24-hour take home exam

Postby waxecstatic » Wed Dec 12, 2012 6:18 pm

I have one that is going on right now....23 hours left. And ya know what, given how long these fact patterns are, it may literally take me 24 hours to complete.

Did you remember to reset your clocks at home for daylight savings time ?

You could always paste the exam here like that kid from Duke did last year. Lulz.

I barely got it in on time. The exam literally would have required 24 hours if a person really wanted to submit anything beyond adequate. I had no time to edit, and no time to see if I hit upon every issue. There were 4 separate questions, each with its own fact pattern. I don't think I could have done any better, unless of course I was on Adderall or something similar thereby taking sleep out of the equation.
