It goes from the law school to Regents with stops at Windermere and the Del Prado in between. It's so much faster than the university ones.


Oh sweet. On what kind of schedule?

Every half hour I think? I might be wrong on that.

every hour between those times, but sometimes on the half hour mark and sometimes on the hour mark.

Rising 3L here. neurotic question re: K&E scholar designation. wondering when they typically come out and what's the range. I have a 180.66 due to big grade improvements between 1 and 2L...not 2 confident but curious nonetheless.

Last year, a 180.75 was not top 5%, based on the stupid postings of another Chicago student who I assume thought s/he was anonymous.

Also, this question is really lame. I hope this doesn't translate to other personality features.

EDIT: I should add that, given the more generous curves available to 2Ls in the form of seminars, small classes, etc, it seems more likely that the 5% threshold has risen, not fallen. The latter is not impossible, though.

I need to come back here more often. I miss TLS.

Anyway, if people want to know anything else about rough grade cutoffs for things, I think I have a pretty close idea of how last year broke down.

It's not unreasonable for rising 2Ls to care about grade cut offs for things like law review or so they know where they stand as OCI starts next month. I'm less sympathetic to an angry 3L looking to see if his sweet Bus Orgs grade will help him get a gold star on his transcript which serves absolutely no purpose other than so his mother can brag to the neighbors.

Sorry you don't get to update your LinkedIn with a fancy new award. You must be crushed.

Lol.

K&E doesn't even get your parents excited, your firm (unless you actually work at K&E) will be like "what the hell is this?" And my year at least a 180.66 wouldn't have put you in the running. HTH.

Do the top 5% not graduate with highest honors (182+)? Asking if 180.66 will make the cut seems...senseless.

Of people who are at Chicago all 3 years (transfers often benefit from questionable grade conversion of their 1L grades), someone graduates with highest honors something like every other year. If you look at the honors on the back of the transcript, you'll see the break down of what percent of graduates get what level of honors.

High (not Highest) honors is 180.5. There is no fixed percentage that get high honors, but usually it will be around top 5-7%. Highest honors is a GPA of 182, but usually only 1 person manages to get that every year or two.

No. Transfers just have their graduation GPA calculated purely on 2L and 3L grades.

In that case, I was wrong. They benefit from the higher curves sometimes permitted in smaller, upper-level classes.
