Hi. Tomorrow will be my 5th day of classes and my grades don't come out until the 25th.

And the last grade is reported.

A- in Legal Writing. I'll be honest, I'm a little annoyed about that. Luckily, it doesn't count towards GPA.

If you were anything like my buying habits, half the supplements were a waste of money. Hornbooks? What was I thinking?

i definitely do this. and practically IRL this is probably not normal. but theoretically the issues /can/ get complex and mind-boggling, at least imo.

Contracts: B
Property: A
Crim Law: B

Definitely room to improve, especially compared to my peers in this thread... but after my exam experience, getting an A in Property has got me walking on fucking sunshine.

I think last year they said Monday, but actually released them on Friday. I'm probably not going to check until we get back to Ithaca, but in case my curiosity gets the better of me, where do I look? Blackboard?

Also,

Contracts: B+
Property: A-
Crim: A-

God damn my terrible time management on the Ks test. It could/should have been my A+.


Ha, same across the board here. My guess is we're somewhere in the ~30-35% range but who knows.

With a 3.57? You guys have to be higher than that. 3.62 is top 10% at my school I think (curving to 3.25).

A 2L told me that the cutoff for top third is usually 3.4ish, but UIUC only ranks the top 10% and then publishes the cutoff for top third.

Do they rank every semester? When should we get those?

And yeah, the numbers I've heard for those of us at Illinois have been:

Median: 3.2

Top 1/3rd: 3.4

Top 10%: 3.7
