This shtick is growing downright irritating. If you get higher grades than me this semester, you owe me more drinks than than I spent in tuition dollars this past year..

Not a shtick, I genuinely do not want to get grades back yet.


blah blah blah blah. The last part of the post is what matters. Remember it.


I don't particularly fear doing worse (nor do I think I did better), but until today I really didn't want grades back. So I believe she doesn't want them back.

Perhaps, but I recall a scenario eerily similar to this one last semester. How'd that turn out for everyone?

Oh the "OMG I"M GOING TO LITERAALLY FAILLL" is BS.


Just saying not wanting grades doesn't mean you think you did poorly.

Hopefully this is because the people in the A-/B+ range (me) are stealing all of your As because we didn't make stupid exam mistakes this time around.


QFMFT.

except i don't have any grades back yet, sooo...

Samsies, here's to dethroning those who shouldn't have got better grades than us first semester (and in the same vein, here's to making LAWL REVIEW)


Of all the friends I talk to about grades who were on Dean's List... every one of them did worse but one. Of my friends I talk about grades who weren't on Dean's List... all of them did better. I think the kids who didn't do well tend to even the playing field after their first semester feedback.

I did the exact same...

I don't think I'm going to actually fail, but I do not think I did nearly as well as 1st semester. Either way, don't want to know.

Holding steady with oddly similar results to last semester (mildly disappointed in one grade, thought the other class was my best class this past semester). Probably going to have a heart attack when ConLawl comes out tomorrow.

Civ Pro - B+ (I did okay and I am probably riding the curve on this one)
Property - B- (final was too easy, I will not survive the curve)
Con Law - C+ (I am being generous here. Only wrote four pages double spaced in 3 hours because I have no idea what to say)


Welp, my predictions were pretty damn close.

Crim Pro = B (right on the money)
Civ Pro = A- (studied the hardest for this class...kinda disappointed the curve didn't give me an A)
Property = B+ (sort of disappointed it wasn't a little bit higher, but I guess that's what happens when you get an easy final)
Con Law = B+ (biggest surprise this semester...I literally went into the final without any outline)

Not TLS material, but I would say it correlates quite well with the lack of effort I put in this semester.

I've decided I don't want my grades - ever. I wish the SAO would just email me my new GPA, or better yet the name of the place I'll be working upon graduation. V100? PI? McDonald's? I JUST WANT TO KNOW.

All grades in. Not terribly happy with this semester but definitely still decent. My girlfriend is mad at me for complaining about these grades haha. HelLWR + ConLaw = Likely no law review.

All grades in here as well. I got the same, exact grades as last semester; thus, my GPA will not be affected at all. A little disappointed in one grade, but I did pretty well so no major complaints here really. I'm relieved I didn't royally fuck up this semester as I felt this semester was so much harder.

Now, I can finally enjoy the summer (in between taking a summer class and externing that is). Woo!

A in conlaw

B+ in torts

B+ in civpro.

I'm confused about civpro, I thought it would be much better.

Not at all happy overall: Drops my gpa from 3.89 to 3.72. Ehhh...
