If you want to be complete, I also turned down my 2L SA firm for a differnent firm via 3L OCI. Lawl school is lawl.

The one thing I will say - and I truly think this is a key to a lot of things for me - I never miss class. I have missed a total of 5 law school classes so far in my entire time in law school. All I do is play spider sollitaire the entire time, but I never miss class.

As a counter-point, I've done as well as TTON and I missed at least 25% of my classes........

It's all about what works for you.

SBL, I literally LOL'd when I read that. If I had any exams left, I would be tempted to do that. (I mean, I wouldn't ACTUALLY, but I'd be tempted. :))

In my corporations final I accidentally wrote "articles of confederation" instead of "articles of incorporation" three times. It's kind of funny in retrospect, but I just hope it doesn't banish me to below median on principle...

Same sick, miserable feeling of failure that I had at the end of last semester. May the 4 weeks of waiting end so I can either /killself when I lose my summer offer or rejoice that I maintained my rank.

Yeah, NU seems to offer a lot of 2 hour classes (hardly any 4 hour classes). I need to take 17 hours each semester as I am trying to complete a dual agree. However, I found this semester that the 2 hour classes tend to be just as much work as any 3 hour classes.

Really? Maybe it's just the way that it's presented by my professor, but my perception of Evidence as a subject is like the equivalent of a dumbed-down Civ Pro.
