Profs had over a month to submit grades and they couldn't do it?

They got F's anyway right. So they're gonna miss OCI, and have to attend/pay for 2 more years? Kicking them out would be a mercy.

Nah. Apparently the 4 F's were completely unrelated. I guess there were just 4 people that legitimately failed.

How could you really know that? I am highly skeptical that 4 people would all just fail the same class. Failing is quite rare. I think there was one F in all of the doctrinal classes put together in my 1L year.

Magarian needs to be voted Prof of the year next go around. Only one enforcing standards.

Also, Magarian is just generally awesome. Good dude, brilliant thinker, great teacher. Take a seminar with him if you get the chance.

If you guys really wanna know if they're LLMs or not, LLMs are included in the grade distrbution but not the mean. Someone bust out their calculator.

With those 4, the mean is a 3.49. If you take those 4 out, the mean is a 3.528. Almost certainly LLMs.

How available are bike racks at/near AB Hall? Going to be living 3-4 miles away and faced with the decision of biking or taking the MetroLink.

A couple blocks north of the Forest Park station.

There are bike racks at both entrances of the law school you should be fine. And I'd rely more on your bike too. I lived in CWE with no car and relied on metro and it's just very annoying (doesn't run as often, not as safe, etc.).

I plan on having a car, just don't want to shell out $550 a semester for a parking pass when I'm able to make a 12-minute bike ride or metro for free. As long as there's always available bike racks, I think I prefer that to using the MetroLink. Thanks!
