Yes! High fives! I feel quite chill. Bustin my ass off, but without the stress. This feels exciting -- and it will be over in less than two weeks.
who know how I'll do, but right now I feel really chill. I think all the gunnin' has inspired me with a ::false?:: sense of confidence that I'm gunna dominate this shit.
I'm of the mindset that I've done my best throughout the semester, and whatever happens for finals, happens. I've never felt out of my league with my classmates and I remind myself that the last time that my classmates and me sat down and took the same test was the LSAT and that turned out okay. I would be much more worried if I looked back on the semester and felt like I significantly slacked. At least my level of work prior to now has given me some peace of mind.
My wise, old property professor (who rocked law school to the level of people offering to pay money to join his study group) told us in class that law school exams test how well you can take law school exams. If you do well, you have more doors open for you, but that doesn't mean you're smart enough to deal with things once you step through, it just means that you did well on law school exams, which open doors for you - and that's pretty much it. He ended the little talk by telling us that law school grades are predestined anyway, so don't bother worrying about it. I really do love that man.
