Grades

6 weeks after taking a scantron/essay exam I still don't have my grades. I do, however, have grades for my seminar and a full essay exam. Makes no sense to me. I compulsively check the grade site every hour or so while I'm at work. I wonder how much productivity firms lose because of their interns checking grades. I'm guessing at least 10%. Anyone have estimates?

Shut up. You told me to post this...why do you think the post clearly lacks effort?

5%. One time an hour, 3 minutes each time (log in, swearing, etc.) and 3 minutes is half of a billable increment.
That's lost time.

Last grade came today. Now I'll be obsessively checking for my rank.

I'll check your grades every hour for you during your work day for $20 a day. Once you get them and don't like them, I'll "convince" your prof to reconsider for another $50. good deal, no?

That'd be an amazing deal if you're "convincing" is effective.
