Ahh...the advantages of not revealing your identity on TLS....


If you've revealed your school on TLS, you probably just revealed your identity :wink: .

please correct me if i'm wrong though, as i'm anxiously waiting


My understanding is that they come out some time between Jan 11 and Jan 17. The delay is to prevent us from taking our grades into account for where to apply for the PILC fair.

Hasn't prevented me from checking Albert every day.

B+ in Torts (completely forgot to answer part of a question, prob cost me an A :( )
B in Criminal Law, this was my favorite class, and what I want to do with my life, kinda disappointed in myself :/

still on pace to be top 15-20% (at a T2 with a HARSH C+ curve), but I know I can do better

This is ten times worse than waiting on an LSAT score, imo.

Decently happy with my grades, and pretty un-anonymous, so no grade posting, but seriously are we the ONLY school that gets grades for Legal Rhetoric?

No. Other schools also have legal (reasoning/writing/research/rhetoric/other random name) as a graded course.

Of course. LSAT scores are coming out now, and it's been a real hoot hanging around the LSAT forum. Some of those folks are way too stressed to succeed in this profession.

My school gives letter grades too. But, the grade isn't a part of overall GPA or class rank.

Oh. Ours is part of the class rank... An insane amount of work for 2 credits... blah.

seconded.

I just want some sort of idea of how I did last semester. Even one grade would be nice. Hell even a confirmation that I passed the legal writing course would be nice at this point.

I wonder if anyone has ever ended up top 10-15% and failed legal research. It's 0 credits, so it's possible.

Legal Research & Writing is awesome. I wish it was worth more credits. Y'all are just haters. Or I'm a freak :oops: :oops: .

But seriously, I think most people overthink LRW. It's not that difficult and it's really not that time consuming if you space it out well.

This might happen to me.

Well, not necessarily Top 10-15%, but I definitely don't like my odds for my legal research class as opposed to my substantive courses.

+1, I loved LAWR. I didn't spend as much time on it as I would have liked to just because I knew it wasn't worth an enormous portion time for only two credits. Believe me, though, I would have rather spent 80% of my time working on briefs and fishing out legal tests than reading cases and going over them in class the next day.

A- in contracts. I had no clue what was going on in this class all semester, probably bought every single supplement you could imagine for it. Pumped.

W&M - got my criminal law grade 2 weeks ago, Torts and CivPro have been on hold until now. Torts exam was on Dec9th with 50% multiple choice scantron.... I am sick of checking the transcript thing.
