Typed.

you can hand write them if you want but that would generally put you at a big disadvantage.

I hear that some still give the option to bluebook, but it's basically the norm as far as I understand it to use a comp. Looks like you're at NU--good stuff!

Yes, good stuff indeed. Thanks. I'll get back to my free typing lesson (typingweb.com) then.

NU uses Word, uploaded via Examsoft. Happily, we don't use the whole Examsoft suite to lock down our computers and act as a crippled word processor.

The administration here sets a self-imposed deadline for downloading examsoft. He missed it, so he had to hand write his exams. The source of his frustration was missing the arbitrary deadline rather than the program itself.

I see. Regardless, that was some compelling prose.
