Got LR back. No big surprise since we already got the memo back. Was hoping to stay at median and I am happy I did.

Now just anxiously awaiting the classes I put 800x the effort/time into.

My wife (who lives 9 hours away from me) would kill me. Also, I have a white house tour the next day.

I had a nightmare last night that I missed all of the intentional torts issues on my exam. Damn, torts is still haunting me even a week afterward!

to make you feel better, last night i had a dream about contracts.. one of the terms in the contract was ambiguous, so i had to go into a statutory construction explination about the meaning of the term, the relevance of the term in the structure of the sentence, why the comma or semi colon can alter its meaning, the impact of the term and its intent and how depending on the judge who reads it could rule either way.

ended up with a 2 on the entire exam because i spent so much time, and couldnt get past that issue.... woke up realizing leg reg is still haunting me, and that i should have written my exam differently...a nd now as a result i failed both leg reg and contracts

I'm not even done with finals and I've had traumatizing dreams already of past exams.

Dream that I had a 2 day contracts exam, and that I got my grade for the 1st day's answer before the start of the 2nd half. I got 17/80 points on the exam and a D grade! I don't think that's even possible in law school. Eventually, I realized that I had turned in my notes instead of the actual essay, but the stress from it caused me to mess up the 2nd day of the exam. I woke up very angry at my brain for putting me through stress when I should be resting.

Can't f'ing wait for 24 hours from now when I'll be done with my last final and can officially join this thread

For some reason I keep seeing "remainder" all around town...it's like my Property final keeps haunting me everywhere I turn. FML.

Video game! You get to bounce around, kick ass, kill dragons, help people, kill people, etc. It's epic.

Finally done!!!! Saved the worst for last... I'm pretty sure I got a C.

Four hour final, seven questions, only wrote ~2200 words. He said he values brevity, and he takes points off for redundant or frivolous analysis. I finished with about an hour left and spent the rest of the time inserting cites to cases and the Restatement, which he said he preferred. It said on the instructions that his model answers varied from half a page to a page and a half double spaced. But everyone wrote so much more than I did....I still feel like I missed something huge.

Someone convince me I'm not going to get a C.

I'm going to stop thinking about it now. Time to bake cookies and drink!

Aw... you can get an old xbox 360 used for cheap I'm sure. It can be an 'I survived first semester of 1L' present. I actually asked my husband for Skyrim for Christmas because I've been hearing so much about it.

Unnecessary. ilovesf has an N64, so TCR is GoldenEye until N64 no longer functions. Then Skyrim.

I know that there's a designated release day for all my grades, but I don't know when that day is. The registrar listed it the past few years on their website, but nothing this year.

No good can ever come from this.


It's best to think of 1L finals like sodom and gomorrah, finishing them like God smiting the cities with fire, and discussing them afterward like being turned into a pile of salt because you turned around to look behind you as you fled the destruction.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Yeah I discussed mine for like 5 min with a couple people (mostly just bitching about the format or the topics, not really our answers) and I still ended up convinced that I am below median. Ugh.

A professor that comes out and says this MEANS it. If others ignored the professor's request for brevity, that is a Bad Thing for them. Long answers have their place, but for statements as explicit as this, I predict good things for your grade.

Got my Torts grade back today and it's an A :D thrilled and definitely humbled by that, seriously. Not so sure any of my other grades will be that pretty, but it's a good start.
