Does everyone at every school have access to practice exams? Are they specific to certain professors or are they just general for a subject and the same for everyone in the school? (sorry 0L here)


It varies by school and professor, but generally each professor will have one or two exams on reserve. If you're really lucky they'll have a model answer.

I have two relatively new professors, so there's none on file. I've been working with a friend to create our own tests using pieces from other professors' tests, exam books, and making up our own questions.[/quote]

This is a good idea. I hope i dont get any new professors with no PT's on reserve

it doesn't matter too much cuz you're all graded on a curve. if you're screwed, so is everyone else.

Still in classes, which blows, because the first exam (Torts) is on Tues. Thankfully, we don't have the next one until almost a week later. But since it's just under a week to Torts, and we still have to more days of the class. But it's balls-to-the-wall up to this point. Outline done, flash cards for the rules made, only PT is done, E&E is done, and now I've got the problems that the other teacher gave the other section to do.

It is however many hours it takes you to get everything into your head.

That being said, I work between 80-90hrs a week total right now, but my first final is in a week.

I don't think I've had less than 60hrs since September with legal writing


I would just kill myself if I worked that much. You're talking 12 hour days, seven days a week.



Yeah-but that is just right now, since I have a final Tuesday. 60hrs a week isn't that bad. I used to be on call for my work 24/hrs a day--this is actually sort of better.

6 or 7 hours for me. I'd sleep more if I didn't spend five hours a day watching internet TV and finding humor in the fact that, unlike many people on this forum, I'll escape from LS without becoming a sociopath.

I'll let y'all know how that works out for me...
