LRW has been up for me, went up Friday midday, but still no LRW grade posted. Also, Property eval still not up. Why are most Property sections not posted yet??

Law student + business card = epic, unmitigated, inexcusable fail. (Sorry Dante, if you're out there)


Mixed reviews on ATL.

Course evals have nothing to do with SIS, all grades are posted on SIS. Technically they wind up posted on your symplicity account too, but it takes a few days.

Three evals now up for me (plus LRW).

Still 1 here. Raging hard because it's definitely a Student Records backlog in at least one case and I suspect in several.

Mixed reviews on ATL.


Whoever said it was a good idea on ATL falls into one of two categories:

1) Wrong
2) Trolling

It's pretty common to be trolled, actually. People will pretend it's a good idea and laugh when people buy into it.

It's not a good idea.


Brief thoughts on this: In UG, I had adorable business cards made. (Well, they were more like social calling cards, but it's the same basic idea.) They were colorful, well designed, and people liked them, but I think this is because I didn't hand them out. In my industry, it was not uncommon for people to ask me for my card, and if they did so, I had one to give them. I don't have cards now, because I can't think of a situation in which someone might hear that I am a law student and ask me for a business card.

I am unlikely to judge someone for carrying them, but I do think it's not necessary. Part of me is a little bit sad that I can't have pale pink cards with my name stamped on them, but sacrifices are necessary at times.

I won't. My Property eval STILL hasn't posted, who knows when I'll get that grade.

I haven't gotten LRW either, and I'm biting my nails over it. :P

Okay, grades clearly do not only update at night because between noon and now my LRW grade went up.

Wait, what is an S? What is the YR? I thought that LRW is just P/F?
