What did you get in Torts?


Trick question, we haven't gotten a torts grade yet! Not like you'd understand our grades anyway :P

What's the appropriate response? Egregious GULC trolling? I would try to to stick up for myself, but I know I wouldn't understand your response.


we don't understand our grades either, tbh

I got a 4.5 and I literally never read a single assignment. I purchased the casebooks, but only in order to burn them symbolically. I also didn't outline. ymmv

For both of my exams I just wrote "assumpsit" like 6 or 7 times with a period after each word. Both of my profs are Dadaists though, so I mean obvs 186x2.

You cannot ask me to embrace a practice exercised by a group with whom I am not in privity. Lorem ipsum, I am not bound to embrace any actions taken by you.

Is it because the joke cuts both ways while putting a thumb on the scale as you face a line drawing problem?
