this semester I've felt so melted after exams I can't remember what's on them.


that's probably a good thing. it's awful having to think about exams afterwards

I feel like I knew what I missed, as it would randomly come to me when doing other things, last semester. I have a feeling this learned amnesia is either genius or a bad sign.

Eh, curve is overrated when 10% of the school gets double the amount of time as you.

If people are unhappy with their grades one semester, at least in my school, it's ridiculously easy to make up a medical condition and just get extra time. It's a great system, because if you don't want to have to commit yourself to the library to get good grades, it's much easier to just get twice the time. The majority of students with moral convictions and what not are put at a disadvantage, but probably should have researched this before choosing schools.

That is shocking. Kinda negates the whole reason people are put in fixed sections for 1L, blind grading, etc.

I know, everyone else feels shitty about it so I know it was just one of those but ugh it's still a terrible feeling. Torts on Monday though so no time to dwell.

Doesn't matter. If I stopped fighting just because both hands were tied behind my back, Max L. would still have my lunch money.

This is just a challenge. It's time to focus, apply doctrine to fact like it's never been done before and achieve. It is time to win the WAR.
