I had battered chicken wings, fries, and beer for lunch. This was not a productive afternoon.


I did that a week ago and I was toast for the rest of the afternoon/early evening.

Ugh. I have no words. Braindead, but way to wired to sleep. And taking a ridiculous exam for a class that I am B- secure for tomorrow.

I don't really have to study for professional responsibility, right?

I've been trying to read a 3 paragraph long summary of predatory pricing for close to an hour and a half now.

(1) price is below costs; and
(2) reasonable chance of recoupment (or is it is "dangerous probability?" is that just for monopolization attempt?)

if there is any more to it than that, im fucked.

It's reasonable chance if bringing an action under Robinson Patman and dangerous probability if Sherman Act. Cite Brown & Williamson for that. Not sure why you'd bring one and not the other (more bites at the apple) so I would just discuss both. Slackers helping slackers.

I'm just hoping that my below median grades aren't 2 grades below median. I'll take a B, just not a B-.

lol, wtf is the robinson patman act...

just ctrl+f'ed "robinson" in an old outline for my prof's class from 2 years ago, and in 88 pages it came up once. welp, looks like im satisfied with my understanding of the robinson patman act... dangerous probability sounds like a much cooler standard anyway. thanks for the clarification, tho!

btw...

the fact this was posted at nearly 4 am makes me think there is a little too much motivation here. please verify when you began studying that night. if it was any time before 1am, we are going to need to tone that shit down a bit.

Assuming a class...

1. is 3 credits; and not a really high volume 3 credit class
2. has an open book exam
3. has an old outline of decent quality

I'm convinced that you can learn any class to at least a B/B+ level understanding in two 10 hour study sessions, or 20 hours total of studying in some other fashion. I'd put that number down to 15 for a typical 2 credit class, add 6 hours if it's closed book, and/or multiply by 4/3 if it's a 4 credit hour class.

Divide everything by 2 if you have had more than 5,000 of your posts deleted.

Also, that whole formula comes with the presumption that you have absolutely no clue what has been going on in your class the entire semester and are learning from scratch. i.e. evidence for me, starting a week from tomorrow.

Definitely. And yes assuming no prior knowledge.

40 question multiple choice Corps exam. 4 hours, open-book.

So hard to study.

That's how both my Tax and Evidence exams are supposed to be. Tax is basically a "you get it or you don't class" (prof says there are usually a lot of high grades but also a lot of low grades), but I'm guessing Evidence is just going to be hard since the professor says the curve breaks out pretty neatly and no one gets everything right.

The exam I'm struggling studying for is Family Law. Six hour take-home, open book, 50% BLL/50% policy. I may actually just skip making an outline in that class, but I'm not sure yet.

The prof told us that "the exam will be very easy, no trick questions, you'll know what's going to be on it." Which means that I'll be falling right into the middle of the curve.

Just created a "Grade Possibility" excel spreadsheet with the following categories: Kill Self, Pretty Bad, Okay, and Decent. Even worst scenario leaves me with only a .2 cumulative drop from when I got offer at OCI. Making this made me much less stressed about life.
