If it's any consolation, reading your post makes me feel just a little bit better... :P

What's your plan between now at 8:15?


Whatever his plan is, it involves a lot of coffee.

i would gladly send you mine for you to reword if it wasn't an honor code violation.

but mine sux so you're probably better off with the honor code.

Coffee pot is going. Gonna be a long night. I think I'm pretty much done with the argument, so the rest should follow very quickly. Funny that this paper counts for about as much as one of the mini-issue spotters on my civ pro final. That makes it not feel so bad.

Hi guys. Thought I would drop in and see what was going on in here before I head off to bed. I was originally going to mercilessly torment you, but then I decided against it. If it makes y'all feel any better, I didn't sleep the night before any of my memos were due. In fact, I am pretty sure the earliest I ever finished was about 2 and a half hours before the deadline. As horrible as this class is, ACTUAL legal writing is no where near as bad.

Good luck. Guess I should get some sleep so I don't sleep in Patents tomorrow. It is a tiny class, and I am in the front row. I am pretty sure professor Rai would notice.

PS-I had Coleman for Torts as well. Yes she is merciless in the face of legal writing, but I am pretty sure she won't hold it against you long term if you screw up tomorrow. She is a reasonable human being too. Just make sure to come, and try your best not to sleep.

Pounding away at the facts section, got to throw in a few more citations, and then edit. Probably going to come in ~100 shy of the word limit.

From the Cambridge Guide to English Usage (found online, I may pull this sucker from the library and photocopy) on singular they and their:

It avoids gratuitous sexism and gives the statement broadest reference....They, them, their are now freely used in agreement with singular indefinite pronouns and determiners, those with universal implications such as any(one), every(one), no(one), as well as each and some(one), whose reference is often more individual....For those listening or reading, it has become unremarkable—an element of common usage.

Everyone go read this: http://www.law.duke.edu/news/story?id=6009&u=11

It's five of those get-to-know-your-profs questions. Everything goes along as you'd expect until things take a very sharp turn.

Hardest habit I've ever had to break. Was tempted to bring a PC.

Not even sure how you could figure out grade cutoffs when all we know is 3.3 is each class's median (but I admittedly had a very easy stats professor in undergrad). Graduating class's honor cutoffs are useless since the curve bumps up to 3.5. Just apply the gut feeling test: you know you did well if you smile when you see the numbers.

Just so y'all don't freak out when you inevitably wake up at 8 and start refreshing ACES like mad, there is a very good chance the grades wont actually be out tomorrow. Check once, but if they are not there just try and enjoy your weekend.
