At least for 1Ls, they'll all be coming out next Wednesday


Thanks! I wish they'd planned to release them before the start of the semester...

For upper level courses: Do grades generally release in the grace period (monday)? or by the deadline? (today?)

Any idea if you're grades have come in at a consistent time of the day? Or randomly? (though I guess at this point it doens't matter much, since all grades should be released on Monday anyway)

Is it weird for an upperclassman to only have one grade back at this point? :?

It would be weird if grades were posted according to the advertised deadlines. This is Georgetown after all.

Lol no, the registrar doesn’t work on the weekend

Some grades may not come in for another week. Last semester I got one grade two weeks after the end of the grace period.

I figured but was hopefully optimistic. Let the cell phone grade refreshing once per five seconds resume on Tuesday and continue for a few more days.

All these stories of getting grades over the weekend or people who already have all their grades simply build up our hopes only to be crushed every time we refresh the final grades tab and final see ...... nothing

There's no excuse for having hope relative to anything controlled by the GULC registrar. You have been duly warned.

the fact that there haven't been a dozen TLS threads asking "I did so-and-so on my exams at GULC am I fucked" provides some indication that maybe the registrar didn't meet the deadline though

They still don't have civ pro, legal justice seminar or torts up.

Is the general consensus on this that below median is fucked and above top-third is reasonably safe chance at biglaw assuming competent interviewing skills and targeting?

Better grades are better, but you'd have to do pretty terribly to be unsalvageable

Nah, below median isn't necessarily fucked; like Gray I also know people with 3.1x GPAs who landed a big law gig but you are of course facing an uphill battle with a GPA anywhere in the 3.0 to 3.2 range. You presumably are fucked if you have a sub 3.0 GPA at the end of the year.
