This is well past subtlebragging and into "mild misdirection prior to blatant bragging."

B+ = 3.33, A- = 3.67, and Stone is about 3.41

B+ means you were somewhere between 25-65% in your class.

Interesting, thanks. For some reason I was under the impression that an A- was a 3.5.

Where would all B+s place you (after first semester) at CLS? I know it'd be above median, but 65th percentile? 60th percentile?

I don't think anyone knows exactly, as they have loosened the curve to some extent, but most people I've talked to place a B+ average (3.33) right around median.

Since I'm a 1L I have absolutely no idea for sure, but yeah that's the vibe I've gotten from others.

I asked in the Ask a Law Student forum, and apparently they usually come out before the deadline. I'm sure it depends on the prof, though. I remember reading somewhere on the school website/ITT that it can take up to a couple weeks after the grading deadline for the grades to be posted, which would be Feb. That would suck.

Yeah the website is super unhelpful. It says grades generally come out withing two weeks of the deadline which would be anywhere from January 11th till February 8th. I fully expect Krier to get his grades in mid February.

I think it would be worse if we got our grades in some type of piecemeal fashion like this. Don't know if I'd flip a shit more if I got one great grade and two unknowns or started off medianpwned and got higher. Plus without all three of the major ones we still can't do much regarding jerbs. Hoping all of them just come through at once whenever they do.

Yeah, I see what you mean, although I'd like to at least see the ones I feel like I did shitty on. Oh wait...

I just want to get them back so I can panic about something substantial.

I think this is right.

Also, still no grades, just test numbers :(

Hmm, at least median at CLS seems to be in solid shape.

:( At least the arrival of test numbers seems to indicate you'll get it sooner rather than later (but then again that's just basing it off of one piece of data).
