too!
