Dude fuck curved electives


Yup, how am I supposed to care enough to gun a 2 credit class w/ as much material as a 4 credit class?

Your 1L electives are only 2 credits? That sucks. At Penn ours are 3 (compared to 4 for a normal class), so (at least IMO) there's no real psychology difference between them. Plus, electives only meet twice a week, so you can't really cover as much material.

I love my friends and family, and I'm grateful that they would want to reassure me, but I may scream if I hear "You're smart and you've worked hard so you'll do fine" again.

Just me? Tell me it's not just me.

I feel like I have negative mental resources. I can't even imagine what I am going to write for my statutory interpretation exam other than LOL.

I just took my first crim practice exam and it seems to be a different beast than other 1L classes - the different crimes and the issues seem easy to spot. Does it all just come down to getting as many issues into your answers within the word limit as possible? What's the dividing line for crim on good/ok exams?

This beer reminds me of the moment Fall semester when we were raising the CSWS banner high after a long grind. My fellow soldiers, tonight my journey ends. My first final is on Monday. After a full three weeks of fourteen hour days, I am taking the night off to reminisce and relax. And I just wanted to say thank you.

Thank you for the motivation. The camaraderie. But most of all, thank you for refusing to top. And we shall never stop.

See you on the other side.

TL;DR - Thanks, team. Appreciate all you did.

well, theoretically, the self-defense wouldn't be necessary because the threat would be neither imminent nor immediate. now whether the dude could get away with it would be another thing.

lets say X is the initial deadly agressor then communicates his intent to no longer attack + in good faith does so. all of this is taking place in X's house. after X does this, Y still is pissed and poses an imminent threat. does the fact that X was the initial deadly agressor block X from using castle doctrine.

i think it depends what kind of jurisdiction you are in. i think some jurisdictions require X to "tag out" by leaving in order to renew his privileges. MPC may not require him to do that but I think common law required X to tag out. i could be wrong though.
