The Wall of Shame: Our GPAs Are Waiting

Written by

cmon prezbo, put on the hat
cmon prezbo, put on the hat

Imagine your teacher wearing this, it will make you feel better

We’re not sure about you, but Bwog woke up this morning thinking 2013 would be different. We had high hopes that everything we wanted would come with this new year and all our wishes would be fulfilled. And then we checked SSOL, and grades were still missing. 2013 has come, and nothing has changed.

In the spirit of looking to the past, we’re bringing back an old tradition and calling out teachers who have yet to post grades, nearly two weeks after the last day of exams (when grades are allegedly due). Perhaps with this call we can enact change and get our grades, so we can send out updated resumes for summer jobs stop caring about 2012 already.

Leave yours in the comments and we’ll update the post as grades come in.

    Professors were informed this fall that "The deadline for submitting grades is Wednesday, January 2, 2013" unless their home department set an earlier deadlines (and most do not).
    So talk to us again on 3 January Bwog.

      I was gonna post this. I wonder which classmate of mine wrote this. SEAS 2013, Comp Sci?

      I'm almost positive that I bombed the final, but did well on everything else. Fortunately, the final is only 20% in that class. A bit antsy about seeing this grade... hurry up Feiner/ Semih / Cyril!!!!

      but damn, how was this class even graded? Looks like the elusive final project grade mustve killed me

    what's the average for a calc 2 class?

  38. CC '13  

    Nathan shouldn't be on here. He sent out final grades by email. I got my 25-page paper back with a long list of comments and a final grade within one day of submitting it. Pretty impressive, no? I suspect he was listed here because someone couldn't be bothered to calculate their own GPA.

    Also, Shapiro probably won't submit grades for another few days. My year, we didn't find out until Jan. 6th.

  39. Funny story about Econometrics

    My final grade was posted on courseworks over a week ago, mysteriously disappeared a day later and I have not heard anything since then. This is more than fishy.

    Ricardo Reis, Intermediate Macro. This class is the only one I took a real exam for and it cannot have been as bad to grade as 100 10-page papers, especially with 3 TAs. It's also the only class I am WORRYING ABOUT, come on!


    The only professor of mine who I will make no complaint towards is Basalo (thermo) seeing as she kept coming to class to lecture until the day before her due date... I'll wait for that grade.
    To the rest (especially that take-home we turned in during reading week)- no excuse.

    but actually what I don't understand is that my physics lab TA submitted our final grades to the physics department on the 5th of december. It's been a month, and the registrar still hasn't posted them to SSOL. Seriously? wtf?

    Seriously we had a final the LAST DAY OF CLASSES that required almost no actual grading. If it was right it was right and if it was wrong it was wrong. The rest of our grade besides class participation was already calculated. What is taking him so long?

    I really don't think that Bollinger and Delbanco should be on the wall of shame, but their TAs should be. They don't do any of the grading really (Delbanco grades his discussion section's finals and papers), but seriously, the hold up is always the TAs. Especially with Bollinger, the TAs didn't do a whole lot of anything. And it consistently took 3 weeks for my Foundations TA to grade an essay.

    I've seen a bunch of people call out Mamdani/his TA's, they deserve it. Our final paper was due before classes were even done, and I heard enough from both him and our TA's about how there would be NO EXTENSIONS BWAAA

    "Dear all,

    A heads-up. Professor Mamdani has asked that we collate your final grades for this course by Wednesday the 12th. This means that you must have your papers in by Monday without exception. If the paper is not in there is no way I can grade them by Wednesday. So again, there will be absolutely NO extensions on this paper. No paper by Monday, F for the course.

    Good luck!


    I didn't need one, but come on, ya'll. This is pathetic.

    This is bologna. I missed a chance to apply for a summer fellowship because of Mamdani. So much for the grade being finished compiling on the 12th of December.
