Same here. We have a deadline of one month after the last exam, so I guess I have at least two more weeks to wait.

Same boat and I am getting antsy. I'm transferring and want to send out my other apps, but I need my grades first to gauge if they're worth the app fee... It's driving me batty.

I will totally take you up on this. We can make it $50.

If you really want me to take you up on this, I can PM you the address of my summer place. Such a good Samaritan, me.

Don't do it. He'll immediately spend your money on cheap bourbon and dip.

Hush, you.

Grades are in. I'm completely irrational and have no gauge for how I do exam-wise. GPA was the exact same: 3.81/4.0. A's in Civ Pro and Property, A- con law (my nemesis), and B+ in app ad (writing improvement.) Last semester I thought it was awful as well. My lesson? I have no idea what's happening, need to relax, and should under no circumstances discuss my feelings on tests with anyone until its said and done. And then, I'm still not crazy discussing grade stuff with classmates.

Heard this is where the party's at. Surprised there aren't more UChi students in here flaunting their grades like last fall, making the wait for the rest of us all the more excruciating.

Anyone got any tips to ease the wait? I figure it's 3 weeks until I see any grades, minimum.

Last semester they posted all of our grades at once. The slow trickle this semester is killinggggggg me, especially since I basically need A's in the two classes I'm waiting on, one of which is Tax, to keep my GPA from dropping. Lulz. Also, write-on is due tomorrow.
WAH WAHHHHH. *Opens beer*

Breh who cares, no one understands their grading.

Also enjoy alcohol.

Complete BS. Ended up getting my first grade today and it ends up being below median in a class I thought I actually did well in. Optimism is all gone, and so is the motivation to do the write on.

The grade I'm most worried should be coming out soon. Terrified. Hoping for anything above a C at this point and hoping it won't negate the good grade I got in con law too badly.

I really thought we'd get more grades today. I'm cautiously optimistic after doing well in Property and I just need to not bomb the rest of my classes and I'll call this a win.

I still don't get how people just get all good grades. Seems like I just don't get MC tests.

You two were too moronic to take my advice and wait for all of them to come out at once, I see.

Profs can give points for stuff on essays if written properly that would be a fail on a scantron. Those heartless souless machines!!!! :evil:

You should check your scantron. Mis-bubbling or mechanical errors is usually the only grades that can be changed in law school.
