After hours of studying for the MC section of our LRW exam, the hierarchy of Bluebooking goes something like this:

Amoeba < Minnietron < Chimpanzee < Median 1L < LR Editor < WLRK Associate < SCOTUS Clerk

Haha! Well, that doesn't seem like a good option. Guess I will shoot for F-.
Right there with you on caffeine level. Fortunately, there is no one here to see my intense concentration and jerky motions.

Apparently someone in our section recently dropped out.

Interesting. Tell me more. I am not aware of anyone dropping out in our section, but we did have that guy who killed himself.

Yeah, sad story. Or, well, not much of a story really, since this happened like 6 weeks into the semester, and nobody really knew him well.

Neither LRW nor Bluebook belong anywhere near the word fun.

It also tests our understanding of: Hierarchy of Authority, LW Conventions, editing for conciseness, general punctuation/grammar...
Though, it is a nice dip into the kiddy pool of exams before heading to New Smyrna Beach, Fla.

The exam also tests our knowledge of where commas go, and I'm embarrassingly ignorant of whatever the fucking rules are for that. Thanks for fucking over your international students, gTTTown.

I know the problem is me, but why do they penalize me for it? Things are bad enough as is

Finally finished a good looking draft of my open note memo, with about 100 words left in the word count limit.
Still feel completely awful, depressed, and overwhelmed.

LRW Bluebooking exams are definitely a real thing, and also really shitty. I probably shouldn't complain since I did well, but it still took me a stupid number of hours to complete. Once I saw what I missed, I felt really stupid. It felt even worse when I found out that I missed getting an A- by half a point.

We had several assignments including a MC research exam as a midterm. To prep us for that exam, we had what are called wonder-ponders, a way for us to learn how to use the resources here. Two sets of specific questions in packets we had go through the various sources of info in the library to answer. Questions like where to find a specific type of case or research question were then asked on the exam. Then we had a closed memo, an open memo, and an email memo which is related to the open memo. The open memo is what we're all supposed to turn in tomorrow. Next semester we do pleadings and stuff.

I assume most of you guys are actually doing more?
