Two back already? Damn. I haven't even taken my first final yet.

.. granted it's my only final, and it's literally the last final scheduled at my school.

Why does this thread exist? There are people who still care about grades?

I was thinking the same thing but didnt have the heart to crap on kalvano's thread. Of course if I get no-offer pwnd, then Ill probably look back and wished I cared, but thats at least 2 or 3 months away. For now, Ill continue not give two shits.

I still care. Mainly because I need to since I don't have a firm offer yet.

I'm thinking about not even logging in to check unless my firm asks me for an updated transcript.

Based on my intuition:

Corporate tax: C
Partnership tax: D+
Antitrust: C-
Evidence: F+

I would feel kind of special if I earned an F plus. It's like, I would be the best at failing.

I think I would be ok with that.

You'll both check. Most likely semi-obsessively in a couple of weeks. For me, 2L year the 1L need to actually and do work went away, but not the need to check grades.

What's the experience you guys have had with getting all multiple choice finals back? I have a feeling it's not going to be any bit faster.

Already!? I haven't even taken my first final yet!

I dread waiting for grades....and checking them for that matter. I had to have my mom check my grades over summer break because I thought I was going to have a heart attack. I'm so sad. And, I still very much care. Even moreso that I have an offer in hand. I hope they don't want an updated transcript.

Last semester, my all multiple choice BA final was the first grade back, but it still took a month. lulz

My Evidence exam was 50% M/C, 50% short answer. Grade back within about a week.

Yet, but it does. So I am here.

This waiting period is a lot like T-time after you eat Taco Bell. T-time is that magical time between when you eat Taco Bell and your body realizes you ate Taco Bell. I'm waiting for that indigestion.

Just took Evidence final this morning. The professor is notorious for a really quick turn-around in grades, so here's hoping its a good grade. The exam actually wasn't too bad, despite how utterly terrified I was of it....that's not to say I didn't miss anything, but I don't feel like I did awful. We all know exams are pretty unpredictable though. Here's to waiting......

Since 1st semester was all B+ and A- (hopefully no worse than median), this exam period was like living in drama-o-rama-land. LR way out of reach but not out of reach of the bottom percentage. We had one 24-hour online exam, most every question had a dozen parts, so I am not expecting the prof to zip through with results anytime soon.

LoL got my first grade back yesterday- turnaround time about a week.

Missed half the class, barely studied, had no idea wtf I was doing- A. There's no way in hell I deserved that grade. I guess my paper was heavier and went farther downt he stairs because of that?
