Me too! I thought that was my best shot at an A, so I'm glad I got it. Still _really_ want my LRW grade.

Congrats!! I don't have my LWR either, I know the best I can get though is an A- and the worst.. well I'm not sure. I got a B+ on my first memo, I'll be happy with getting that in the class.

Does your school give out A+? How did you feel about your tests in relation to the grades you got?

A- in Torts, B+ in Research (1 credit).... But I fucking got a B in contracts.... and I didn't get an offer after my interview with a federal judge today.... shitty law school day.... I just ate a carton of ice cream. Fuck.

I really hope I can recover with an A in Crim, which I though was my best class, but I am realizing more and more everyday that law school grades are a fucking crapshoot.

I think they do give out A+s, but it's up to the prof to decide whether to give them out or not.. so I have no idea now if anyone got one or not. I felt pretty good about civ pro after taking it - the essays were totally open ended questions like "list all the possible motions you can make and discuss your strategy" or something, so I had no idea if I hit all of the right things, but I wrote a ton of stuff and felt good about hitting the important topics. I felt good about the MCs for that too. A lot of the questions I felt like I maybe 70% got right, with a 30% chance I was wrong, with one I thought there was a 50/50 chance I had it right. I didn't want to think about it at all afterward though because I still had torts left, so I didn't check to see if I got it right. I don't even actually remember what I put anymore, so I can't check it now. I thought I did pretty well on torts, except I know I messed one part up. I read accidentally "Please do not discuss defenses" when it really said "please do discuss defenses" for both essay question. It said underneath it "please do not discuss damages" and in a hurry I thought it said not both times. With 10-15 minutes left I reread it and realized I got it wrong, I had to write out a defenses analysis super quickly for all parts of the two questions. So I felt super shitty about that part, but I guess in the end it was a pretty small aspect of the exam. Also in torts we had a group project and an individual project during the semester that accounted for 30% of our grade. I got 25/30 on them together, the median was I think a 22.. so that also helped.

I'm really jealous of everyone getting grades back. There hasn't been so much as a whisper about ours yet. The suspense is awful.

Congrats to everyone getting their grades back. I think we've still got 2 - 3 weeks left before we get ours, but it's nice to see some TLSers are stomping the curve as per usual.

B+ in torts which comes out to a 3.5. The median is a 2.8 so i'll take it. I was hoping for an A though. Here's to more grades (hopefully?) tomorrow!

So, statistically, it is unlikely that all of us will be above median so I'm not excited about mine.

Starting to feel like shit, wishing I did more over the semester or at least made my own outlines now that I'm starting to see the results for certain other TLSers...

LIFE IS SO HARD YOU GUYS!

I never have any idea what you're talking about.

Ugh I'm bored out of my mind. Trying to stay up late just so I sleep in and don't have to go through grade-refresh madness all day tomorrow.
