I think it runs from like the 17th til like the 24th (not sure, I can't really remember). But yeah, the deadline is definitely not tomorrow. It opens up next week.


Gotcha, thanks. I figured they wouldn't have the deadline tomorrow and not say anything.

I got an email from the registrar's office saying that grades were updated. I opened the email, only to find a PDF where the updated classes were listed....none of mine were on there :x I feel like a can't get motivated to do anything this semester until I have my GPA. Annoying.....

About two weeks ago this was as bad as waiting for LSAT scores. Now this is several hundred times worse than waiting for LSAT scores.


+1. With the LSAT at least you could retake it if you did poorly. Here... not so much.

I'm basically "on strike" until I see my GPA.

It's not even that for me though, it's just the amount of time we've had to wait, the uncertainty surrounding how you did, and the fact that we're already digging into spring semester material without having any closure on the fall.

But if they can't, we are stuck waiting until next week. I wanted to send out a bunch of apps/app updates this weekend once I have the grades officially. Now I can't even do that over the long weekend. I whined about this before, but hadn't heard it from the registrar myself at that point. This is my official complaining.


Dude. This sucks.

Anyone know where I can find percentile rank/GPA for Catholic? For some reason they aren't on the NALP website. Would be much appreciated.

8 AM tomorrow ours are finally coming. I'm waking up, my friends are coming over, and breaking out the alcohol before class isn't out of the question. Either that or going to the convenience store and buying tons of junk food.

I'd throw a party for the ages if I hit top 25%. My classmates consistently amaze me with how smart they are. If by any standard I did better than 3/4 of them, it would blow my mind.

You might be overestimating the competition. Prior to Law School I thought I would rank at the very top. Once Law School began I questioned my competence (everyone else seemed so damn smart). Once results came out I found out I was at the very top of the class.

Takeaway? You just might surprise yourself.

I literally started hyperventalating and then I got them, convinced I was getting like a C and 2 B-'s, and I got my grades and I did fine. 3.5 GPA - so I keep my scholarship, and possibly have a shot at jobs. I mean, i don't know where this puts me rank wise, all I know is it's above the curve. Anyway, I almost started happy crying, and I called my dad still kind of hyperventalating and he thought something was really wrong, and I'm just like "No! I did fine in law school!" He was just confused. haha. After how obsessed my dad was with grades, I thought he'd be happier.

Anyway, now comes the time. I think our school has a 3.2 curve... anyone know roughly the rank? I guestimated top 35ish, but I have no idea. Hope it's not lower than that.

I have no idea how your curve works but generally speaking a 3.5 is well over a 3.2. That's a great job. Congrats!
