+1, I have gotten grades back for one exam in 2 weeks and a day (and I have to imagine for my 90 person section the average answer was around 3-4k) and another one in less than 2 weeks (4k word limit). Now, however, I await the long slog for my last grade. It was the last exam and the professor is notoriously slow...

Robertson? Yea I was surprised he turned em around that quickly. Best professor we've had all year.
Edit: assuming you go to UT.

I made a reference to this method to 0Ls who will be attending my school, when asked about grading, and they went off on a few page tangent stressing about grades. It was largely led by a poster who claims to have gone to my school and be making bank, while simultaneously going out of his way to denigrate my school as much as possible. Oh TLS.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Being out in the "real world" has made me forget 99% of all the bullshit of law school. I don't even really care about grades. Last semester I constantly checked the grade page. This semester I don't and I'm barely on TLS.

Grade wait continue. First exam was now 5 weeks ago. Last exam was 3 weeks and 5 days ago. Grading deadline is in two days. I guess I will get hit by three grades in under 48 hours as opposed to the week and a half trickle we saw last semester.

It's a write-up of our field work component, he said we had until grades were due to do it. It's not graded, just a requirement. It should take like 10 minutes to write, I'm just super lazy and not in the mood.

Pretty sure you can still transfer unless your first semester grades were awful.

First semester was A, A, B. For this semester, I have one grade left to go. But I'm coming from a T4 so I'm not sure it's enough for GULC or GW's part-time program. Tied to DC area & PT programs due to work.

hard to gauge coming from a t4, but those grade look good. one more A- or so and you should have a strong chance at getting in somewhere.

It appears that I will get all of my grades in a less than 48 hour period. I have no grades and the grading deadline is May 31.

Apparently 1 of the sections has all of their grades back. This just isn't cool. I want to whine some more.

My grade deadline is 5 weeks after the last day of final exams. My prof that gave an exam on the 3rd of May can wait until the 21st of June to turn in grades. Be happy with May 31st.

You could still get some of yours faster than I got some of mine. As the other sections illustrate, not all professors wait until the deadline. Just mine.

Just got my torts grade, and it is my lowest grade so far of my 1L year and I thought that final was the easiest. Funny how it works like that.

It always is dude. I remember torts last semester I felt like shit after because I spent too much time on the first two questions and only had 40 minutes for the last one. Turns out it was my highest grade while I felt great walking out of civ pro but it was my lowest.

Yea I hear ya. Last semester my section was the last to get grades. We got our last two grades two weeks after spring semester started. Definitely not a fun feeling.
