Are other 1Ls still waiting on grades?
« on: January 12, 2010, 02:10:17 PM »
Is everyone still waiting on grades from last semester or are my professors just lazy a-holes?  It seems ridiculous that they haven't posted them more than a month after finals.  When does everyone else get their Fall grades?

We don't get grades until January 25 which I find to be wholly ridiculous.

I'm not a 1L, but yeah, it pretty much always takes this long.  Haven't gotten any of mine from last semester yet either.

I agree; it is absurd. It's been a MONTH since my first final, and nothing. I understand that it takes hours and hours to read a two page essay, but STILL. C'mon guys, it's been three weeks since finals ended.  >:(

For what it is worth, I JUST got my all of my grades back.  My first exam was 12/10 and my last exam was 12/18.  I didn't get my writing course grade until last week, which is especially frustrating because we turned in our final memo on 11/23 and took a short (and annoying) final exam on 11/23.  It took that prof close to 2 months to get us our grades.
It is asinine that law schools take so long to get the grades to the students, especially since my finals were all scantron based with, on two exams, 2 essay questions each.....
As best as I can figure, there is no accountability at the school for deadlines.  Granted, a monster essay exam takes longer to grade, but then maybe the prof's shouldn't give monster essay exams....
I'd like to shove my foot up the school's collective ass about it, but I'd like to actually graduate. ::)

You misunderstand. It's not that professors aren't done grading, it's that the school doesn't release them until January 25. In theory, all our grades could be in to the registrar by now.

similar situation here.

ignorance is bliss.


Except they release grades on the first day of spring semester. Couldn't they release them on the Friday before so, if necessary, I can spend the weekend getting drunk and being depressed before going back to school?

Ahhh 1L's hahaha.  CHILL.  It is what it is.  I'm not disagreeing that law school sucks (in every regard possible, including the time it takes to get grades), but it's not going to change so quit whining and deal with it   :-*.

According to my school, all grades are posted THE SAME DAY they are received from the professors.  Maybe your school is different.  Maybe not.  In my case, it IS in fact the prof's fault.
