Just heard from a student I mentored Fall Semester at Loyola Law School. Lowest grade A- and highest grade A+* (in 2012 Loyola inflated their GPAs). Anyway, congrats to her! With that sort of grade in criminal law she will make a great criminal...

Now there's absolutely nothing wrong with cheering each other on and posting about your success in this thread, and y'all aren't being asshats - that's whatthis thread is for. But (a) brace yourselves generally for the fact that the top 10% of the class will from here on out do 90% of the posting/talking/mutual masturbating about grades and (b) be very carefully about assuming "everyone in this thread is killing it, wow everyone on TLS is killing it!"


Yeah, I posted here because I wanted to vent , staying tight lipped about it to classmates (generic, "I am happy with the grades" to people who ask). Starting over fresh this semester, going to act/prepare as if I was below median and have to catch up.

Thanks everybody. Especially the exam prep thread people, you guys helped a ton.


Just for fun, I decided to figure out who you were. Alas, turns out I don't know you. (Although I did figure out who you were).

TheZoid wrote:Nice job bro. Are you using the new grading system? I love how 88 and 89 are now A-, and 95+ is A+, gotta love grade inflation.

:lol: Yup, 98, 94, and 89 respectively. Gotta love being able to claim straight A's with an 89. Also helps for ranking that I was in a section with profs that gave out a wide ranges of grades. I know in some sections the top grade in multiple classes was a 94. That would suck to have done everything right and get fucked like that.

TheZoid wrote:Haha yea, for sure. I'm at A+, A- and waiting on torts. I'm at the lower end of the ranges tho, so not quite as high of a GPA as yours. It's hard to complain about it, but I got the second highest grade in con law for a 95. Thanks wash u for making that an A+ but it sucks to nearly Cali a class for a 95. Loved magarian, but damn brah bump up that distribution. Either way, great job and congrats on the success.


You too!

guy just posted in the class facebook page (not some random group created by students, but the official page which administration regularly posts on) "is there a way to figure out our class rank with our gpa, not for bragging just for those of us thinking of transferring?"

Or gone the other way and said he's looking for some early odds on whether he'll become Valedictorian.

Franklin, that's amazing! She was lucky to have you as a mentor. How did she get so lucky??? How many mentees do you take on? Are your methods easy to grasp? Are there any hot babes you mentor that you might be able to hook me up with? Thanks bro.
