I've seen elsewhere 1L median at 3.2; coif (graduating 10%) at 3.75.

Thanks. That's roughly what I had in mind.



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_l ... GPA_curves

A great resource, thanks. Though UCLA's cited pdf is from 2008, so I'm not sure about that one.


Yeah. The current is not exactly informative: https://law.ucla.edu/~/media/Assets/Cur ... dards.ashx

Plus, while the wiki page is a good source, IME, median GPA is always > target/allowed median class score by .1 or more. Whether that's because of professors trying to push the curve as much as the registrar will let them, because of the actual distribution of grades among students, or some other reason, I don't know.

You're good, straight Ps = $180 Gs!

Also, your grade turnaround was amazing! June 3 finished and June 8 grades?! I finished on May 13 and was told today grades might take another 7-10 days!

Remember that exam we finished in April? Funny how there are no grades for that yet.

I had a two quarter class that finished up at the end of April. Only those grades are in. I think the rest of the grades won't be in until mid July.

Thank you for the support! I hope your grades come back and exceed your wildest dreams.

What is everyone's plan with regards to mass-mailing? Anyone mailing now? I'm planning on waiting to hear from Journals/Moot Court but I'm just not sure.

No mass mailing for me. Banking on OCI.

Have sent out a few for a part-time job during the year.

We have a lot of summer receptions so I plan to go to 3-4 of those and also follow up with the people I met at the school year firm receptions. So not quite "mass" mailing, but definitely nosing around for an early callback or two.

Finished at the same time and still have a week to go. Can't stress those already hard-working professors too much.

"My calendar is filling up fast, so I suggest you make an appointment sooner rather than later in order to make sure you are able to get in to see me. To make an appointment, please click here. Hopefully grades will come out in the next week-10 days, but don’t wait until then to schedule!"
This was in an e-mail I received yesterday from OCS. I'm hoping that this is indicative of how one hand doesn't know what the other is doing, but it is likely a sign they don't care about us having grades in time to mass mail.

Deadline for profs to turn our grades in was a week ago so at this point it *should* be just the registrar who is not doing their job

I'm at GULC, and I know someone who emailed the registrar a few days ago. He was told grades might be ready today, but the registrar's office is apparently not open today, so...probably not until next week. Though elective grades came out last Saturday so who knows.

Our Journal comes out the week before OCI bidding ends, so like 2 weeks from now. better to mass mail w/o or wait? also if mass w/o, should you mark journal pending or anything?

Finally got my last grade today (and managed to keep near the top somehow).

I'll tack onto the confused comments about mailing out. I kind of feel like I should wait until journal comes out (not actually sure when that is at Penn), but at the same time that is a long delay and there are not a plethora of spots at some of the areas I am targeting. Do you think waiting for journal is less (because academic aspect is covered) or more (since more likely to be LR) important with an ~4?

I think my grades were to be posted today, but I just do not have the energy/motivation to dig up my credentials to look for them...

I am a part-time student, who works full-time, we have had some issues over the last few weeks that have gotten the executives worked up, and due to the traditional work rules (i.e. shit rolls downhill), me and my team have been putting in a lot of long days. Sadly this mess started a little over a week before finals started, which made finals more of a pain than I had hopped for, and has prevented me from catching up on my rest as I had hoped.
