Thirty Days

Today is the thirtieth day of the registrar imposed thirty day time limit professors have for posting grades, yet I am still missing two one of my three grades. The b*tch of it all is that the two missing grades are from the same absent-minded professor who takes his sweet ass time grading because he's too busy researching and traveling. Add to the mix that he's straight from an Ivy, and seems to think the rules are more of a suggestion than an actual policy, and you've got yourself the classic delayed grader.

You would think Professors would have more sympathy for their students, especially since they know first-hand that even the laziest law student has a fair amount of her self-worth tied up in grades. We care because employers care. And law students applying for fall internships, or like me, participating in early fall career fairs, need ample time to experience the five stages of grief - that second stage is particularly long - for whatever marks bestowed upon them by the grading gods.

I hear ya, LawSchoolMom. I actually got my Crim Pro grade about 50 days after the exam and the professor was named Best Prof at graduation.

Hope you did better than you hoped!
