haha yeah seriously where are all those people?! either it is INCREDIBLY common for people to feel like shit after an exam, or they are just being respectful by not posting their good feelings after seeing the rest of us contemplate /selves.


I honestly walked out of K's thinking I may have CALI'd it. Then I walked out of Crim thinking "Dear God just give me a B."

I think it's more that lawl school exams aren't easy and they aren't supposed to be easy. Plus, there's the whole uncertainty with the curve.

Thinking definitely the former. Better to think negative thoughts and be surprised than think positive thoughts and be disappointed.

I have a feeling that's going to happen to me with Ks.

Given some discussions with a couple of friends, I'm pretty sure that the exam blindsided everyone.

Doesn't help that I've been trying to study for Torts today (I could barely even do it yesterday after that final), but the combination of my brain almost running on E and me seemingly getting ill does not help things.


I hope so man (girl?)... I felt awful after yesterday and I would be really surprised if I got over median. I felt about the exact opposite as I did after property.

I also feel ya on the studying thing. I have barely touched torts, mostly because it feels useless now that Ks has likely molested my GPA.

Hope you get to feeling better. We're almost done...


Don't feel bad a lot of people felt the same way about Ks in our section too. I went into that exam ready to dominate it, but the 1st question totally screwed me over.

(maybe LP will save my gpa at this point...)

3.5 hours and 5500 words later, I am done with my first exam. Pretty sure I got somewhere between a B- and an A, but not ruling out a C or an A+ (law school :( ).

I'm about to take a 5-hour energy. Not because I want to stay up late, but because if I don't I will likely fall asleep right now. Bleh.

I'm about to drink one with the hope that it will motivate me to study. I feel like going home or to the gym, but still have work to do before my last exam tomorrow at 1:30.

If my finals were all multiple choice and policy essays I might actually be getting decent grades.

Kinda wish I were you right now.

Also, Goosey, I feel you. I've done nothing today . . . granted I took an exam this morning. About to start now and try to go until 2ish, I guess.

You and I, we have brains that work in different ways. MC sounds bad enough, but I would get my ass handed to me on a bell-shaped curvy platter if I had to worry about more than one policy question across all of my classes (and even that is giving me the jitters).

I had an "oh shit!" moment today when I realized I'm not at all ready for this property exam :/

on a side note: it feels unreal to be making plans to hang out and chill with old buddies this weekend
