Enjoying the Holidays When Anticipating Grades

Post by tlsadmin3 » Tue Dec 15, 2020 6:15 pm

The holiday break of 1L can be one of the hardest times in a person's law school experience. Anticipating grades that may trickle out slowly over the course of the holidays can make enjoying the time you have off impossible, especially if you need to maintain a certain GPA to retain a scholarship or admission.

Some set a certain date that they will log in to view their grades that is after the holidays. Others check each day, knowing that they would be more at peace if they knew how they performed. Have you experienced anxiety in your 1L winter break? How did you navigate those feelings--or how do you wish you would have handled it?

Our law school handled this really well. For 1Ls, they have a specific date in January that they release grades on. They do not release them on a rolling basis.
