Had a similar reaction earlier today for my exam Thursday. Back to the quest of reading the whole internet.

Pretty much mirrors my attitude toward my fed courts final tomorrow. It really doesn't help that I know half of the class is taking it P/F, so (1) I probably can't do worse than them, but (2) I'll never do better than the other half who are total gunners.

Also, note cases? More like NOPE cases.

Ugh, my class is the same way. Chock full of law review gunners - the worst of the worst. Not only that, there are maybe two-three kids in my class who aren't in the top 20%. Usually I have the luxury of looking around and thinking "ok, that person is going to take the C," but this time that person could well be me. The curve is going to suck.

Anyway, I wish you the best of luck in your final tomorrow.

I am about to get absolutely destroyed by Estates and Trusts. I kinda get estates, and I barely opened the book on trusts. I have like 5 days to go over everything and then its gonna be hell. Seriously praying for a B.

Just keep telling yourself that you've never failed before. You'll be fine. Good luck!

Where ya lookin' at in CO? I bet the old CU grads will be like, "Hey look, just as fucked up as our grades."


Fun as fuck exam today. And by fun as fuck, I mean thank gawd that shit's P/F for me. Wrote, "I'm totes shitfaced, brah!" on the exam in response to the hypo.


I have a place on the outskirts of Boulder. It's Gunbarrel, if you're familiar, but technically the address is Boulder. So Denver / Boulder area.

Heh. Ain't that the truth.

East Coasties care about the kind of car you drive. Coloradans care about the trail you ride.

Yeah my sister is older and went to Vermont for a 2 year grad program. Was totally depressed. I think I kind of learned my lesson from here. I was considering going to CLS/NYU or Chicago, and it probably made more sense from everything but a QOL standpoint.

You make less even with the bonus. Though it definitely makes up a lot of the difference.

Shit, I knew that in August. Still wishing I didn't take a UCC course. Fucking rules and their applications.
