Coming off this evenings exam, I recalled a statement from Scott a few years ago...

...one more exam to go.

Sounds like your professor was aggrandizing power at the expense of campus dining services.

She's a Dean, so basically she does whatever she wants.
I hear that campus dining services are pretty excellent, but the presence of undergrads makes me ill and exam period brings out the crazy in everyone.

My property course was last semester. I suspect we had a RAP question worked into the final, but the self protective data dump that happened almost instantaneously with hitting the submit button has purged my mind of these details.

I've watched three episodes of Veronica Mars. One episode of dateline and one episode of 48 hours? That should count as studying right?

I say yes. Although I would have given more credit if you substituted the 48 hours episode with the movie 48 hours.

You know what doesn't cause stress? Removing 400 words from an exam response in 5 minutes and submitting with 1 minute left. I'm sure the edits were coherent and make for a well-constructed response...discretionary D, here I come

lol you're crazy. I was only close to word count on Q1, and I was 100 words under still.

Sounds like you spotted ALL THE ISSUES. Discretionary A+ probably.

Or, I talked about one issue (subjective expectation of privacy) for 2,000 words before realizing I needed discuss the other 35 lurking issues. You can bet I nailed that one analysis though!

I did that except with the car stuff. "Oh good it's been 2 hours and I haven't started talking about the actual search yet, great, super work there bud."

Also I kind of misread the prompt for the policy questions so my answer to that was not per se wrong, but it sure won't be what he was expecting!

8 days until misery begins here. I hear "concur, but for different reasons" is the way to go.

I'm going all out "circuit COA got it right who am I to say any different" but I think I can swing some "well here are some other reasons the court is right they probably were just too lazy to add them"

Planning to deal with this the same way I dealt with moot court - wait until the last day and do it all at once.

As someone who's judged write-on, it matters way, way more that you get bluebooking and basic grammar right than what position you take (hint: we don't care - just know how to make an argument and correctly cite a case to support it).

I know this is a joke but for even for serial procrastinators like me, you need to start asap. Consider yourselves warned, and think of me fondly when you first look at the materials halfway through the week and go "damn should've listened to pnj."
