We had a policy question and an issue spotter, admittedly I don't think my policy answer was very good, but I wrote 2300 words for the issue spotter and am quite confident I didn't miss anything major, and felt like I addressed a whole lot of minor issues too.
I am getting riduclously worried about this whole process. I can't even imagine how someone would have written 4000 words or something on my Torts issue spotter today. I don't believe that I missed 6 pages worth of issues, yet I"m sure that people wrote that much.
Don't worry too much about it. I'm in a different section than you and our two questions were hybrid issue spotter/policy questions. So you needed to write a lot. It's quite possible that your Torts test really didn't have all that much. Or other people ramble/meander constantly.
Anyway, I've heard sections two and three at Penn have it much easier than section one. So don't worry.
By the way, 2 3/4 hours? What's wrong with a 3 hour test?
When all you learn for the entire semester is the tort of negligence, I guess there's just not much you can put on the exam.
Our exams haven't been too bad, but Civ Pro is going to be just insanely difficult. 70 Multiple Choice questions and then time pressured issue/ policy questions.
We spent half the semester on intentional torts which barely came up on the exam. We spent two classes on product liability and that was half the test. Granted, our professor barely taught us anything, so I guess it really doesn't matter how much time we spent on a given subject in class, since we all learned it from supplements anyway.
That was our COntracts class. First 5 weeks were spent on damages, and then damages consisted of 3 or 4 out of 35 multiple choice questions on the final, and damages weren't relevant at all for the essay question.
