outlining/organizing notes is much more stressful if you think you'll use them on the test, so yeah.

Just remember that exams are nothing more than a conversation between you and the professor. Talk about what you talked about all semester, and keep in mind that all of your classmates likely feel just as stressed at this moment.

Just think about the good old days when schools such as Harvard Law would have 1L classes last all year so the first and only exams took place in April/May. Imagine how much time you would have to freak out over things with that schedule.

Then, immediately swim in the loot - a la Scrooge McDuck - from a 1L SA!

basically. I just finished my K's outline (mostly from scratch) and it's a lot of pages. When it comes to the exam, I'm probably barely going to make it past the index.

My sights are set slightly below median. That way there is less chance of disappointment!

This is a likely scenario, given the effect of the curve. Isn't there an 80% chance of getting some variety of B?

If I finish anywhere above median, I am going to be a happy camper #meetyouatmedian

No joke. Less self-imposed expectations = increased calm = improved confidence = better exam results (science says so) = SCOTUS.
Shoot. I just set the bar too high = imminent failure = lowered expectations = increased calm...

Hopefully I am at the right part of the cycle come exam days!

I mean, I'll probably live through it, if that's what you mean.

Final exams rarely seem to cause fatalities.

Best part about outlining is that I get to put on my headphones and have my own EDM party and drink too much coffee. Not sure if this is a good thing.
I'm actually surprised at how few people are in the law library right now.

Same; a lot of people in my section apparently just don't like studying in the library. They say it feels dreary or oppressive or whatever. I don't get it, but I'm not complaining cuz it just means more open carrels for me
