So what's the usual process of TA'ing? Do we email the professor if we got a good grade or wait for the professor to contact us?

I was assuming the Profs contact us in a few months when they start getting ready for Fall 2018 classes.

Seems like this was pretty well answered 3 posts above, but usually you wait for the professor to reach out. Some do it right after they post grades, some wait until later in the semester/summer. If you got an A or an A+ and you'd be interested TA'ing, it doesn't necessarily hurt to reach out and ask, but my understanding is that generally if they want you they'll come to you.

Has anybody ever had success in negotiating up from a Butler to a Hamilton? (If stats are relevant - 177/3.92)

I don't think you can negotiate up for these.
