- No notes during class this semester. Just sit and listen and absorb. zone out in class
- No making my own outline. Just memorized old ones
- LEARN how to take exams, not just take practice exams where I do the same wrong stuff every time. For me, this was cutting out the paragraphs of background info I gave on exams in 1st semester and modifying IRAC to CRAC, which 2 of my professors told me was much better.
I slightly modified your approach for how I approached class this semester
. Congrats on the huge improvement by the way.
Anyways, got my last grade back: A- in con law. GPA this semester: 3.7, overall GPA 3.6.
Through countless hours of scouring through TLS, I've been able to guesstimate that my overall GPA of a 3.6 is around top 20% of the class, which I'm thrilled about. Did better this semester while putting in probably 1/2 the effort I put in last semester.
