I received my Econ midterm back last night and was very surprised. I got an A-minus. Now, this is an A- on a curve, not an actual 90-93%. In undergrad the curve and the grades weren't as forgiving, even in the graduate classes. I suppose it's good that I hold myself to higher expectations than the scale set forth in this class, but at the same time, it's disappointing to see my gaps in understanding highlighted in such stark relief. If only I had time to process what I'm learning more deeply. Ah well, someday.
