One of the things I hate about law school, but which seems to be universal among said schools: Still no grades. Whereas all my college-attending friends received their final grades before Christmas, no grades whatever have been posted for the law school. Law school profs have until mid-January to complete their grading.

Which, in some cases, I can understand, since a class of 55 law school essay exams can be a daunting thing to grade. But this semester two of my classes had multiple-choice finals, and one had only 16 students. You'd think that those grades, at least, would be available!

I don't think schools can release some grades before others. They can't post them until they have them all in.

Nope - when they start posting them, it will be in dribs and drabs. Even MORE irritating!

Eww.... Thank you for reminding me of yet another reason why I'm never ever going to law school.

I think law schools make you wait because they can.

But then I don't give them much credit.

Lawyers = the devil
Law school= evil right?

so then, your attempting to become Evil in your studies.

And every good villian knows that they must practice patience as their victims wallow in their own filth and stupidity.

Thus:

late grades = fiendishly evil plot to treach you patience. Bitter patience. (because I think you might have the good form of it already.) They teach you to stew and boil and think of fiendishly evil things.

Thus the circle continues.

So which contry are you taking over first?

THANK YOU! You reminded me to check my grades.

San Antonio College is either really cheap or really stupid (or really inconsiderate or a combination thereof) because they only run the server that posts grades at certain times of day. And so I kept trying to check my grades outside of hours and the grades weren't up.

Three A's and two B's! Not a single C, not even in the class I was doing poorly in!

By the way, did you get my Gmail?

My grades aren't available until mid Jan either. And mine totally sucks, because my icky, nasty professor called me at 7 in the morning the other day to tell me that he can't find my final. No matter how we try, the Disabled Students program and I cannot get it through is thick, discriminatory head that I take my tests with the DSP, and therefore they have my test (also, that is where he needs to drop off my test, so that I don't have to come back to take it when they don't have it...cause he dropped it off in the wrong place TWICE)

Oh, and the paper that I worked on all semester (or, half a semester, because he withdrew his approval of my topic in October) is sitting outside of his office, on a closed campus, waiting for me to pick it up.

Sorry. Thanks. I needed that.

Hey, I just got an e-mail from one of the Deans telling me that I forgot to include page 9 of my take-home. So, El Professor Magnifico has just started.

Two L's and Three L's get 'em all at once, with the One L's getting them faster. They just passed the word that Two & Three L grades will be posted end of January - Beginning of February.

You have my sympathies.

So I'm in my second year working on my PhD in medicinal chemistry. For what its worth they still haven't posted the grades for one of my courses--Physical Organic Chemistry.

I'm the *ONLY BLOODY STUDENT IN THE CLASS*. Just me.
