I love that the 1L thread is 4 times as long as this one and that there are approximately zero posts in the 3L thread.

If all else fails, claim business judgment rule. 8)

I got that exam next monday. Ill start studying on friday.

Its strange when I look back at 1L fall exams and how stressed and motivated to study I was during the weeks leading up to finals. Now all I do is watch sports and feel very little stress. I cant believe the Hawks lost last night....

I need to find out if my 2L employer looks at grades.

I dont want to derail the thread too much, but you must see a game at the UC - its an incredible experience. Games v. the wings are so crazy. I still cant believe I gave up my partial season ticket plan to go to ls/practice in a state that doesnt give a shit about hockey...

Can you even derail a 2L exam prep thread? I think derailing it is more accurate of what's going on for everyone than keeping it on topic.

This. Dear God, this. I haven't done jack and don't intend to for at least the rest of today. I can't get stressed for some reason (and I really need to be). No idea if my employer looks at grades, but I sure hope not.

We care --- but only during seasons in which the Hurricanes will win (or at least make it to) the finals (so about twice during their existence). :D

My future employer expressed some doubt over whether I really would be better at corporate over litigation, like I thought I would be. 2L is going to be all about bulking up on lit-based courses and bombing, just to show them how much I would really suck at it. (Planning on taking my transcript into the hiring partner's office and being all "LOOK LOOK, I TOLD YOU SO.")

I love how we don't have any humor left in us.
It's been replaced by self-loathing.

Haha. I didn't mean that in a mean way :oops: It just made me feel better that everyone was/is going through the same thing I am. I'm sure you'll do just fine this semester :) I still care so very much this year. It sucks.

I guess you can browse the 1L thread? I think this thread is reserved for apathy and procrastination. Why do you still care so much? Maybe that will help motivate us.

I don't know, I just do. It's hard for me not to care about something that I'm going into lots of debt for (granted, my scholarship with no grade stipulation is nice :o )

Fuck you law school. I'm up at 6:30 in the morning just so tomorrow when I have to be up at 5:30 to be at school in time for an exam, it won't be so awful.

I got up early the other day so I could knock out a practice test and work through the E&E. Instead, I played Skyrim for 5 hours. It's been that kind of semester
