I had a dream last night I got a C- in Contracts. Possibly one of the worst dreams I've ever had. Thankfully the mental strain of calculating my GPA in my dream woke me up.

NU posters are conspicuously absent from this thread. Probably because they're partying with this guy:

Thanks guys! I thought it might not be as great because my best friend got a 3.7 - but, I still can't stop smiling. It's kind of pathetic.

I had a dream that they gave us out our grades while we were at a dance, so we all stop and go into the computer lab. And they give us out grades on a mini ferris wheel, and the grades are written on dog tags. So, I got mine, and dropped them, and only saw a b+ in torts before I dropped them all. And I couldn't find the others and was freaking out. Then I woke up the minute grades were scheduled to come out.

Thinking about calling the registrar and just being like, "Hi, I know your office is really busy and I don't want to nag about grades, but do you know if we should be expect Professor X's torts grade today? I know there is a 4 week turnaround rule for professors and that was yesterday, and for my sanity and the sanity of my classmates, I was wondering if we should be checking it today or if we'll have to wait until next week."

They released all of our grades at once, yesterday evening (right before bar review). Many people are probably hungover/still drunk from celebrating or drowning their sorrows last night.

In that range where it's nowhere near was good as I had hoped and nowhere near as bad as I feared.

I've still got one more grade to go but that won't come til mid feb at the earliest. Unless I get a B- on that I should be fine.

I got to work more next semester and figure out LRW.

I definitely hurt myself by not working harder. But my highest grade by far was in a class I used someone elses outline.

I think the TCR for me is someone elses outline, with edits by me, plus a shit ton of practice tests.

I felt good about Torts but we'll see.

Nobody did bad. But I'm not sure if anyone rocked it. About right for failures like us.

One of us rocked it like Ike rocked Tina. Not me, but one of us did.

Same and same. (Well, they put up info for LWR but the "grade" is "IP" - which seems to mean In Process or some such. grumble.)

While NW doesn't give a rank, I would be curious to see if I am last in the class. I feel it is actually a possibility.

Helm - Nope. But I am happy with where I ended up.


I also now believe the people who say your grades can be inversely related to how you felt about the exam.

I had the exact opposite experience. I knew I handed crim its ass when I walked out, and I was right.
