Law School Exam Pressure (Psychology and Nerves)

Postby jwinaz » Mon Jan 14, 2013 11:11 pm

I'm very curious about the law school exam process. I know many threads have already been written about it, but I'm curious about a specific aspect of exams relating to nerves and psychology.

If we were to have a signfican't amount of debt going into law school and knowing all that was riding on exams, does that ever take a psychological toll on some people? Have you or others ever let nerves and anxiety get to you before the exams?

Thank you guys much for any willingness to share and discuss.

Yes. Believe it or not, law students are human beings too.
