It was buried in an email from OCS, something like "transcripts will not be available until Jan 20th. After that date they can be printed from ALBERT"


Renzo, I can't get on your school's website! I need to upload more cover letters so I can take my mind off this horrible wait. It won't matter what my grades are because I'm never going to be employed.

We got an email that the servers are getting hammered, and lots of people have had the same problem. I'm digging for the direct link, which they said would help.

<3 Renzo.

It's still not working, unfortunately. I got a bunch in before the deadline, but I want to submit more, and I've been trying all evening. Is there any chance they'll give us more time?

NYU is the coolest T14 ever, but they need better servers!

I just gave up and decided to apply directly to employers because I can't deal with NYU's website crashing every five minutes.

I doubt they'll be giving any more time, the first email wasn't very sympathetic. It basically said they were sorry it sucked, and that they'd work on it, but to try and upload at off-peak times.

5 Classes w/ no grades released;
start tomorrow and they give us 6 classes 2nd semester;
FML.

And to answer the OP, yes this is much worse than waiting for the LSAT.

Don't feel too bad. Some of us don't start for another two weeks.

Sorry! I hope you get it in in time!! What type of places are you applying to? (Don't post it here, if you don't want. PM/IM instead if you're more comfortable)

another thing to consider while waiting for grades:

trying to make a last minute decision on my 2nd semester elective.

options are: corporations, environmental law, intellectual property and family law

have it narrowed down to family law and intellectual property now

worth noting family law has a lot of "homework" and "projects" and only 50 % of the grade is based on the final...

I have no vested interest in either subject. I'm leaning IP right now. Thoughts?

Family law? Like divorces and custody battles? Um, no.

Thank you. Just to make sure, are you checking your "View Grades" under "Enrollment" or "View Unofficial Transcript" under "Academic Records"? I don't have any grades in either yet, but just wondering if they both update at the same time or one is "the one" to watch.

You can check either; as far as I know, both update at the same time. I think if you check grades under the enrollment tab, they load faster. I use transcript, because I don't have to keep changing the term.
