Same here; we are in the same class--Section C. Let me try to read for Crim Law instead of wasting my time here

I missed a civpro discussion? Probably the one class where I truly enjoyed the subject matter last semester.


For real, though, I'm missing an exam where the word limit was 1000. Does it seriously take this long to grade? You gave us the rubric ahead of time, and it's ridiculously simple.

It's officially been a full week since receiving my first grade and still haven't gotten any other grades back. Longest week of my life.

Was 2.5 between my first and second, and I still don't have my last.

I'm hoping to finish the cycle with an A.


I got an A in civpro.

I'm a little too happy so I thought I'd share on TLS to bring me down.

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


+1. Our grades are due by the end of the month . . .

I dislike this waiting.

HAVEN'T GOTTEN A SINGLE GRADE. While I'm terrified to get them back, I still WANT them back.

Other sections are getting their CivPro grades, we had the exams on the same day, one month ago tomorrow. I'm so tired of this wait. I feel oddly confident about CivPro thanks to Rich Freer, but I'm not holding my breath.... (Probably medianpwned)

Torts just posted. I got an A. Still waiting on Civ Pro which is a wild card. I have no idea what to expect in there.

Median (B-) in Property. It feels worse because our CivPro professor had our grades in before Xmas and I got an A in there. Now I know how people felt when the Titanic was sinking. And I'm at a TT. I'm going to end up being the person who sits on TLS until my mid-30s and trolls the 0Ls. I took a scholarship to a lower ranked local school, so if anyone starts a thread about that being a good idea I'm going to be on that shit for sure.

I wish I could have chosen my school based on how they do exams :| . Closed book/note exams are garbage, wish I would have known studying for them throughout the semester was completely different then what I was doing. I know people say open book/note exams are just outline dumps but is that any better than a memorization contest on standard issue spotter exams ?

I'd argue for closed book/note exams because if you understand the material memorizing would be easier and you should get a better grade.
