I'm supposed to start today. We'll see. I'm afraid to see how shitty my old outlines are.

Rather than study, I played golf and ate tons of food. I didn't even go home last year; I stayed at school and did practice exams 15 hours a day. My saving grace is that all my classes have tons of 3Ls and I bothered to outline. Please let that be enough.

For straight A's you'd better be getting Hermes

A-'s count...and our curve un generous [up to top 33% can be A-]...do-able, but yeah, I need to get going.

That's what I assumed, but I hear Shapo is a tough grader. Dunno if that applies to his seminars, though.

Don't worry. There are still plenty of us sitting around who haven't prepared in the least and have exams in less than 2 weeks . . .

Does it count if you have no motivation as a result of futility? I have four exams in a row (one a day) starting monday (the 5th) and there is no way I can possibly be prepared.

The job search totally ruined this semester for me. Kind of bitter, IMO.

Nothing out of the ordinary: Spent most of semester trying to get a job instead of focusing on school. Luckily I'm not taking a lot of credits, but the effort I put into this semester compared to last two is not even close and my grades will probably suffer for it. Plus I transferred, so it's not like I have cushion with my GPA.
