First final is in a few days. Did a shit ton of PTs. Have all my answers pre-pagraphed. Typing them out non-stop. I feel like I have too much time on my hands. Any suggestions?

Nothing like celebrating the end of finals before they even start.

Edit: Oh, and on my open notebooks, will copying my pre-pagraphed answers (mostly memorized) be a time sink?

Ugh. Took my first practice Con Law test and it seems like he wants something entirely different than how he presented class.

I hate when this happens.

Oh, interesting tidbit from today: my crim exam was the second longest exam in penn law history, in terms of page count. It was 75 pages. Apparently the longest was a 79 page securities regulations (or something like that) exam a few years ago. :shock:

Nope, none at all. Just multiple choice questions.

Grats to everyone who's done/almost done! Two more for me. Ks on monday and conlaw on friday. I just want to take the damn tests now and get them over with. I'm kind of just casually going through my notes and past exams, but for some reason I can't get super intense about it. I feel like anything I do now isn't going to make a difference either way. Anyone else feeling like this?

PMed someone this but realized it can help anyone taking property, no one should have to suffer like this.

Most don't have model Answers, this site does, but you've gotta drop down the profs to see them, the professors with property stuff are: Bernhardt, Cadgene, Duramy, Gonzalez, Morris, Neitz, Stanley, and VanCleve
http://law.ggu.edu/law-library/study-ai ... -professor

Haven't examined all of the quality yet but generally seem to be good and have multiple answers to compare,

Edit: And BuckinghamB, come on homie, we're almost there. Just gotta make it another 7 days. We got this.
