How is prewriting an answer any different than having an outline with you that uses complete sentences? And no its not against our honor code--one of our professors actually told people to do this during office hours. I can't even begin to fathom why any school would call this an "honor violation"

And christmas mouse, how do you know who my professors are :-o but to answer your question, I would state the rule and then if there's alternate takes on it say "however in a jdx tha follows the xyz rule.." I looked at the con law exams online and I am so confused as to how class reading and discussion will turn into THAT.

And it sucks that Ks is closed book because it would hav been awesome to have prewritten answers for an exam like that

Which specific provision of your school's honor code do you think this violates?

No. My professors allow anything written into the exam.

You guys at least are not copying and pasting into your exam taking software, right? I know for sure THAT is an honor code violation here. And a number of professors have specified no prewritten answers. Might not be a school wide policy, but at least some professors disallow it.

Its not even possible to copy paste into the exam software--exam software locks down your computer.
