Two Random Questions
« on: April 30, 2005, 11:38:53 PM »
1. It's on the tip of my tongue... what's the term they use for the top student in a class?

2. How do some people (midjeep with the barney-like spanking 'tar comes to mind) have animated GIFs for their avatar? I've tried both uploading and pointing to hosted images, but no matter what, it just takes the first frame of the GIF.

Nope. not the word I'm thinking of. There's a special term they use in law school. For some reason I think it was a latin word... if not, just latin sounding.

In law school the top ten are order of the coif, I don't know if their is a special word for #1.  This can also be top ten percent.

 If there is a word  for #1 in undergrad, I would like to know.

1. Am jured? Does this sound right to anyone? What exactly is it? highest grade in a course, in a section, or in the whole class?

2. I tried uploading the pic. Maybe the filesize is too big, so they compress it? Thanks.

I think its the top few in each course.  I don't think it is just the top 1.
