Also closed book, no outline.


haha nice #humblebrag

In all seriousness, maybe just comb through whatever you wrote one or two more times to fix any types or throw in an extra couple of args you may have just not thought of while writing. I mean, if it makes even a bit of sense you might get at least one point and that's better than none. Once you do that, and you're confident you're done, then just let it be and walk out proud (or as proud as you can be after an exam).

FWIW I was finishing civ pro practice exams with ~45-30 minutes left but only finished the real exam with ~5 minutes to spare

How long is your test? I had a four hour closed book contracts exam and it would be impossible to get all the points with an hour to spare.

Yeah if you're finishing your practice tests with answers identical to the model answers an hour early, grats on the Cali.

I think I'm somewhere between ready to repeatedly smash my fist into the imaginary panic button repeatedly and giving up and sobbing myself to sleep before this closed book torts exam.

Made a 30 page outline, hand wrote an attack outline, writing flash cards, and can't remember a freaking thing.

Test is 2 fact patterns (usually 2 pages each) and some multiple choice. 3.5 hours and the multiple choice takes 30-45min.

hey guys I'm finishing my contracts PTs with ~ 2 hours extra, I would finish with 3 hours spare time except for the fact that the hiring partner at Cravath keeps calling me to ask for my resume and interrupting me. What do you guys suggest I do with the extra time? Hold out for Wachtell?

I cound Cali's lecture on Joint and Several Liability to be outstanding as well as the Assault/Batter distinction (even though it wasn't tested :| )

The Civ Pro Lectures are awful however.

Or don't. Cus I don't need anything else to worry about.

This is a school/professor specific thing right?
