I have not only lived in both neighborhoods myself for several years, but also know literally dozens of people who live in both, and none of us have ever been robbed or even seen a loaded gun in those areas.

You should talk to Lieut. Kaffe about spreadsheets...

You never go full Igleye.

On a more serious note, Samara seems to have done similar to me. I basically focussed on class size, low GPA, median GPA, and city.

The earliest they would possibly be posted is tomorrow night, but judging from last year it will be sometime next week.

Now CHILL THE FUCK OUT.

I'm always neurotic, I just don't need daily reminders that my GPA is about to tank.

Protip: don't break up with your serious significant other during finals.

If it weren't for TLS/my friends, I would not give one shit about when grades came out. Thanks to everyone asking me so much about it, though, now I feel nervous. Damnit, y'all.

I bet there's a decent chance she went off last year's timeline when the grades came out on the 6th i think. We got out a week later this year so going by the regular timeline, they shouldn't drop by next week. But hey, maybe NU is competent enough to releases grades within a month instead of 5 weeks...

If I recall correctly, grades were "late" last spring because one of the key registrar officials was on m/paternity leave. If Kadens says they're going to be out Thurs./Fri., they will.

I don't want grades to come out ever, because I have little hope of them being much of an improvement over fall. :?

I'm actually more "eager" (for lack of a better word) to hear about journals. wheeeee.
