Fingers crossed all the 3Ls in my classes just give no more fucks.


Same, I'm basically going to include a note to my ME saying, "Sorry, but getting a job and grades are way more important than writing a good note. It's my understanding that pretty much every note gets a gentleman's A/A+ and my clerking aspirations are pretty much out the window at this point. If I had a choice, you wouldn't have to read my 45 pages of non-sequiturs." My note looks like a bad wikipedia article; half the propositions' footnotes just say 'cite needed'.

you get... grades? for journal?

Not really. You can only brag about CBs BEFORE people start getting offers.

Got my commercial transactions quiz grades back. First was an epic fail, second was good enough to think I might not have to pass-fail the class. And we have a drop one rule, so now I'm considering putting actual effort in here.

spent the past 2 hours sicne posting this reading celebrity gossip. and I dont even care abt that crap usually.

I learned that mariah carey used to have her assistants rip out the size 8/10 tags and sew in size 4 tags in all her clothes. amusing. but this little tidbit of info will not get me an A.

We get no credit for journal whatsoever.

I probably wouldn't do it if I got no credits. It's a lot of work, and so far not a single employer has given a fuck. It's still less credits than its worth, but, at least its something.

3L checking in here to give you guys some hope:

job secured, I've skipped around 75% of all my classes. Haphazardly created two outlines in the past two weeks, grabbed an outline from a previous gunner for another class, and my fluff class probably doesnt have an exam (he hasn't told us yet, unbelievably). Plan on spending thanksgiving break playing skyrim incessantly, studying for each class for 2-3 days and enjoying my B/B+s


speaking of, could anyone PM me some M/C practice exams for fed tax plz?

Trying to learn evidence. Skipped the class 6 times this semester for CBs. Zero motivation. This sucks.
