This thread could easily become a support group for those of us who experience a free fall.

I guess that's the good thing about not having done all that well last semester. I mean, I COULD go down, but odds are better that I will see an increase or at least stay the same this semester.

My fall grades sucked, and I worked a lot harder last semester than I did this semester...

I did too, but I get the feeling that the extra work didn't help any.

I have a very clear image of full B's rolling in next month.


This.

LRW: B/B- I was median pwned on the brief.
Con Lawl: B/B+ I hadn't the slightest clue what the professor wanted. It's a shame too because this was my favorite class.
Civ Pro: B+/A- I hated this class, but I felt decent coming out of the exam. Similar feeling after last semester's exam (A-).
Ks: A- The professor has a generous curve, writes a 3 hour exam and gives you 4 hours, and makes what she wants painfully clear. I won't rule out being curve pwned entirely, though.
Property: B- I think I missed a MAJOR issue on the long essay question. I said at the beginning of the semester this was going to be another Torts (B), and I think it will be.

Free falling GPA commences in 4 weeks.

I asked a 2L who said last year they came out on June 1. I imagine some time around then, but who knows?

Anyone know when grades come out at HLS? I'm guessing late June, considering the 5 week wait last semester, but maybe there's a quicker turnaround in the spring ... ?

I don't predict anything wonderful but I feel like I felt the exact same way last semester so I'm hoping the curve treats me just as kindly. For the amount of stress endured, better remain in the top 10% :cry:

Essentially a lot of feelings with no certainty...ONWARDS LADIES AND GENTLEMEN

Been done for a couple days so far. Got my LW grade back and am happy with it. My contracts grade should be okay. I'm really dreading property, con law, and legislation.

Signing back onto this thread for spring semester grade waiting... prob shouldn't though... I heard grades don't generally come back at my school until near the end of June..

How do people already know all their grades? Am I missing something? I thought all schools had at least a 3-week turn around..

Then again, I think my LR grade might be coming out soon (that class ended early). I don't want to see any of my grades until all are back though....

Arrrgggh.. I should stay away from this thread. :x

Finished yesterday. No clue how some of my grades will turn out, but i'll give the predictions a shot.

Legal Research- A, hopefully. Final was only like 45% and I had a good start
Legal Writing- Anywhere from B- to A... no clue
Con Law- B+, maybe A- if insanely lucky. Counting on the curve. Brutal exam that I heard many did not finish...
Civ Pro- A-
Sales- A- hopefully. Terrible final, but 35% of my grade was already settled going in.
Legal Profession- B+ super tight curve, everybody pretty much ends up with the same grade I'm told...

Great, the feared daydreams return. I'll be doing something normal and then all of a sudden I'll just picture checking my grades and seeing straight Bs. Sweet depression, how I've missed you.
