Been putting that shit off til the last minute. Oh well, that's my Sunday.

Are people making their own outlines? Or using good ones from past years and then going through and supplementing or changing around as necessary?

The latter

I'm making my own, but for a lot of cases I'm just copy-pasting other people's facts and holdings parts if they look good.

I still can't bring myself to look at my memo. I hope I'm not the only one.

You're not entirely only, though I'm slowly getting there.

FWIW, I wish somebody had told me at the beginning of the semester to find an outline to take notes on for my classes that don't allow computers. Actually, maybe for all of my classes. Finally did that for the past few weeks, and having an outline to work from makes it much easier to get the important facts from what the professor is saying. Currently staring at 3 notebooks of scribbles. :roll:

Does anyone know if we'll be informed of our grade on the open memo prior to the release of first semester grades? I found some bluebooking errors on mine and I'm pretty worried now :(

see this is why you NEVER LOOK AT IT AGAIN! i would try to put it out of your mind if you can. and anyway i can't imagine a few minor bluebooking errors would kill your grade. i mean if it looks like you didn't even open up the bluebook all semester or something, maybe...

a friend told me they didn't find out by finals last year. granted, the memos were due later last year, but i'd just assume they won't come out by then and then that's one less thing to worry over.

Shouldn't we be using the open memo as our writing sample for summer jobs though?

You're right, I should have just left it alone. I'm sure it would be noticeable though, but I'll try not to stress out over it.

Are you all using your LRW memo as writing sample?

It just makes me feel stupid because the haunted house topic is such a joke...

I know I shouldn't be thinking about this, but does anyone know if we can see our grades as soon as our profs put them in the system, or if they all just get dumped on us at once at the end of Jan?

Did LRW memo come back first? (Want to apply with that as a writing sample possibly, want to see memo first to make sure it wasn't total shit)

Our climkenko didn't give feedback for the open memo.
