The dood actually told a firm he was in it for the rigor.lofl

And yet that dude probably interviewed for admission at NU and was passable. That backs up my belief that the admission interview means nothing other than you are willing to make the time to interview and thus are slightly more likely to matriculate.


Rays wife getting in after showing up reeking of vomit proves this. Best first date story ever.


To be fair, she also has DD's.

2. Has anyone called? Im starting to get the feeling that this grade withholding is meant to make it more difficult for borderline transfer students waiting to see their spring grades.

O yeah they mad.

Really? Wow. That's really, really messed up. Do you know if top students were contacted proactively by the administration, or only those that threatened to transfer?


From my understanding, it was people that were accepted as transfers at higher ranked schools that went to the school and asked for a scholarship. I don't think they just randomly threw money at top students.

Since I'm such a whiny bitch about it, I do want to give a shout-out (is that still what we say?) to the law librarians. I don't care if they are good at other universities. Ours are fantastic in my experience. They make my life so much easier, and they all do it with a smile and kindness.

I heard a rumor (from a good source) that grades are coming out today.

Did this source offer an approximate time? Having received grades from NU on 7 occasions before (including summer and intersession), the earliest that I can remember grades coming out was approximately 3pm.

Plot twist: grades are never coming out, 1L's will have to do OCI with what they have in hand.

Frankly, I would prefer rolling into OCI with just my first-semester GPA.

*edit because I just repeated VVV*

I have it from a good source that Ex-Dean Van Zandt returned to campus in full mascot regalia and stole all the exams, replacing them with buy 1 year of AJD and get the second one free coupons. And then Zim stole those and replaced them with certificates for free chair massages.

Also I demand you out your source. Because clearly I am in position to make demands. If you don't, I will pelt you with whiny posts, and you don't want none of that, just ask rayiner.

Sorry dooder. TBH, my grades weren't that good, really, but things definitely went less well the second semester.

I'm just dicking with you. I'm sure you weren't bragging.

I'm sure RemnantOfIsreal was though.

Looks like they are starting with the 1L core classes (because it's not alphabetical). I seems like I kept hitting refresh last semester for nearly an hour waiting for some advanced tax course grades to pop-up. Then again, LLMs are not real people anyways.
