I felt good after exams ended too. This week I have had the worst and most foreboding feeling in the world. Feel like I did awfully. Almost don’t want them to come anymore.


Same. Kill me. Also It's so hard to bring myself to work over the break.

Our grades release today and the wait is killing me; we don't know the exact time they'll drop. I was gonna head up to SF for the day to get my mind off of it but now it's pouring rain and I'm losing enthusiasm for going out lol.

Got my first grade this morning. Kind of wishing all the grades came out together at this point because man, not knowing my gpa is gonna stay where it is or go up or down is worse than not having any grades!

No grade on Torts yet but the prof released a sample answer for each of the two questions and MINE was one of them. Still possible I fucked up the other question but damn, I'm pretty pleased. The other sample answer was the girl I studied with. What are the odds of that?

Just found out that the other sections have most of their grades. This isn't making the wait any easier...

This + doing interviews without knowing whether my grades will make the cut.

Two hypos, equally weighed. Second hypo had three questions, one with multiple parts/questions. I didn't finish the last part of that question and I am still having effing nightmares.

As my friend who graduated (From my T2) at the top of his class told me - "I have gotten A- on tests I KNOW I fucked up badly."

I'm losing it at this point. My body keeps waking me up at 5 am in anxiety. I was doing so well until the first grade released. I did well in the class but I can't handle the wait for the other two.

Got my grades back. They were objectively really good, but just short of being jaw-droppingly awesome/automatic HYS transfer contender-level good. I hate that I'm disappointed in myself, even still.

Oh honey...


Just wait til you get a form rejection letter with typos. That one really pissed me off.

Law school sometimes feels like nothing more than a string of rejections. Prepare for more, and keep fighting for someone to say yes! :)


Haha. Thanks. I was told to expect about 50+ rejections. This one was just a bit premature.

Bleh last grade came out today. Objectively I did fine, but I feel like I should have done so much better... I had my outlines done early enough to devote 3 days of practice tests and review to each class, which seemed significant compared to a lot of my classmates... time to do some correcting.

Did get a good summer [non-SA] offer today though so that made me feel better.

Everyone learns differently. If you try to peg performance just to observed work volume and timing, you'll miscalculate not just because your observations could be off, but because different strategies work for other people.

Congrats on your job!

The only reason I am not in total panic mode is that I'm really confident in one class and have my LRW grade. Other than that, having had two callbacks that seemed to go very well, I am just WANTING MY DANG GRADES. lol.

This is pretty much my situation.

I did well in LRW and am convinced (isn't everybody?) that I got at least an A- in Torts. I'll update in a week or so when I actually get my grades!
