TITCR, but P = Princeton, so Penn is out. Tough luck.

Penn needs to make their curve harsher without changing my grades...

Registrar seemed to promise we were getting all grades on Monday, so I'm led to believe something went awry last minute. I'm unwilling to believe they actually just went home before completing the job.


They went home, lol

Did anyone else enjoy the don't kill yourself email that Dean Clinton sent out about grades yesterday? Remember, "grades do not define you." They just define your career path.

ooooh post it!

*Is curious*


I will summarize for you:

You all used to have 4.0s. Now, none of you have 4.0s. Suck it up.

If you're depressed by your sudden apparent failure at life, here's an extremely long list of people to talk to.

If you did badly, it's because YOU answered the question wrong. Don't go attacking a professor until you figure out what YOU did stupidly.

As a first semester 1L, you were doomed to working too hard for too few results. Now, learn to work efficiently.

Don't kill yourself.


But tbh, it was really a very nice letter and I appreciated it.

Maybe you just think it's okay to check because you're a gunner, though. :( :(

OP, those are pretty bad grades. Probably bottom 10-20%.

However, you can recover from that. You need to knock it out of the park this semester to have a chance. You will not be in good shape going in to OCI with those grades, but if you can pull >3.5 this semester then you may be able to recover.
