Quarter Grades

This little guy glows under phosphorescent lamps, but that makes it hard to photograph.

With the end of the quarter comes the season of grades. Once finals are over I am cursed and blessed with electronic grade reports. Blessed in that I can get my grades as they are finished, cursed in that I get my grades as they finished.

Until I get all of my grades in I check the online grades two to five times a day. The minute my first grade arrives I start checking more frequently in the odd hope that all professors finish at the same time. And as always the last grade always takes the longest to arrive.

The one problem that arrises is that cumulative GPA and Honors are not awarded until the university wide grading is finished. Of course once you are a senior you have enough units that a single quarter cannot dramatically swing your GPA. Unless there is a dramatic swing that ruins a particularly high GPA.

Now I need to wait to get my final exams back to see how close a friend Mr. Curve is.
