What armor will you wear when you check your grades?

Postby thesteelers » Mon Jan 02, 2012 3:32 am

I'm planning on downing at least 2 bottles of wine before I find the courage to log in. The question is, will alcohol make me weep more bitterly/loudly/heart-achingly, besides making my fingers too uncoordinated to type, with the added risk of retching on my keyboard...or will alcohol be comforting steel armor?

What are your strategies?

Hopefully it serves me better than it served him.

We don't have a set date for grades to be released, just gotta keep checking. So either I go in unprepared, or down a bottle every hour as I check. Will probably be like the dude in my avatar.

I laughed out loud. Yeah, that's going to be me exactly too.

I know many others who did the same. The reason is simple: if you do well, you will not be able to resist the urge to show it; if you do poorly, the same will be true. This makes for much awkwardness when around other 1Ls, as inevitably one or more of them will have had an outcome opposite yours.

This is very, very good advice.

More specifically, but still covered above: do not check your grades on a phone in a bar full of classmates doing the same thing.

I remember I hosted a pregame second semester 1L, tons of people there, and people were lining up to use my computer to check the last grade that had posted that night. Awkward.

I have plenty of time to plan my suit of armor, because my school doesn't release any grades until Jan 30. Jerks.

Yeah, there's no way I'm going to be able to poker face in the first 30 seconds of checking my grades. Probably not even the first few hours. Definitely will want to be at home when I do it.
