I can't believe it - I just got an assignment back, and I got a 100%!! That has not happened since high school - or maybe some small quiz in college. Ok ok, the mean was fairly high and the distribution pretty tight, but whatever. That still rocks. The only downside? My high school math teacher would reward perfect exams with this bizarre scrawl that he said was a dog. Mine just had the point total. I guess you don't get dogs at Fuqua. :(

Aww, you two are real smartypants.

Anyway, I was hoping this was going to be a post about how the former cheerleaders and the former fratboys/jocks were going to be the most popular people at Fuqua and Chicago! You know...just like high school.

I'm sure the two of you fell into those categories back in the day. :-)

The curves can be tight. Last semester I had a 34/35 in the accounting mid-term and that turned out to be outside the top 10%...It's scary how prepared people are.

So can I share that my group got a 100% on our A3 in Ops. Mgmt. last week? We thought it was no big deal, that everyone probably did well, until the professor said that she graded them pretty harshly. Congrats to Aau and Rhyme! :-D

i think it depends on the class. some professors - most at fuqua - set up tests to provide a pretty wide dispersion. others give you stuff they expect you to be able to do. accting exams are brutal, but ops was much more doable.

forced curve here too, though i find it somewhat ridiculously forgiving:

Superior Pass: Top 25% of class
High Pass: Next 40%
Pass, Low Pass, Fail: all the rest.
