I got all my grades :shock: they're not what I expected in a good way

Edit: if you have recs for ConLaw (I'm assuming Chemerinsky) or Property I'd love to hear them.

Honestly, I didn't use any supplements. That said, I got a fantastic crimlaw outline from an upperclassman that I modded for use. Also, our contracts class was pretty abnormal (very policy/econ focussed and we used the profs manifesto and selected cases instead of a case book), so supplements there would have been of very limited use.

I used supps for Civ Pro and K's.
Torts was based solely off of my own notes.
Used an upperclassman's insane 116p outline for Crim.
Some classes I studied for a day, other classes a week.
Got the same grade in every class. :cry:

My number one takeaway is that making an ass out of yourself in class isn't a big deal and has no bearing on how well you do during the exam. This next semester, my goal is to start outlining waaaaay sooner and PTing sooner. If there is one thing that helped me the most, it was PTing.

Grats on the SC clerkship

My experience was kinda the opposite of general TLS: more work + more helpful supplemental material = higher grade. Less work + slacking during the semester = lower grade.

I don't have grades yet so I can't verify, but I definitely feel like I spent too much time outlining leading up to finals and not enough time PTing. It wasn't until I started PTing that I even understood any of that stuff on my outlines

I had a couple of classes where there were so few practice exams to work with (0 for one and like 3 for the other), and another where the format was 24 hr take home so all I could really do was bullet-point answers to the past exams.

so that sucked, I guess.

Joscellin destroyed my dreams of being rank 1 and well you know what they say about 2nd place: the first person to lose.

Can some other people who are disappointed in their first-semester grades also chime in, so I don't feel so alone?

You had to get a perfect score in my writing class to get an A. Fuck that shit.

What kind of psychopath wants a 24 hour take home. I'd drop out if I found out I had a 24 hour take home.
