Yes it's terrible. Use other people's outlines to guide you.

Hmm. I'm using the reverse strategy. I want to create my own outline and then use other people's outlines to pare down what I have, since I'm sure I'm going to put down too much information on the first go around.

I figure this will increase the time I spend going over the cases.

If you have the time to do that go for it. I used other people's outlines because I am terrible at formatting etc so I take way too much time figuring out where I should put what. Other outlines helped with that and also with making sure I wasn't missing anything.

Ah. That makes sense too. I guess it all works out in the end no matter which way you do it.

I CAN ACCEPT mediocrity if I KNOW I GAVE IT 100%.

CAN YOU?

DIG DEEP BROTHERS and SISTERS... GO HARD then GO HARDER.
TAKE A BREAK from TIME TO TIME. RECHARGE, REBOOT, and GET ON IT AGAIN.

WE HAVE BUT A FEW SHORT WEEKS TO CHANGE THE COURSE OF OUR LIVES.... LETS DO IT! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

MY GOAL IS TO BOOK EVERY CLASS AND BURN OUT ON THE PLANE RIDE HOME FOR THE HOLDIAYS! WHY? BECAUSE IF I STRIVE FOR PERFECTION AND COME UP SHORT, THAT IS STILL GONNA HOPEFULLY BE NEAR TOP OF MY CLASS. DO NOT SETTLE FOR LESS. IF I get pwned.... SO BE IT.

GET RICH OR DIE TRYING. CSWS.


There we go. That's what I needed.

Good luck 1Ls! I was in your shoes last year, and it certainly was stressful. But just keep working hard and you will all do great.
