Also, I think I might go to the UVa library and make all of the 2L's leave at like 8 p.m. Some sort of studying curfew needs to be put in. For 3L's, 6 p.m.

Who is awake and studying that early?



I know I don't belong here but two things: 1) You're my hero. 2) I love when you post.

+1. Became pretty depressed after striking out/going through job search hell all semester with nothing close to a positive result, ended up teaching myself most of my classes, now the motivation is mainly trying not to fail..


This is me.


Right there with the two of you.


Yes, totally getting worked by the double whammy. Literally went to like half my classes during oci season until about mid october. Then got depressed and went to like 15 classes total after that. I have a tax final tomorrow, 4 hours. The only reason I have a chance of not failing is that it's open book - no restrictions. I will be the guy who reads the question, then goes to the index in chirelstein and then write whatever he says. I don't even have the tax code. Fuck. Need to find a job before I 'have' to update my resume with this semester's grades. Might as well throw in the towel if I don't.

Not to mention, I still have to take a closed book admin law test with a professor that wrote the textbook and the nutshell. I don't think I'd have a chance if it was open book.

Have my first final tomorrow. Instead of studying I went to work today even though my boss told me I didn't have to. Now I'm gonna eat dinner and then watch the Office. Don't wanna study...

3L.

Have had two exams this week, both closed book.

Spent most of last week tying up journal crap and helping a prof with an impromptu project.

Also, grandmother died and mom had surgery.

Have one more exam tomorrow, Admin, which is my hardest class and is open book, open Google.

I have never had a harder time making myself care. Holy Lord.

First final is tomorrow at 2 PM, and I've spent the past 30 minutes scouring the internet for the perfect pair of chinos and watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

So have I. Although I've found it's not too hard for the prof to make an exam that renders it little benefit.

Yep. I'll probably do OK on the multiple choice in that regard, but it doesn't do much for issue spotters.

I was planning on waking up early and getting after it today.

Instead I woke up 10 minutes ago, and the only thing I'm a hurry to do is get a bagel.

I woke up at 1:45 AM to start work and pulled three allnighters in a week's span, trying to catch up to a point where I'm confident I won't be bottom quarter. Never reached that point. Exam in an hour. RIP, law-school GPA.

Very true. This is where all the lazy 2Ls report in on their failed attempts at caring and commiserate with others
