Nope. They post them all at once apparently.

Feels kind of like this, but with a bucket full of shit:

Has anyone else had serious concerns for their psychological health when/if their grades come back bad? I am glad it's not just me...

Still no grades. Have had multiple interviews who are now waiting for grades, slowly forgetting how great the interview itself was. Not happy with this, I have friends at others with all their grades and offers from firms I am pending at... waiting for grades. This is not fun.

I'm here with you man. Are you all definitely getting them next week? We're just hoping to, no guarantee at all.

Aggravating that offers might go out and that ship might sale because of no grades.
We are supposedly getting ours by Wednesday at the latest though and probably Monday so here's hoping.

Ugh, still have like 11 days left until my school releases our grades. And I just finished my first week of class of spring semester.

There no way grades would be released on the weekend (or after 5 during the week for that matter), right? Don't want to waste one of my last weekends before school starts back up checking for grades.

I don't want to out my school, but my grades also are not due until the last week of January. Only 2/4 classes have been reported so far. I'm super jealous of everyone who has their grades already.

Oh boy. Going to be a fun time in the Green Lounge. I plan on having a flask full of whiskey in my locker as emergency medicine if things go badly.

Now that I'm a law student, I fully understand that alcohol is in fact the best solution to any life problem.

It's never fun waiting to be waiting, but you can probably chill out.
I didn't have first semester grades until basically February and still got a 1L SA. As did dozens of other students at my school. Anecdotes aside, remember that law firms (and hiring committees) are made up of alumni of many different schools and that they go through this process every year. They know how and when grades are released. Probably a lot better than 1Ls. If they make a decision that cuts against you, it would be folly to think its because someone else got their grades 2 weeks before you.
