Anyone else pissed that we have to start the fall semester three days earlier? I already have plans for that day. And important shit, not just a Cubs game or something (that would be important too, but you know what I mean.)

This day of Civic Service moving class up to Friday thing is actually pretty obnoxious for people scheduling callbacks (you should schedule them then anyways but the administration should at least try to make it more reasonable to not have this happen).

GRADES WATCH - DAY 3

If they can't get their shit together to release today, do they wait till Friday to pretend like they'd planned it all along?

Has the registrar ever released on a day that wasn't a Friday? I thought the point was to release and then ignore any attempts to contact, meaning the weekend provides the best cover.

If I recall correctly they were released on a non Friday a few years ago. I searched this thread.

I'd assumed Friday release was like the Friday firing -- give people a couple days to cool off and not shoot up the building.

And in my X semesters of NU grade releases, they've all been on the Friday after grades were due, which would have been last Friday. I'm 99% sure grades were supposed to be released on Friday but something went off-track (e.g., profs turned in late, papers went missing, technical issues). The question is whether they'll release when the issue is resolved or wait till Friday.

Based on comments earlier in the thread, it seems like they were aiming for Monday, which suggests a willingness to release on a non-Friday. But then grades didn't come Monday. So now it could be any day this week, with today and Friday being the most likely candidates IMO.

There are ongoing negotiations about one students grades and a gift that the student's family is giving to the school. It could take several more days.

Yeah there's no way it would take N~P~SoL several days to bend over and grab its ankles for $$$

How helpful is it career-wise to graduate cum laude? Trying to know if I should take the classes that sound most interesting, or just get easy A's. (Probably a lot of overlap anyways).
