Out of sync is a good word to describe what I felt too (shocker). I feel like I was stating/applying the law pretty well but wasn't sure if I was spotting the things the professor was testing and felt like I wasn't organizing my discussions in order. Who knows though. Startin to feel better and realizing I need to move on to con law.
What up brotha?
I kept trying to force myself to not be conclusory but I felt like I wasn't 100% committed to the analysis or something and that I was throwing out a lot of fluff instead of substance. I didn't feel like I was going step by step and was instead hurrying through each liability paragraph.
The word limit was at least 50% of this. I couldn't figure out whether to focus on a thorough analysis of less issues or to do less analysis and spot more issues......I guess I went w/ the issue spotter approach. Word limits for Crim Law = sucky. Word limits for Torts = a nightmare. Yet, I have both.
