Now I just need to figure out if I want to stay where I am at or transfer. I think I'll be able to land a really nice summer gig out here but I don't know if I plan on staying here long term.

My first grade is a decidedly median B+ in Contracts.

The test I thought I did the best in.

No joke: after I got my grades I had to look up our grading scale because I'd forgotten almost everything about it.

Fucking agreed.

Are Michigan grades coming out today? Good luck Michigan people!

+1 to all of this

I was like...these numbers. What do they mean?

UTexas all grades reporting. Beyond happy, and owe a LOT to TLS.

Civ Pro: B
Contracts: A
Property: A
LRW: A

Out of curiosity, anyone else's Civ Pro exam 100% multiple choice and open book? Ours was 40 questions total, 4 hr exam, and last year's class tells me 19/40 earned an A. I would love to see the raw data from that exam because I doubt there's any statistically significant difference between an A- and a B-.

Time for some Scotch!

Perhaps everyone should have had a useful sticky with grade ranges? That's all I accomplished in Property today.

What the fuck kind of curve exists where 47.5% of the class gets an A?

^^ guessing you needed to get 19/40 MC questions correct to get an A.

BU's grades all came out this afternoon, too. What is frustrating is we have no idea how we rank (top 10%, 25%, etc.) They won't tell us until the end of 1L. It's hard to figure out whether to celebrate or be sad. :-)

Our deadline is next Friday. They trickle out though, but my first grade came out today. Every other section has two grades at this point I believe.

I think it's a good thing. It means we don't have to worry about class rank cut-offs for summer employment. And more time to improve next semester!

Congrats! I should note that not all Texas grades are in - apparently the word on the street is profs get a 2-week extension if they ask. Looks like my small section prof did that.

Thanks! And sorry about that, you'd think a prof with only ~23 students could get 'em done in 5 weeks. Good luck.

Page 36 of your Student Handbook has a rough answer. :wink:

How lame that you have an option for A+/4.3 on a 3.3 curve... :twisted:
