I think after finals are over on Friday, and after the huge party that is going down, I am going to bail for a couple days to my families lake house, drink some beers, and just try and figure everything out.


I am really impressed with how straight you have your head on.

Good luck.

This.

Also, it sounds like you need to have a post-finals chat about that whole blow up. Girls (and guys) can have emotional blow-ups where they say all sorts of shit they don't mean, but they don't realize just how crazy they sounded because their emotions got in the way of thinking rationally about what's going on during the blow-up.

If she's worth it to you, you should definitely be upfront about your feelings and confusion after finals are over. But definitely don't worry about it now.

Nice, good call. Do all of that in that order and then try and talk it out with her if you still want to. But forreal you should tell her that if she wants to stay together that should never happen again. It's not fair for her to put you through all of that during 1L finals just because you didn't pay enough attention to her.

This... I'm going to be real I have a pretty serious girlfriend. Didn't see her for two moths and told her that we weren't going to text at all during the two weeks of finals unless I was taking a break. She was totally cool and supportive. Not saying that every girl is the same, but dude if she loves you shes going to want whats best for both of you. Sounds like she was being selfish. Sorry for the insensitivity, but it sounds like if she couldn't suck it up for you you should reevaluate.

My fiancé was great with the lack of attention all semester but decided to get extra needy right around when finals started. Oh well. Cost of being in a serious relationship I suppose.

Fiance > serious girlfriend. Sometimes close and confused, but not the same lol. She's getting the hardware I feel like mine might also have had some pressure because if we didn't make it threw no chance that I would propose. Sorry for anyone offended for me maybe sounding like a dick.

Just got back from my civ pro final. Feel like I absolutely destroyed it. I feel great. Honestly just hoping that doesn't mean I missed some big issues (I was wondering that during the exam too haha, so I went back and made sure to double check for everything I could think of, and I think I hit everything). But goddamn it feels good to be done, regardless of how it went!

Finished Torts!! All done!!

I focused on hitting as many issues as possible rather than talking at length about fewer things. I'm hoping that pays off for me. There's no word counter on my software but I estimated about 10,700 . Don't know if that's a lot or a little.

I'm hoping I did well on this one, I'm feeling pretty good about it.

Congrats to all of you!

1 or 2 guides on here suggest 2000 words per hour as a good rate (and its been what I've targeting), so unless you had like a 5 hour exam, you wrote a LOT haha.

Depending on how much time you had that's an ungodly amount and probably inaccurate. Do you think you wrote over 20 pages? That's what you're claiming right now.

This and how was your spelling on this? I am curious because I wrote 8,000 words in about 2 hours and 45 minutes and my spelling was atrocious.

Damn, you had time to spell check as well? How long was your exam? Mine was 3 hours and 15 minutes with multiple choice, policy, and like 13 page fact pattern. I had no time to spell check :(

"Estimating" 10,700? That's an odd number to estimate.
