Only a few more hours until grades are released at my school. I just want to see them and get it over with....... All day they have been sending emails and leaving papers saying that grades don't matter so much and it's only one semster. They even left candy in one of my classes. I think they believe if they say it enough it'll actually be true.

How do you plan to suicide things go badly? I had prepared cyanide for myself.

The fact that they are pushing the "grades don't matter" line so hard at Harvard seems odd to me. As close as that is true at Harvard (that grades are arguably less important than at other places), it seems like just being relaxed about it would make more sense rather than constantly inundating 1L's with that line right before grades come out.

I've heard other schools giving out this "don't worry about grades" line, but at NU they basically said nothing which I really preferred.

I am more tense about this than anyone I know, but I don't agree with you. It's a big deal now, but it won't be in a few weeks.

They comforted people at my school by saying that only assholes get A's.

I thought I posted this earlier.

We've gotten like 4 lectures about how grades don't matter. Letter from Dean, lectures from profs, emails from past profs, and a lunch panel. Go to a T1

Exactly. We had the same thing - "grades don't matter," "don't worry about your rank too much," etc.

During an alumni panel a partner at a midsize firm laughed and assured us that they do.

It doesn't seem odd to me. Hundreds of people who have never received less than perfect grades are about to receive ... imperfection. Some will prob lose their shit.

Is that a joke?

Unless you have a 4.0+/180LSAT then you have experienced imperfection.

I mean I think message is okay. But harping on it over and over makes them seem disingenuous and is self-defeating to their goal, imo.

Clearly it was not meant to mean literal perfection. I mean you have an incoming 50th percentile GPA of 3.8 who are then forced onto a curve where the 50th percentile is a 3.3 (at a T14).

Unless these people have done well in an undergrad major that curves, and assuming they know what a curve does, they have figured out long before grades come out that there is a 50/50 chance they will end up above median while competing against intellectual peers and not a bunch of undergrad morons.

Knowing this, are you telling me some people will be SHOCKED at how they do in law school?

If so that's just arrogance, and if some arrogant people LOSE THEIR SHIT after they get their grades back, WHO THE FUCK GIVES A SHIT.

That's just how arrogant people respond to being told that they aren't special.
