A little less than 4 hours before final #2, property. Anyone have questions about how finals work or anything while it's still fresh in our jumbled 1L minds?
If you want to procrastinate and give the rundown, I'd love to read it. I often wonder about the mechanics of course selection, finals, OCI, etc.; as well as how you find out how to do all of this.
I'll start with finals. Basically
*The exam calendar gets posted sometime mid-semester
*All 1L finals are taken at the same time, same day, by everyone (except second semester elective)
*Each prof typically writes their own final, and the curve is within your section, not the whole 1L class
*This year we had Torts on Wed Dec. 7th at 1pm, Property today at 1pm, and Contracts on Friday at 1pm.
*What's nice about this is you have 3 or 4 days between finals to prepare.
*Finals are 2.5-3.5 hours long, depending on the teacher, and can be made up of essay, short answer, multiple choice or (most likely) a combo of two or three of those
*One contracts prof is giving a take home final this semester, but that's only 2 out of 10 sections.
