When you have moments of doubt and guilt you have to perservere! Think about Torts instead!

I think as time goes by (for me anyway) the differences in the MPC, common law and statutory law start to become somewhat instinctive. At least for criminal law.

My Tort's prof said law school is "relentless". I think that is the most fitting adjective.
I wish there was something I could plug in to my brain so that I could stop doing all the reading.
Even if you had time for the supplemental, how do you know which is best?
I'm with you on this one!

I tried it, and it looks like only practice tests to me. Did really well on the Crimes section though.
The fact patterns are helpful for demonstration.

I still don't understand why we can't miss one week of classes to prepare for exams. I mean, I'd be willing to go a week longer to get that study time.
Sometimes it seems like they are all just SADISTS!  :-*

I have the Barbri books, Emmanuel, Examples and Explanations, FlashLaw Flashcards.....
I do not know how I am possibly going to have the time to do a satisfactory review! It is hard enough just keeping up the the reading.
At our school we are not given a reading period! We go from class one week to midterm the next. Our Torts exam is December 23 and our Contracts is January 3!

Just got the "Sum and Substance" for Contracts. It is awesome and the pages are perforated and hole punched. Great for study!

I agree. Briefing and outlining reinforce what I am learning. I am in a briefing group and still do my own briefs. I don't understand the case as well if I don't.

I have a BA in English Lit and an MS in Mass Comm/Media Management. I don't think my Master's offered anything except to show that I could succeed on a higher plane than undergrad. I think it gave me a boost that I had my Master's but my school said they didn't calculate graduate degrees in the admissions formula.
I did well on the LSAT because I knew I had to.
Hope that helped

Lots of caffeine and a bit of sugar seem to work for me.
I have just recently discovered the joys of lots of coffee!
Seriously though. I don't work but I have 2 under 6. It's hard I know.
Don't give up, today!
