Lots of P's at HYS

Postby pppppleasant » Thu Jan 17, 2013 12:43 pm

1L at HYS. Got a whole heap of P's first semester. I studied hard and knew the material alright, but I guess I didn't apply it well enough on exams. People who did well at HYS- what should I do to get a couple high grades this semester?. Help a poor fool out!

I wouldn't worry either. Focus on the upcoming semester and learn from your mistakes. Wallowing in worry or regret won't help. Send out some emails to professors to review your exams and see where you can improve.

It was a joke. Y was still taking exams when he posted this + it's not possible to get a first semester P. It's funny when people make HYS threads and try to hide their school because you can always easily figure it out, is all.

Well, if OP had just waited until we got our grades, we wouldn't be able to tell.

Yale doesn't take exams until January?... Granted they're pass/fail so it's not a big deal, but still that kind of sucks.

H had the same schedule until a few years ago.

Yeah, I know, but we changed it because it was inhumane.

It's the same 2L and 3L. I can already tell it'll be the worst when they actually matter. And no one seems to understand why they won't change it.

That's brutal. I can't even imagine going home for the holidays and having to worry about finals.
