No. Writing a law exam is like: "Iusse number oen is that the P hit the D in a way that might hve been negligent of C and P had wern't contributorily negligent. Also, there might be a proximate cause isssue, see Palfgrat, or their could be some other shit. Hey can I get extra time for having ADD?"

108 WPM with a 99.1% accuracy. I guess programming for the last 6 years has its advantages. :)

This was using a laptop, I might be able to go faster using a regular keyboard.

Programmer here as well. I'm hoping the advantage pays off during law school exams :D

111 wpm, 100% accuracy. A lot of this is influenced by the quote you get. Some of the them just roll off of your fingers. Anyway, this is addicting as hell...

Yeah sometimes I get close to 60, then others I get close to 30. Also, there are plenty of people getting above 200. That shit's crazy.

Don't get too far ahead of yourselves folks. Typing speed probably explains LS grades about .05%.

Thanks I was really starting to worry that my 42 wpm would screw me over. It just sucks that many people on here can literally type triple what I type in the allotted time.

That brings back memories. I was sad to learn Mavis Beacon isn't actually a real person.

Way too many computer games. You basically had to type >100 wpm to effectively talk shit in video games while still playing.

This is also how I learned to type. However, that was playing StarCraft when I was in 5th grade, and I haven't really played computer games since. Hence my 70 wpm.

Tried a few times and averaged about 85. Highest was like 92 @ 99%. I can't even imagine going 120+ but I see some people on there are at like 150 :shock:

edit: I think I just got a passage that was also part of an RC passage.
