That was a fucking terrible realization. Going from the highest high of thinking you're** done to getting your packet and realizing you still have a shit ton left.

Fucking law school is soul crushing.

This. Also, does that mean we need to start a new thread? As soon as the write on ends, I'm done with this CSWS attitude.

The actual content for LR write-on materials is only 50 pages lol

Doesn't appear to be any separate bluebooking. Just a 3000 word essay (w/ bluebooked citations of course) + short PS + short additional sheet.
