I am very sorry to hear of those who did not do as equally well. I am very surprised because I believe that each of you are definitely more capable then I am at this whole process. For those whose grades have yet to come out, I wish you all the luck and success and I know that everyone here will get a great job and have a rewarding law career.

No apology needed Trucker! There is a big difference between what goes on in this thread, and what people say (unsolicited) around their section-mates. Its not like you were a jerk or anything about it. The entire purpose of this thread is to talk about the wait, support each others good and bad grades, and have a place to vent. I'd say grades talk is perfectly fine in here, so no worries! And congrats.

Bragging here is allowable.

Bragging in person gets you corsaired.

i supposedly get grades sometime this week

i have no idea what they'll be. i have no experience with this kind of grading scheme. in my college work, i was either right or wrong and some of it was so laughably difficult that i knew i was wrong. with this stuff i have no idea, and i'm at the point where i don't really remember what the exams were... we'll see what happens.

also was anyone else totally unaware that there can be such a long wait for grades? i had no idea.

I want to share my grades on here, but it's pretty obvious at my school who I am based on my TLS name, and I don't see much sense in sharing information with people when it is doubtful that they will reciprocate.

I feel like they are good enough to be happy about, but my torts grade was sort of a bummer after the good grades in Ks and Crim, so it's hard to be too cheerful.

Fordham 1L here still with zero grades. Had a property grade posted this morning and it now has been taken down as it was some kind of technical glitch. Incredible. Apparently the entire section got a B+, so about 50% of the section is going to be disappointed when the real grades hit... if they ever do.

Something about your screen name makes me think you are being unnecessarily vague :wink:


The screen name refers to my undergrad, but you could be onto something :wink:

The rollercoaster continues:

So far
Torts: A-
Crim: C+
Civ Pro: A

This is on a 2.85 median curve, which puts me pretty squarely at a 3.37, and into the top 25% with one grade yet to be released. Given that the grades have trickled in, and came in the order they did (A-, C+, A) it is definitely a roller coaster ride. I feel a lot better than I did this morning when I only had Torts and Crim, but we'll see what Contracts still has in store for me.

In other news, grades on Friday and I have no classes on Friday. Going to get hammered for the last time as a relatively normal person on Thursday night. Excited about that, still loathing grades... a lot.
