P/F ftw?


No, it is graded, just seems like less work. We had several assignments throughout the semester that were completion grades, a practice memo (completion grade) and a final memo (something like 80%). I just haven't been doing all this bluebooking stuff that you all seem stuck with. Just citations with some state specific rules but really not that bad or complicated.

Any fun exercises with signals and explanatory parentheticals?



Yup. See also, sure. (explaining an affirmative response to the question).

:D



Nice!

Sorry for being a crappy OP and never checking this thread. If someone could just tell me what to name it and what to make the poll, I will do it, as long as neither change would require me to admonish and ban myself (looking at you, Hand)

I know this is putting the cart before the horse, but when firms ask about my below median 1L gpa, do you think "Netflix released Jessica Jones three weeks before exams" is an acceptable answer?

Word. We need to coordinate bidding so repetition gives credence to the "reason."

one class left for the semester. woop woop.

my crim law professor teaches her class from a script and last Thursday we reached the end of it. I totally blew off the reading for this morning since it wasn't on the script. Got an email this morning saying that class was cancelled. Super excellent.

Good luck with finals prep and exams, guys.

Just a reminder from the other side: IT GETS SO MUCH BETTER.

Feel free to substitute your own descriptors for the scale of 1 to 10 and vote based on that

Love the new title (and poll), though I vote we keep the Trump font for at least a little while longer. Somehow it still feels fitting.

Thanks!
Quick question. Which type of psychological warfare is more effective at GULC around exam time: projecting ineptitude, thus fueling overconfidence; or overt gunning, creating a sinking feeling of despair?

Coordinate for PSRP then. The wider net we cast with the "reason" the more likely it will take hold...

Pft. Psychological warfare? Up your game and leave some of these bad boys around common study areas or in the far corners of the exam room away from your seat.
