Temple.

I didn't pay a whole shit load of attention during the semester, outlined (along with the other classes) for the past 3/4 weeks. The exam was torts, two essays and I just feel like: (1) i rambled too much; (2) i really dindt follow a general plan for my essay becasue i saw other issues as I was working; (3) i didnt talk about cause as coherently as i should have; and (4) i wasted a lot of time/didnt write as much as others around me did (it was 2.5 hours, I spent 1 hour and 45 mins on first question, then just 45 on the second and they were equally weighed); (5) it appears others wrote ALOT more than I did, etc.

How should I feel?

You're probably fine. At most schools you have to screw up fairly seriously to fail. That said, don't expect a great grade.

man that could easily turn out to be an A, you really have no idea. i highly doubt you failed though, so don't sweat it.

Yea, I guess you're right.

Thanks

For what it's worth, curve is about a 3.01
