My contracts outline is short as well. Civ Pro will probably end up around 35 or so pages plus flow charts, and Reg State is around 25 pages.

all of my outlines are relatively similar in length (tho didnt start torts lol) but I just naturally condense info in my head so I don't really know how I would stretch mine too much longer so it doesn't make sense to me really how people can have such long outlines... (aside from a decent buffer from cases included - I dont really have too many in mine, and for what I do the info isnt all that long about them)

Study breaks perusing Symplicity and NALP unsurprisingly hollow and not restorative.

(refreshes TLS in case more procrastination can be had)

so taking an old exam for contracts with a group of people (its from 02 bc apparently our professor hasn't taught this in awhile) its a 2 hour test, most people have 1300-1500+ words between the 3 questions and I'm over here with 975 words.... like I should just drop out now right?

They could be typing stuff that isn't on point-- at least that was the case with me on a practice exam I just took.
