Curious if anyone knows anything about his grading/what he looks for... then again, I dont see how this is even an answerable question.
I typed a shitton, which may be good for some professors, but not others. Know now that I missed a couple issues, but I guess who doesnt miss at least a couple.
After taking 17 law school exams, I have found my response is exactly the same after every single one: I wake up in the middle of the night realizing that I missed Issue X, or forgot to answer part of the question, or something. I can tell you with certainty that there is zero correlation between my post-exam anxiety and the final grade; no matter how well or poorly I did, I always have the same anxiety. The best way to cope with this, I think, is to realize (1) post-exam stress is a normal response to a high-stakes exam, and (2) there is nothing you can do about the exam now, so let it go and move on to the next one.
Trying to handicap how you did on the exam after you have taken it is only going to stress you out and waste your time. Don't bother counting pages, or re-reading the exam, or comparing your answer with others. There will be plenty of time to do all that after you know the grade.
