I feel you man. This is when a school's grading policy can really give you the shaft. Makes you feel as if a professor isn't even reading your exam.

Where do you go to school Dingbat? Feel free to PM that if you don't feel like sharing that publicly.

Ah man. Well, hopefully the good ones can outshine the not-so-good one.. or they at least give you an opportunity to explain.

What section still doesn't have any grades? Figured they'd all have at least one by now.

Since most have grades back, can people contribute to the correlation between typing speed and grades debate?

I typed really fast, and I got really good grades. If you are just as good at analysis as me, and know the rules just as well as me, but I type twice as fast - how can you possibly compete in applying law to fact? (Unless, of course, I just run out of stuff to type.)

A prof once blogged about the statistical analysis and found that abnormally short exams (like bottom 10% shortest?) got disproportionately poor grades, but that there was no positive correlation between long exams and grade.

Apparently many people ramble. Obviously you'd rather type quickly than slowly, but it's very much over-hyped on TLS.

Pretty much every four hour model I've read was between 5500 and 6500 words, which I can generally hit with my 65 wpm, so I tend to agree.

this is bad news. all i know how to do is ramble. i normally speak about what i ate for breakfast, and the knicks and eventually some law comes in. i'm hoping the professors don't actually read them, which seems probable.

Haha Harrison's grade will definitely be submitted last. I know who you are, I am guessing you know who I am?

Pretty much every four hour model I've read was between 5500 and 6500 words, which I can generally hit with my 65 wpm, so I tend to agree.

I saw multiple model answers for my classes at around 1800-2200 words.

It's all about what the individual professor wants. Some of mine wanted word vomit, but some wanted a streamlined and cogent analysis.
