Yeah, rereading exams doesn't seem useful at all to me without having the original fact pattern to compare it to. I put that shit out of mind weeks ago.

Makes sense. Thanks, Mal. I didn't want to see them anyway. :twisted:

Wait, that's not funny at all. This board needs a killself emoticon.

truth. I got my grade, stared at the screen, refreshed the page twice, and thought "I really didn't want to know about this after all."


one grade which isn't exactly great makes you so much more anxious and fearful of the rest. I got my property grade (medianish) an hour ago and I have already downed a 6 pack. Now the waiting for the rest of them will be even more terrible :evil:

To counter, getting 3 phenomenal grades puts images of sugar plums and fairies dancing in my head, but if that last grade comes and is awful, the sugar plums and fairies will be torched and die a fiery death on my brain, which will probably be painful (to the sugar plums and fairies as well as me).

I'm just being ridiculous because I've somehow convinced myself (after rereading the exam 3 times) that my last grade will be awful. Ignore me. I'm being an idiot. We'll see what happens.

And if CLS is Columbia, then I'll gladly switch spots with you :-P grade wise and school wise!

Looks like another Contracts section will have a grade posted today... but not for my section. FML.

wait... what? I only see Setear's course evaluations up on Lawweb. (This is how neurotic grades have made me; getting one grade has only made it worse)

Edit: nevermind, I see now.

I'm showing course evaluations up for Johnson also, which is new as of this morning.

Just got a lovely email from the registrar that our grades will be posted on January 25th. The same email also made it very clear that Professors need not actually have them submitted by that point. The 25th, apparently, is the day when the school will begin pestering professors to submit the grades.

That's a long ass wait.

got my contracts grade today - 92. I need the torts grade to be 90+ to be top 25%. Unfortunately i felt the worse coming out of torts relative to most of the people I talked to.

This is so frustrating. Last week I thought the suffering would end once I got my first grade. I don't think it makes a difference - I won't be satisfied until I have them all.

I just need enough to bust my pipedream of being above the median, then I won't be looking forward to them.

Since it could take until late to mid February


Seriously? That's brutal.

One of our professors has a reputation for not starting to grade exams until Feb. 1, and I don't know how much truth there is to that, so who knows how long it will actually be.

, I think we'll have a lot of drinking to do once we're all back in Cville. When do you get into town?


Ugh. Did you say you got confirmation from someone that he really, truly does wait that long to turn in grades? I used to think it was funny, but now it just sounds excruciating. I may wait until both remaining grades are up before I check either; I can't stomach another single grade and all the hypotheticals running through my mind afterward.

Our section is still the only section gradeless in a class (all grades were due yesterday morning and were to be posted immediately afterwards). We've received no word as to why or when we should expect a grade. We've heard rumors, but that's it.

We think(???) there's a decent chance it's posted sometime in the next 50 minutes. We've all been obsessively refreshing the grade site all day long. This is truly sad. My stomach hurts.
