Hmmm... if all of the sudden professors started giving low grades, I am guessing there must have been some talk from Dean/Administration about grade inflation.

I'm guessing like 5-6 people verbally assaulted Dmato and this is the result.

If so, that sucks, because grade inflation definitely has a positive impact on students' job prospects.

Probably Cliff's one contribution to the email. "Oh, Oh, Leslie, make sure to put that they can talk about their feelings if they want. Dr. Durr needs something to do."

In that case it would read: "seek counseling if mad about grades you are"

From NU? See quote few pages back: 4.00+ 3-5 people. Not from NU? Probably slightly more baller.

Even if 3+ have a 4.02+ at NU after 1L year I'm still going to acknowledge the baller-ness. Also, while I don't think that we're a generally weird bunch I do think that a couple of weird people are very fucking vocal about being weird.

Got it, thanks. Grade Inflation. Love it. Very jealous. Chicago T2 where 3.8 was top of class.

Chicago has to at least benefit marginally besides its rankings with those hiring just being too lazy to figure out what the triple digit number actually means and equates to GPA-wise
