I am sure you did fine - simply suffering from self doubt like the rest of use here.

Side note: WHY IN THE HELL IS JUDGMENT NOT SPELLED JUDGEMENT. IT SERIOUSLY MAKES NO SENSE.

Thank you, I actually have to think about it EVERY SINGLE TIME I type it out.

Anyway, that's be sweet if we ended up at the same school. We are applying to many of the same ones.

Apper- you are in EASILY at UVA, considering your in-state status. I mean, if you finish anywhere near where you are now you can back your bags without waiting for an acceptance.

Wow. Thats nuts. Absolutely sucks that UVA's rules on in-state applicants are equally as unreal. Chances of me playing softball there are not great.

Yeah, I actually think I might just take UVA off of my list and add another reach or something. Maybe I'll take UVA off and add USC or something, although they are tough as well. Maybe I'll add NYU or Columbia, although I hate their transfer requirements (getting a dean's cert from your UG and crap like that).

Good luck!

Just a friendly PSA: It's impossible to walk out of a law school exam and think you've done well. I felt awful - or at least extremely nervous - even about exams I wound up doing quite well in. Try not to let that compound the stress, team TLS.

In other news: same time, same place tomorrow night? lol.

ITT: disco_barred prepares clever joke about how the constitution doesn't have a preamble, has a burst of uncharacteristic humbleness, checks, discovers that it does, but still privately thinks Apper123 was thinking of the declaration of independence since that preamble is more famouser

Are you also responsible for various state laws? That would be horrifying... It's daunting enough WITH notes to have to do a series of medium sized hypos which all end with "how would MPC treat this? California? New York? New Hampshire? Illinois? Missouri? what about this faux-model code the professor just wrote up? if it were up to you, how would you design the law?"

It's not that bad. I didn't do the reading and never went to class but I think I've memorized most of the elements of the major crimes.
