That sounds dangerous.

I am trying to find a job -- I had assumed I'd be with a temp agency, but now I'm going to turn in resumes for some of the on-campus stuff.  I honestly thought I'd be in the 40-something % and assumed a legal job was out of the question for the summer.

Oh, neat, I'm tied!  I thought you had an 8.5 too -- I guess I'm not great at the math.  It's insane how close all the GPAs are.

Weird, I thought our GPAs were identical, but I guess not -- I'm #30 and just made the 20% cutoff.  I was surprised as hell -- I thought I'd be barely in the top half.

Wait, are we trying to get a grade raised or get thrown out of school?


I agree with Jacy -- even if you think it IS a mistake, I'd phrase it in different terms so you don't come across as another whiny, entitled brat.  ;)

I have to disagree... I would go into the professor's office with a confession letter in hand.  Interrogate the hell out of the professor and feel free to bring a friend to play the role of "good cop" while you take out your aggression on a strategically placed dummy also in the room.

Well since we're sharing, I did better than I expected.  Contracts and Constitutional Law, B+.  Civil Procedure and Torts, B.  And of course the S in question.  

After all the hype and "don't jump out the window" (Dean Coats actually told us that yesterday in class), I was expecting that straight Cs would be cause for celebration.  Without a curve, I would have predicted As in Civ Pro and Contracts, and Cs in Torts and Constitutional, so I guess the lesson here is that you just don't know.  Or at least that I'm really bad at predicting my grades!

I am such a nosy person.  I want to know everyone's grades (and where all the Cs and Ds are, since I didn't get them), but I know it's rude to ask.

Verbal, I think you go to my school.  Did you really get a P?  Because I got an S and assumed it was equivalent to a P.

I took two practice tests.  Scored 165 and 168 on them.  Took the real thing and got 164.

Hey, I was/am a stay at home mom, too.  I got pregnant with my daughter soon after I got my Bachelor's degree (and my son a year after she was born), and had been at home for 5 years when I was applying to law schools. 

Honestly I don't think any of the schools cared.  My GPA was okay and my LSAT score was good, and I got into all of the places I expected to get into.  And I start law school in a couple of weeks.  :)
