Grades [Dec. 19th, 2000|11:22 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Evan posted his grades, so I guess I'll post mine too.

Course Course Title Credits Grade Grade
CSE 401 INT COMPILER CONSTR 3.0 3.8 11.40
CSE 444 INTRO DATABASE SYS 3.0 3.6 10.80
LING 200 INTRO LING THOUGHT 5.0 3.9 19.50
PHYS 122 ELMAG & OSCIL MOTN 4.0 3.0 12.00
PHYS 132 EXPTL PHYSICS 1.0 3.0 3.00

Graded Credits
Grade Points

Total Credits
16.0 56.70 3.54 16.0

Some analysis:

  • Compilers: I'm happy with this grade.
  • Databases: I'm pissed at this grade, because the class was so easy ... my TA and professor can die. My TA knocked points off for everything, just to be evil. Having real world knowledge of databases hurt my grade here, most definitely.
  • Lingustics: I got a 3.9!?!?!? HAHAHAHA ... I hardly ever went to class. What a fucking joke. I never opened the book, I never studied for tests. So that's what non-CS, non-engineering classes are like, huh? Damn -- next quarter is going to rock. :-)
  • Physics: this class kicked my ass. Grade reflects it... this is my lowest grade at UW. But, I'm totally happy with it --- I'm done with it.

Damn, you guys get your grades quick. I don't get mine until January 6th. Our scale is rather lame too. We go 4.0 (A), 3.7 (A-), 3.3 (B+), 3.0, .... Yours looks much more exact.

Im so glad that I'm done with college. But in the back of my mind I do think about going back and having all that hassle again...

I might do it again... Who knows...I had a great time in college..

That's the scale that we have too... I've never seen grades that allow for tenths of a grade point before! It seems pretty cool to me.

But at least we get our grades pretty quick, usually within a week of finals ending. ^_^

I don't know how your grading system works, but since you're happy with most of them: Well done!
