For some reason my section in general seems lazy so far this semster.

However, Im sure the quality of exam answers will go up significantly now that everyone has a a semester under their belt.

How are ya'll planning on outlining this semester. Last semester I did pretty well with taking old outlines and making them my own. I'm debating making my own this semester to see if it will help at all.

Sorry guys, but I just found out some news and needed to share this somewhere. Please don't take it as bragging (also, please don't quote since it probably outs me).

*good news*

Interview went well (I think) today bros. Got some more scheduled for next week. I should probably be applying to more, since I have nothing secure, but I'm so damn lazy.

If I found out I was *Super Awesome* I'd want to tell everyone I know and most people I don't know. No apology necessary. Good work dude.

Thanks all, I don't know what to do with all this pent up excitement. Get blitzed on a Tuesday night? Stay calm and keep grinding?

IGF. Drink. CSWS success correlates alcohol intake. Then, back to work.

Congrats, IGF!

Any tips for a closed book Con Law exam? I did very well on my closed book Ks last semester, but Con Law is quite a different animal!

Also, has anyone read their profs' law review articles to get an insight into how they think for the purposes of exam prep?

Who do you have this semester? Are there decent outlines for everyone? Last semester there were not good outlines on two of my profs.
