i think half of our supersection got their legal writing grades back today, so i believe now we are the only small section that hasnt got a grade back yet.

that being said, who didnt see this coming from our property and legal writing professors?


I feel bad for you guys. I'm not even content with receiving just one grade so far!

I was actually holding it together pretty well until I got my property exam grade yesterday. Now I am really, really anxious.


Every grade you get makes you more anxious to get the rest.

I'm actually less anxious after getting my first two. Maybe it's because I know they're not coming for at least another week, so I can relax until then.

It is probably better when you actually know, or have a rough idea of, when they are coming. I'm just waiting on Property, and we have four sections taught by our professor, 2 sections at one time and 2 sections at another time. We all took the test at the same time, though, and the other 2 sections had their exams back on December 18th, 10 days after we took the exam. No idea why it is taking so long for the other 2 sections to get our exams back. Needless to say, they could pop up at any minute, so I pretty much just check on my phone every hour. It's a disease.

Depends on the school and their curve.

I'm waiting on my last grade. We have a C+ curve. If I get an A in K's Ill be roughly .07 from top 5%, a B+ puts might right inside the top 10% and a B puts me in the top 15%. Thats with a stupid C+ in LRW.

I just think that the impropriety of such behavior increases as the rank of offender's school decreases. Apologies if I offended you though.

Hope you did pretty well on Property. I'm at the "not-stellar, but still not bad by any means" mark. Still wish I didn't find out about it (through facbeook nonetheless) because now I'm having the compulsion to refresh the transcript page every five minutes, so essentially my break is ruined.

It also turned out that Section F can pick up their Open Memos today at least, but who knows when the actual grade for the course is going to come in.

I didn't really mean much by saying it was a neighboring T2. I was being more descriptive than pejorative.

I don't think you were pejorative at all. Congrats on your grades.

You might be on to something there. I'm at a tier 2, and if I get above median I'll be so happy I'm gonna send a video of myself moonwalking to ATL.

Section E just got their open memo grades back. Pretty much what I expected.

I could have predicted as much.

But I really thought P. Smitty would have handed them in. I know she's new, but she was always really on the ball and focused...plus she only has 50 exams to grade.

do not speak ill of professor smith! i will not have it! haha

i think she also probably has to have some conversations about understanding how the curve here and finding out who to talk to at the registrar, there may be more than meets the eye here.

also, her whole thing was that she wanted you to demonstrate that you understood the concepts which means she has to kind of read into things a little more than people who say i will give you points for correctly naming an issue and if you speak about it but do not mention it by name then you get no/less points

As is Columbia, I have not heard a peep. LPW was 2 months ago, CivPro was a month ago and Ks was three weeks ago (small section only 30 students), Torts was our last exam and my professor had 250+ students so I am not expecting that one until May.

at this point only being a *little* below median would be a huge win

we had a professor write us yesterday to tell us that she submitted our grades, but that they won't necessarily show up for a few more days. torture. I was doing sooo well with putting it in the back of my mind until I read that email.

I'm flummoxed that my civ pro prof hasn't yet posted grades from her scantron-only exam. Another section got its multiple choice test results the day after finals ended.

I'd post a link to a Pee Wee secret word of the day video if I could find it. That s*** still manages to crack me up.
