Spoon was just trying to keep some mystique going, he's cooler online than in person.

Damn, Sink the Biz was going on? I may have missed where the main action was taking place. Maybe that's why things seemed kind of lame. I wonder what 1Ls you played with.

Anyway, confirmed, you didn't meet me.


A 1L guy from Indianapolis who had a Butler shirt on, another 1L who outed himself as a TLS user (don't know if he wants us saying who he is, though).

:shock: or was he!

Thanks for the PM, btw, I'm sorry I never got back to you. :oops: But I think I met a girl who is part of your group. She was telling us how she was going to a karaoke bar with her practice group.

I did my first Con law prac exam question today, and I can officially say I hate Con Law. This is going to be a marathon of an exam, the most words i wrote last semester was 5 or 6 thousand in Torts, I have a feeling I may get around 8 thousand easily in con law.

No kidding. I am confident I will clear my 4 hours torts exam word count in conlaw. That's not good.

I think property will be the worst. No outline. A clusterfuck of information. The rule against perpetuities. Only the strong will survive.

Im less worried about property, He really just wants every minority rule or majority rule out there, but his old exams arent that bad. THey are all simpsons themed

I guess I'm not as clever as I thought I was.

I haven't felt comfortable enough in that class to look at any questions yet. I briefly looked at the format a few months ago, but that's it.

Whatever you are more comfortable with. Mac people need to do a little more work to get the exam software to work. I can't imagine picking a computer based on an hour of messing with software to take a test. As long as you have an internet connection you should be fine.

Just know that you have to use bootcamp for examsoft (or the unheard of, taking an exam by hand). I personally have a mac and was fine adding windows, but I know some people that were opposed, and borrowed family members computers for exams to get around it.

I also think I have been confusing kings with the south florida kid. I think San Fran and South Florida have the same colors and acronyms.

New avatar be damned, I still can't spot him.

Edit: Someone find Kings, he is wearing the stripes.

Good. I'm not a huge fan of [long series of questions today guy/girl] ... however, I'm starting to believe that kings doesn't exist at all...

I was somewhat concerned you were actually [long series of questions today guy/girl]. Who coincidentally killed an amazing 20 minutes asking I don't know what today. The continuing questions made me intentionally slam my knee into a desk support, just to make sure I could still pain. It was something about... uh... deeds?

Forced to talk soon... we have about 16-18 people left in the class on the left side, but I suppose the people still on the right side don't count.

I was going to say that you seemed too nice to be South Florida kid. And my god, what a terrible bunch of attention he demanded today, wasting 20 minutes of 80 people's time. For those at home, that is 1600 minutes this fucking vampire sucked away from the rest of the class. Luckily, we got answered how stupid of a question will our property teacher address.

Kings you give me hope. I suck when I get cold called on. Do professors at all about how you respond in class? Does it effect your affect your grade at all?
