Halfway Through

As an afterthought, I did finish exams. The last one, IP Survey, was brutal. Just too much to write about with too little time. This was my open book exam, and for the record I'd like to put down the technique I plan on using in the future. I'm going to have two outlines, one that is very short and with the most basic elements. The other outline will be filled with details and cases. So if I have time to add in the details I will, but if there's no time I won't get caught up picking and choosing which sub-elements to include.

Also, I was annoyed that my prof didn't give time recommendations for each section. He had 5 short answers worth 50 points each, and one larger question worth 120 points. I'm terrible at math (that's why I'm in law school...) and I really couldn't spend the time working out fractions. It was frustrating.

Good luck in your exams.

Is that a vote for my exam prep methods? ;)

Glad the post-exam debauchery was excellent. The 1L debauchery fizzled awfully quick. I think everyone was too shell shocked to drink. Oh, well.

Lawyerlike: I had to read over your advice again, but yeah, I think you were right. :P

Dave: My 2L friends claim the incoming 1Ls don't party as much as we did... You gotta pick it up! Next semester will be better b/c people won't bounce out of SF as quickly.

Congrads :) I hope you lots of fun. I like your outline method. I am fiiinnnally going back to school and saddly cannot wait to get back to the outlining, I think 2 outlines would be a huge help

It's nice to know that, if my methods fail me, they might help someone else - hopefully your marks turn out well!
