Grades En Route 

NESL has announced that they are mailing out grades today. Well, perhaps "announced" is too emphatic a verb. They quietly placed a small posting on the student-faculty discussion board. Mind you, there's a prominent spot on the school's main web page for posting important announcements, but apparently this one didn't rate that kind of spotlight.

Receiving grades nearly two months after exams is really anticlimactic. By this point we're all deeply involved in this semester's classes, and have neither the time nor the energy to futz about anything that happened last semester. I e-mailed a few friends to let them know of the mailing, and only one managed to muster up any sort of reaction: "Uhm...goody?"

Then again, I'm wondering what the line will be like at the Registrar's office come Friday, which is the day you can go get a copy direct from the source if they haven't yet arrived via USPS. I have a feeling that all the claims of "Oh, whatever. I'm really don't care at this point," will be tossed out the window.
