Anyone at Harvard know what DS means? I thought the only grades were P and H, but all my grades say DS. Does it mean "delivery soon"?

Sorry, I kid, I kid.

I'm one of those lucky Section B people just waiting for LRW. Do any of you Vandy kids know what the median GPA is (I don't completely trust Wikipedia on this question). I'm sitting around a 3.52 but don't know exactly what that means for my future employment chances.

Based on my research on this forum, it seems the median is a tad lower than what is listed on Wikipedia. The median is much closer to 3.15 for 1L. So I am guessing you are, at least, in the top 30% of your class so far. Good job!

Just got an email from on of my professors entitled "Grades" where he said "Hey, your grades are all in... but the school hasn't released them and told me not to tell all of you... sorry"

Goddammit.

My school's grades are due Jan. 13. I heard from 2Ls that grades trickle in next week (after spring semester starts, of course).

more like top 20% i would estimate, maybe even top 15%, if the median is at 3.15. but that's just my guess going off a comparable median gpa at my school.

B+ in property, my last grade! Not as good as the others, but I'm still really happy since I totally messed up RAP and wrote something completely untrue for that section. Good luck everyone still waiting!

Grats! Property is by far the hardest to get an A in. My prop class was filled with 2L overachieving gunners, so I'm assuming they hogged all the As.

You have 2Ls in your property class?! That's weird isn't it? I thought it was a 1L class at every school?

Well, they are part time students. Still, they have a year of classes/test taking experience under their belt, plus they were all crazy smart. Pretty unfair IMO, but what can ya do. Might as well throw in the board of LR to even it out!

Does anyone know what median is at Fordham? I know Wikipedia says 3.17, but this is also throwing me off: http://law.fordham.edu/career-planning/1416.htm

Also, one of our professors decided to send out the break down of grades awarded and I calculated the average to be around a 3.2 for the class...

We don't technically know ours yet. The 3.17 is old, 3.19 is most recent. And the 3.2 from your class doesn't matter since the median is derived from all 1Ls. It'll be somewhere between 3.16-3.21.

Just use what's on the Fordham page for rank calculation purposes, it may fluctuate slightly once they calculate the new cut-offs.

When you refer to the Fordham page to calculate rank, do you mean the link above? The median there seems to be 3.35 :?

That link, but you're looking in the wrong column. Look at class of 2013/14. 2012 is for upperclassmen, most of their classes aren't curved so the median gpa gets inflated.
