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.


Yeah, I don't either half the time. I do hate my brain though--it works too slow for this law shit.

Got all my grades back. LARW: B-, Property: B-, Torts: B, Contracts: B+, Civ Pro: B+ for a solid 3.0. Nothing special but that will likely be top 30% of the class based on curve at my school. Could have done better but I at least am in position with a real strong second semester to be near the top.

Anyone think about the fact that median for the curve and median for class rank are two different numbers unless your school has tiered curves stipulating a certain percentage of each grade.

I found out today that our grades are not even due until 1/21. Another 3 weeks at the least.


I thought ours come out on the 23rd? Either way, SUCH A LONG WAIT!

Well, my grades will probably be up soon. One teacher likes to tell students if they booked the class before grades come out and apparently my boyfriend did. He studied maybe twelve hours in December for the exam 2-3 days before the test. Genius, that one. Very happy but also wish my brain worked like that. :lol:

They are due on 1/21, but some of them are always late. So I count an extra week in case they are.

Grading not anonymous at your school?

This is the case at many schools. Although exams are graded blindly, the professor can look and see how people did.

I'm curious how many final grades you will be getting? At my school only Crim and Torts I are final grades. Property, Contracts, and Legal Writing are all six hour courses with a final grade in the spring only. We will earn a seperate final grade for Torts II in the spring. However, since my first exam was a month ago tomorrow, I would love some feedback.

Interesting. We get separate grades for each semester of those courses.

Does anyone else have a professor that posts the model answers to the questions before the grades? It's just making me feel worse and worse about my answers. Ughhhhhh

I want some fucking grades already. The deadline for our professors to turn in grades is January 26. Why the fuck does it take so long to grade exams? If you're going to take so long about it, why don't you write a shorting fucking exam so that you can grade them faster.

/rant

Ummm... and there's that. Sorry.

First grade in! LRW: B+.

Right at median with this one, but considering it's only 2 credits (compared to 4 credits for the 3 other courses), I half-assedly did it a few days before due, I forgot the class existed due to focusing on my substantive classes, and felt like my memo had to be very literally the worst in the class, I guess I can't complain (Especially seeing how there's only about 1 A in the section).

I hope I can nail those A's in the other 3. I actually feel mildly more confident about the others now.

+1. One of my professors is three weeks over the deadline for a class of 20 students, and the others don't look like they will be submitting on time either.

Same boat. He sent us an outline of all the issues on the exam though. I went through them and felt a little better though it sucks since I don't actually have a copy of my answer since we did it on the Exam4 software.

i took a final on dec. 2 that was 20 multiple choice and one short essay (like 1-2 pages single spaced). still no grade for that class over a month later, so i'm not too hopeful about the finals i took much later that were a million pages longer.

Got two more grades, so now I have all grades other than LRW.

Basic takeaway: I am terrible at figuring out which classes I tested well in.
