Joeshmo's post is gold. Pure gold.

Every year around this time Cary Bennett becomes like a UVa law super villain. He reminds me of someone....maybe...Obadiah Stane from Iron Man!

FWIW, my section got a grade even though the eval for that class hasn't been posted yet.

Someone texted me about it yesterday. I wasn't checking SIS, so I don't know when it actually went up.

SIS says that grades get posted at 7am and 7pm. In my experience, if you check a few minutes after 7pm, that's when the majority of grades will have gone up, at least judging from the way things worked last year.

The email that was sent out yesterday perhaps indicated that evals wouldn't go up until after the grades got posted in SIS -- so maybe they are doing away with that whole thing? For last spring's grades at least, evals definitely were not always up before the grades went up.

edit: one section of Civ Pro (Heytens) and one section of Torts (Barzun) have their evals up. I suspect that those people got their grades last night, but if not, prepare for the thunderdome.

Swore I wouldn't check my grades 2L year. As soon as my first eval went up, I went straight to SIS. FML.

You'll still check it during the day, "just in case."

If you haven't figured it out by now, log in to SIS, click on "Grades" in the drop down box and go from there.

Hmm don't see that. Maybe it doesn't show up until we get the first grade.

This is what it looks like on SIS, at least for me.

If for whatever reason that isn't there, click on My Academics --> Course History. Grades will be next to the name of the class if available.

I share the sentiment. I was doing a pretty good job of not really thinking about it, but after seeing on here that there have been two grades posted, I checked my watch a few minutes ago to see how long it would be until 7. It probably would have been a good idea to stay away from this thread, although Sealocust's Cary Bennett meme did make it worth it.

I'm too afraid to check, afraid of what I might C if I look.

Last month, my desired firm mailed me an invitation to interview based on getting my grades in before the interview process started for the end of January. Just got the email saying that the firm just made its selections. No grades: No chance. Hoping to sooth my frustrations by assuring myself that my grades would not have mattered, ughh! Somehow venting doesn't help much.

UVA really should be ashamed of how long the school takes to give out grades. If you browse the grade threads a lot of schools have most if not all of their grades back. I honestly wonder if our 1L summer placement is hurt by the atrocious amount of time it takes for them to give out grades.
