Is a 93.6 in LRW an A or an A-?

Postby bkthunder » Tue May 04, 2010 12:59 pm

Just picked up the grade for my last LRW assignment and my total grade for all assignments adds up to 936/1000 points or 93.6%. The mean of all grades has to fall between 3.0 and 3.2...I have to wait probably til late May/June to see if my teacher gives me an A- or an A...

You should just be happy that humility and common sense weren't part of the grading standard.

At my school (which probably has identical policies to yours), grades are 0-5 A, 6-10 A-, 11-15 B+....90-100 F. You just failed LRW. Go home and pack your shit. It's over.

For me it would be a "P" instead of an "F"

Hope that helps.

Check your syllabus. I'm not in law school, but in my grad school classes 93% and above is A.

The curve determines the grade, not the number of points. If half the class got 93% of the points, he gets a B-.

Thanks for the serious responses. Sorry if the question came off as douchey, not my intention.

I don't understand how you don't know the answer to this question at the end of 2nd semester of law school...

Wouldn't it all depend on the curve...? If you have a LRW class of 20 people or so, and there is one A and two A- to give out, and there is a guy with a better grade than you, you're looking at an A-. In fact, if THREE people have higher scores than you, you're getting a B+.

Err, right?

+1, even with a weaker LRW curve they had to send our grades back twice to make it work cause of too many A's...so ya enjoy your B.

My hypothesis: OP spent so much time rocking his LRW assignments that he missed out on making any actual friends at school with whom he could share his great news (seriously, an A or A- in any LS class is great news!) so that he had to couch his justifiable excitement in a retarded fake question sent out to the interwebz in search of some kind of anonymous cyber 'atta boy. :oops:

Ha, I'll bite. What you said is partially true- classwork came ahead of LS friends consistently all year (which I'd guess is true for most 1L's), partly because I don't wanna be jobless when I graduate and partly because I've been planning on transferring out since day 1. I don't really discuss grades or single assignments thoroughly with my LS friends. However, the question wasn't fake, which most of you probably don't believe at this point, and even if it was, what's wrong with wanting a cyber atta-boy? Law students do so much work and get but only get feedback 2x a year anyway.
