All grades are in. Just barely on the south side of the 3.X00 mark I was aiming for, but I'll take it. Grades are somewhere between DLA Piper and Jenner DC. Looks like I'll be able to get a job and feed my future children. I did well, but seriously, fuck law school.

Sitting here waiting like an idiot. The school gives professors a month after finals to turn grades in. We still have not got back a grade from an LRW assignment done BEFORE Chistmas. Last final was over 3 weeks ago. They are dragging their feet. Why can they not at least give us a clue how we did? Why do they wait for one professor who waits until the last minute? I honestly thought we'd have them back by now. This is insanity though. Pure insanity.

Congrats! And this semester it looks like IJKL is last to get our grades. Still waiting on Con Law; right now my GPA is practically where it was after fall. As long as I can keep it I'll be happy.

Eh, but then again, maybe your classmates would have just tried harder if they were graded. Who knows.

Curves are weird, law school grading makes no sense, and I have a complete inability to predict my grades.

Agreed I seriously cannot figure out why I got the grades I got. Some were good others were great and others were awful. I studied the same, understood the material the same. I tried to tailor my studying/analysis to my professor's style and I though I did that well in all of my classes. But seriously I have no explanation for the wide varations.

I CALI'd Con Lawl; I'm honestly shocked but obviously elated. I bitched and moaned about the class all semester because our professor turned it into a psuedo-philosophy class (none of which was actually on the final). I, by far, disliked that class more than any other class. I checked my grade about five times today to make sure it wasn't a mistake. Curve ftw?

They're all back:

Civ Pro- A
Con Law- A
Property- A
LRW- B+
Con Crim Pro- B+

Hoping first semester didn't keep me completely out of law review hunt.

Congrats! :)

So turns out my ConLawl grade will not be in today and we're getting it Monday (along with Crim). Monday is going to be either the worst day ever or the best day ever (but on the plus side, I won't be in this awful state of limbo anymore).

You really have no idea how much graded LRW sucks
