this makes me really happy I was told grades come out around the end of January. No fucking around panicking.


The END of January?

One of my professors, when asked, said he was supposed to hand in all grades no later than the end of January, but good luck with that (i.e. he's gonna be late)

Fuck yeah bro. Extremely happy for you.

But I am going nuts with not a single grade released yet.

Congrats! Also I think you are in my section since I got those same grades back yesterday.

Thanks man (?). Haha yep, sounds like we are in the same section- totally agree still a lot to be determined, which is why I'm still not too comfortable. Hope everything's gone well for you so far.

Thanks Unam. Just a couple more short weeks at the latest, bro. Also, whoever said they are waiting to release grades til after they have you pulled in for a second semester was dead right. Term bill due January 3rd, grades released on the 4th. BE MOAR OBVIOUS.

if grades come out on jan. 8th (spring 2013 payment due 7th), I'm a believer of this conspiracy

Yea, I'm kind of pissed we get ours so much later than everyone else. My confidence has both skyrocketed and dropped repeatedly over the past few weeks lol. To be honest though, I just want them back to be sure I'm not wasting time applying to positions with certain GPA requirements. I also want an excuse to be at Ricks unnecessarily early.

Btw unam, weren't you a summer? Can't remember who is who anymore online.

Nice. I'm hearing we may not see our grades until the first week of February - _ -. I've loved being here all year, and I think this would probably be the only complaint if that's true. A week or two after our peers is cool, but almost a month is kind of absurd. I'm also gonna buy into the conspiracy if it comes out the first week of February as I think one of those days is the day past refund time (I've got to check though, I doubt Z would do that).

Edit: Well that and it's fucking freezing here all the time, but I'm starting not to even mind. I visited people in Jersey and was outside in a light sweater while everyone else was bundled up; felt like I was in the Bahamas.

So at my wife's request I checked my grades today, and, lo and behold, a grade was posted:

Legal Research and Writing: -

(it's a year long class)

If grades come out after next semester's payment is due, do you guys have any idea what would happen for contingent scholarships?

Since my scholarship covers tuition, I wasn't required to do anything when last semester's payment came around. My scholarship is only good, however, if I maintain top third. So in the event grades come out after the payment date, I will have been good to go without paying (since grades were not in yet). If I then fall outside the top third, would I just have to pay at a later date than everyone else?

Are you sure that the GPA requirement isn't for the whole first year? Just checked and my scholly is guaranteed for 1L, but assessed every subsequent semester.

Holy shit, thank you for having me check. Mine too is guaranteed through the first year and then evaluated for the second and third years. That is a huge weight off my shoulders waiting for these grades.

The more important concern is that you're attending the kind of TTT that has a top 1/3 stip for scholarships.
I'm sure you'll be fine, though

I go to the same school as shredderrrr. I just want these grades back already so I can breathe easy about the top third stip :cry: I heard that our grades aren't due until the 21st so we'll get the majority of them back after then. This is a stressful wait to say the least.

Today is the day.

At least, today is the day our dean asked profs to get our grades back by. I'm fairly pessimistic.
