I promise you that no one in my section failed to finish an exam. It sucks actually. Another thing that's weird about my section is that a lot of people openly share grades.


Being a gunner, not bathing, and studying like a fiend doesn't mean you're actually any good at taking law school exams.

My section was very non-gunnerish, social, good at softball, and we crushed it on grades.

Why was I not informed this was conducive to doing well? I didn't see it in any of the TLS guides :(


I heard its 25% of your grade at UVA.

During UVA exams you have to chug a beer after every 500 words.

Still no grades back, though the other sections mostly have all theirs. Had my first class today and the professor was absolutely shocked we hadn't gotten our first semester grades yet. Apparently, she had submitted them a few days before we even went on break. She says she had never heard of anyone not having any of their grades back by time class started again. After class I went to the registrar's office to rabble rouse, they told me I should keep checking for them every day and they hope to have them posted by the end of the week.

On the bright side, its refreshing to be able to channel some of my anxiety into rage.

Hoping my theory that my school won't post grades while people are actually IN class will pan out, and my last grade will be up within the next couple hours.

In the mean time, I really should go grocery shopping...

:lol: Nice.

What section are you in? You seriously don't have any grades at all yet? I thought everyone had at least one.

Also, you in STL? I'm thinking about going somewhere to watch the game tonight.


I don't have a single stinking grade yet. Not one. Not even a raw score for my memo.

I'm with Strat, the only "grade" I have is an open memo score. It's been over 4 weeks for property and 4 weeks for Ks, CSO shit starts tomorrow and it will be hard to focus on what kind of job I want when I don't even know what to aim for. Therefore I might just booze it hard all week and skip most of this shit.

If you're a 1L your grades shouldn't be all that determinative of what you should aim for.

I don't care if I'm outed and I don't care if I'm grade bragging - I got an A in CivPro!!! I am floored considering how much I screwed up the exam. I'm seriously crying that I'm so happy. I absolutely cannot believe it. I thought I was heading for a C+.

Before I got my first one, I was really good and only checked it once a day. Once I got my first grade, I started checking more and more frequently and I'm probably up to 10-12 times a day on weekdays and once or twice on the weekend, just for good measure in case someone is working overtime. :lol:

Is this normal, or am I losing all self-control?


Like I've said before, the more grades you get in, the more often you check. It's weird...

But yeah, I'm checking at about the same rate.


we get all our grades at the same time.

I dont know if I should be happy about that or sad.

The other two sections at Pitt have both gotten 2 grades back. My section has received none.
