Just had my Crim. final on 12/10, and I felt pretty good. It was 3.5 hours, relatively painless. 30% of our grade was on an hour of 23 multiple choice questions (which can be a good or bad thing depending on how hard someone studies...multiple choice went pretty well for me excluding about 4-5 I was only 70% sure of) The other 70% came from 3 fact patterns: the first fact pattern was 50% and had 3 questions (ranging from a full analysis of murder and involuntary manslaughter, to accomplice liability). The last two fact patterns were 10% a piece and only had one question (strict liability, mistake of fact, statutory interpretation and causation).
We just needed to focus on common law (no MPC except for culpability levels). I think I only wrote about 1800-2000 words, which doesn't feel like a lot compared to what other people have said on this thread at other schools, but I swear I touched on all the issues and we only had about 2 hours to write for 3 fact patterns. No major curve balls that I could see, so I have no idea what will set the curve.
My only worry is that I wrote coherently. I spell checked quickly and was unable to look over any of my answers (I was writing up until time was called).
Torts final on Friday 12/17, which is going to be a bitch (4 hours and last year, many of the students wrote enough to cover 57 pages!!!!) and I'm done. I intend to drink enough to forget my name Friday night.
