Yeah, my thoughts exactly. Congrats on the good grades, but complaining about being ~12%? Especially ITT?

I feel you; we're not even going to hit 80 tomorrow. We're supposed to top out at 79. And with 5mph wind, that's going to feel like 78. And we've had grades for several weeks, which could be good or bad.

Am I the only person at my school who is not too proud to flick back to this page over and over in the hopes that someone there will announce that their section's professors have posted a grade? I think so. I am probably going to get kicked out for being so insecure and maniacal. "Due by the 18th" does NOT mean you have to wait to the 18th to turn them in, my wonderful and esteemed professors... does it?

Lol much better. Though I'm guilty of the same thing. I realized that I was just around top 10%, but my first thought was "if I hadn't made that one big mistake on that one exam, it would be top 5%." But then I realized the craziness of complaining over it.

Agreed. Sorry all, I def did not want to come off as being disappointed. If it wasn't for this board, I prob would have been in kill self percentile.

I think unless you are #1, you are always going to be a LITTLE disappointed deep down because everyone can pick out SOMETHING they could have done different. I know there are some things I definitely could have done, and I certainly have those thoughts like, "Oh man, what if I would have..." But yeah, can't really come in here and complain about it, lol.

TLS only allowed my mind to enjoy top 17% for about 3 minutes.

Congratulations on your grade, though!

No grades yet, supposedly they come on friday.

I'd take 12% or 17% in a heart beat at this point.

PLEEEEEAAAASSSSEEEEE don't be below median.

I wonder if this two hour delay would interfere with my hopes of grades dropping today. Sigh.

I had a dream that I got an e-mail saying I was top 3.7%.

It felt so real.

fhsdpivhPSFBaliuhb. First grade-related dream. I think it's starting to get to me.

...And that's always the worst part.

BTW, I had way more dreams during exams than I did about grades. Probably because I drank a lot during break and I don't usually dream when I drink.

I had high hopes for this week, but apparently grades won't be released until next week (which probably means the end of next week). Ugh.

Man that is really rough. I feel for you guys who are still waiting, especially those of you (like delBarco) who've been in class for a while.

I complained a lot about not having mine, but in reality, my profs did a good job getting them back in a timely manner (well, except for legal practice, but at least our prof provided really detailed comments on our memos). I think all three of my exams were turned in within four weeks of the exam, which is the deadline.

+1. I also can't complain about my missing grade b/c the deadline is today and all of my other profs got their grades in either on time or early. So it really sucks for people who have to wait until late January or early February or who's professors are late with grades.

Also, I experienced grade dreams. They are the worst. Not looking forward to the repeat in May/June. On the plus side, I had a "Jets win dream" on Saturday night... :D.

The Jets winning would qualify as a night terror
