gpa so far for last semester is a 3.75. kind of sad i'm still waiting for LRW, which is surely going to be median. i will relish this moment before LRW forever.

I can't do anyyyy work at all either, and I have homework for 3 of my classes tomorrow. I have 4 classes tomorrow, from 8:30am-7pm. :| Being back really sucks.

Top third, but barely. Not sure where to go from here. Not shitty enough to drop out, not good enough to do anything meaningful lol

I love TLS for perspective. Got an A, proud beyond belief, come here and see it's no big thing. This is a smart effing board.

Getting an A is awesome, congrats! Not everyone here did well, I guess those of us who did are much more likely to talk about it than those who didn't. You should still feel really great and proud of yourself.

I made the mistake of assuming my TLS friends all did well and made some offhand comment. That is not the case. You just see far fewer people who didn't achieve post in an already self-selected group.

All grades are in:

Civ Pro: A
Crim: A
LRW: A
Contracts: B

Booked Crim and LRW, so I'm pretty ecstatic right now. GPA is a 3.73, curve is a 3.0, and top 10 cutoff last year was 3.58. Summer (paid) work, here I come!

If you want, I can let you know when my grades come out and your A will certainly seem incredible compared to them.

Meh. Stuck in a place that's too good to drop out, but not good enough to make me happy. I hate having ridiculous standards :(

Awesome, I get to apply to every summer job with one full letter grade - B- . The rest is some cockamamie xx/xx raw score/ranking.

Good news - I think it was my second to worst exam.

Bad News - it could possibly be my best exam lol

Well just got my Legal Practice grade back. I ended up with a 3.63 for the first semester. Median is a 2.8 or 2.7 I believe. I'm pretty happy but I'm hoping I can get a 3.75 or so next semester. Good luck to everyone still waiting on grades!

STILL waiting.

Every day my projected grades get lower. And they really didn't start off that high.

Maybe there is no correlation between being a neurotic gunner who posts in this thread and getting good grades, but it sure seems like there is. Here's to hoping!

Same. And our grades aren't due for another week.
