Had my torts mid-term today and I'm not sure how to handle when multiple issues come up involving the same rules. For example, there were about 6 different claims of negligence that revolved around whether a duty was breached. I know you are supposed to state the rule (depending on professor) before going into the analysis, but I felt that it would be extremely redundant restating the same rules over and over, and in the later issues I just jumped straight to the analysis using the same rules (of course, still stating that its the same type of issue). Is this generally acceptable, or should I just learn to repeat myself over and over again?

I didn't repeat myself, I just said "see A v B for the negligence standard. In this case..." insert analysis here.

Having a really hard time getting back to studying after that first exam. On the one hand, I feel pretty prepared, on the other hand, I know that there is a lot of work I should be doing still.

Gonna have to just push through, it looks like.

Pretty much how I've felt too, and my next final is tomorrow. Oh well.

Same here! I have Prop tomorrow and then Civ Pro on Monday, but I think my motivation is actually negative right now. I wasn't sure it was possible, but I think I may have made it happen.

At library, not studying. Five days until last final, hoping motivation kicks in before next week.

I can't see this turning out well. Don't know wether I should try and winnow out the issues on this exam and expect them to be on the next exam. Need to figure out my strategy, haha.

On the one hand, I think I do have some advantage in thinking quickly and writing under a time constrained testing environment, so it might not necessarily be best for me to do a take home because I don't always have the ambition to just grind on the same thing for days on end.

On the other, it would at least cut down on the need to study everything.
