That is because you aren't watching the right cat videos.

You see the problem is, I missed almost the max allowable classes, didn't really take notes, and only did 4 of the 30 or so problem sets...


Should be terrified, but I'm strangely meh about it. The answers are going to be on the page right?


I'm in the same boat with evidence. Half multiple choice, exam based on class notes only, prof gave us a bunch of practice questions and his class notes. Open book. I have no idea what anything is. Relevancy? Say what? I couldn't name a single rule and what it means right now. I haven't even bought the casebook. I went to most classes, but was surfing the internet mostly. I'm taking it Friday morning, but I have an exam tomorrow afternoon that I have to prepare for. This will literally be a test to see if I can learn an entire semester's material in 12 hours. I'm buoyed by the fact that I did great on the in-class practice midterm without studying for even 5 minutes or paying attention in class. I just googled the FRE and looked up the rule individually for each question. But practice midterms are often a poor indicator of actual test performance. At least I know I probably won't fail -- that and there's a bunch of 3Ls in the class who really couldn't give a shit either.

I've been wondering this for almost 2 years now. I had my suspicions at one point, but that person denied that he was Oban.

At this time tomorrow I will be donesauce, and 48 hours from now I'll be almost home.

That's not really helping me concentrate on learning PR.

Lol. I rolled into my exam without the statutory supplement. I reached to look something up, couldn't find it, and just thought to myself "fuck." Might've still done alright. We'll see.

So instead of trying to learn what my prof wants on my last exam, I've instead been arguing with him in my outline. Normal.

Last year I was...

I'm still a 2L. I just meant that I did not obliterate a class that I might've been able to if I'd gunned it, but it isn't weighing heavily on me.

I worked this year, but it wasn't insane. 1L I probably put in 1.5-2 times as much work.

Wait you worked 50-67% the same as you did 1L year? That = super gunner.
