Possible FML in progress.... hopefully not, but who knows with this ridiculous law school 3 hour essay exam nonsense. As I've stated before, I'm much rather take 3-4 exams for each course throughout the semester - that way we'd at least have some feedback insofar as what the profs would like to see on an exam. Knowing the material isn't enough... knowing your professor's preferred style seems to be what LS is all about. To me, that seems like an arbitrary method of grading.
I agree, and I think it's ridiculous (I am aware I am preaching to the choir here) that the majority of my profs have said things like "the people who understand the material the best often don't get the best grades" and "the people who make the best lawyers often don't get the best grades". Well, shouldn't finding out those two things probably be the point of the exams? I mean, if the goal is to end up with good lawyers who understand the law, it seems like a system that purposefully tests something else is completely idiotic.
