Get with the times man. I dropped out of society to live in a van by the river and teach 1Ls how to IRAC.

Stop TLSing. Read you outline once or twice then watch a relaxing tv show or movie in bed. Then try to get as much sleep as possible. GLGL

A week is a lifetime to learn the law. If you're way stressed out, go do something else for a bit and clear your head. Then get back to the grind.

You'll be fine.

Bolded is what I think I knew, but definitely needed to hear. Nothing a little racquetball and a cup of coffee isn't going to fix.

what do you suggest doing the night before the exam? I've heard to stop studying after dinner and just relax. I realize it's different for everyone but is that credited

Do what you did in college. Why change it up just for law school?

Of course, I remember one night in college I pulled an all-nighter before an exam, but that was the exception. I wouldn't do that...

Depends on how fucked you are. If you know most of the material, reread your outline and maybe a couple important cases, watch tv & sleep early. If you don't know or understand key concepts, probably better to drill them and learn as much as you can, but still sleep 6 hrs min.

Well, luckily you don't need to hit every issue for a good grade. But even if you did, can't change it now. You'll just crush the rest of your exams.

Whats done is done. You probably spotted some that others missed, that's how it goes. Don't worry. Move on to the next one.

I can still tell you all of the issues I missed on each 1L exam, and was above median on all of them. Your best bet by far is to put it out of your head and not think about it. Missing issues doesn't mean poor grades (of course if doesn't mean good grades either... but since there's nothing you can do and no way to get better info, you're really best off drinking and getting your mind off of it!)
