3 more left...one is pass/fail...so I guess only 2 real grades left. fam law *felt* like an A, and t&e felt like a B+ [since i screwed up at the end] so heres to hoping I dont do any worse than what I am guessing

Read zero cases.

GPA dropped .06.

Class rank remained the same.

Motivation for next semester even lower.

If I ever go Tyler Durden on the world, I'm blowing up shit related to Scantrons first thing.

+1. Seriously, I didn't think I could hate multiple choice so much.

Also, found out I passed my Tax class!! (I took it pass/fail). I know it takes a lot to actually FAIL an exam, but I am so freaking relieved. Come on Commercial Law, show me some love and luck! :?

thanks everyone!

and I used law in a flash...I have gotten an A- in every class I used law in a flash for thus far [3 so far] and I am totally sold. I think the reason I havent gotten an A is probably some type of lacking in my test-taking abilities. But I seriously slacked so badly last semester and the only thing I was really on top of was making sure I did the flashcards--its helps A LOT

This is now my second full day of classes and I still don't have my grades from 1L Fall Semester yet, we don't get them until Friday. This is so incredibly aggravating, as I don't know if my course of action related to studying during fall semester was effective, so I don't know how to continue with the homework I have been given this week. So far, I've just continued what I did, as I felt I was ready for last semester's exams, but I really can't stand this waiting game BS anymore. Come on Friday!!!

our deadline is friday but grades are posted in a rolling basis as they come in...I only got one so far. One is entered into the system but not visible to me because we cant see them until the registrar confirms them---my guess is that the curve is off and the registrar is adjusting it, but this is a pass/fail class for me so I really just want to make sure I passed----but not nearly as interested in seeing the "grade" as I am in the last two classes, which have not even been entered into the system yet :evil:

Checking in now, but we won't get grades for a few weeks still. Got a job though, so this shit doesn't matter anyway. Taking Accounting for Lawyers and Fed Tax and I'm terrible with numbers - should be a fun semester.

Don't worry, if your professor is like most professors you won't see a single number except the code and regulation titles.

Thanks, it's been a long and scary saga. In house at an upcoming pharma/biotech compliance firm. Their work is split 50% doing in house work, and then a bunch of their clients forward their billable legal work so I get to do that too. High chance it'll turn into a job offer at graduation too. Not a traditional path, but I'm excited about it.
