I thought I couldn't tell anyone, but I have some close friends that I have shared grades with and its chill, there's no awkwardness at all. Maybe it'll get bad during 2L OCI who knows. I think as long as you're not a dick about it you can talk to your friends. If your friends are the type to get jealous or dislike you for doing better than them, maybe they shouldn't be your friends.

There have been some condescending, cocky gunners that I've wanted to shut down, but it's whatever just let them do them. Hopefully they get no-offered since they're assholes.

went to print off transcripts before an interview this afternoon, and of course the school's printer jams after the first copy is printed. i'm not sure how our printers always manage to jam, but they do. hope someone was nice and threw them away once the printer started working again

They entered the grades in wrong for a class (a sorting error from my understanding). When they finally realized, anyone who was erroneously given a lower grade than they had earned got their earned grade, while those who were erroneously given a higher grader got to keep the higher grade.

I'm not from there, so I don't know the section, but I can only assume it was this one.

I heard it from a friend who was annoyed by it (but not in that section). Someone from G-town should substantiate, but I don't see any reason for her to have lied to me.

It was discussed on TLS at the time. I didn't recall the school. But apparently the prof gave the registrar the order of performance on the exam or something like that, and the registrar put everyone in their place on the curve... backwards. i.e. the lowest scoring student was given an A/A+ and the highest performing student was given a C or whatever. Grades issued. The mistake was found. Grades were increased where necessary, but grades were not lowered. So as I understand it, both the best and worst exam got the same grade, and no one got less than a B+.

Lol they gave an F exam an A+. GTUTLTC confirmed. Can't believe law schools are just like "lol sucks" when it comes to 1l grading fuckups, especially ones this egregious. It's not like someone who was supposed to get an A got an A-.

You know curves rationally make sense in the abstract but on the level of personal knowledge of my classmates I don't understand who could've done worse than me
