If I hadn't taken the hardest test ever on Monday, the test today would have made me ragequit. I was MAF when that "weakness" question came up. That case sucks.


Bro. That test.

Write on is going to be pleasant in comparison to that.

That feel. And those multiple packets. And to think I cut some of my teacher eval because I thought it was too mean and personal.

The most, and only, credited exam advice is make sure you poop before the exam. I spent like 20% of my evidence exam pretending that someone snuck colonblow into my cocopuffs

LOL, I decimated that guy in that eval. Not that it matters, he's tenured for life. I just laughed when we got packet after packet after packet. The worst part for me though, is that I was convinced this guy was NOT going to stick to his word and keep the "exact format" he told us about, and one of my friends convinced me that it's going to be the same thing. Open the test, NOPE! Here's an extra issue spotter for you! The second wasn't even that bad, it was just the principle of him stressing that it would be exactly as he described.

so are you mich guys just hanging out for now?

I hate you.


I also hate me and this hangover I'm nursing.

Serious question guys:

One of my best friends is having his wedding the end of August (Monday the 26th), but he lives on the west coast. How viable is it going to be to make it out there in light of OCI/CBs? I know I want to keep my schedule as open as possible so that I can schedule a CB (assuming I get one lol), at the soonest possible date.... I could fly out over the weekend and fly back Monday evening (though this would mean I'd be coming in the morning of Tuesday -- which means I could potentially be losing 2 days)

Well, if you plan to go, you will be in high demand at OCI and your callbacks will ruin your plans and you won't be able to refund your ticket and you'll be mad you ever thought it would work out. If you don't plan to go, OCI will be a bust and you will be upset that you planned to be available all for naught. Your move.

I have no idea.

As long as you aren't missing any actual OCI days, I think this is fine. When I did mine way back when now, I basically had a full week of interviews, then 2 callbacks the next week, 3 the week after, 2 the week after that, 2 the week after that, and then 1 or 2 even later, and those were supposedly the earliest they could book me. I wasn't proactive about calling them up and seeing if I could move them up, but it worked out fine for me.

Yeah 0 actual OCI days would be missed since those are early August. Obviously there's no way in hell I'd miss those.
