Your screen name is GA-fan.  You can't be at UGA though since noone knows their % until spring.  Intriguing...

I find law school to be an easy environment for controling your weight.  The schedule is flexible enough to fit in exercise every day and it is one great way to relieve stress.  I don't buy it when people claim that they are too busy to exercise.  Even while preparing for finals there are at least a few free hours in the day.

Anyone know why law schools wait so long to give out grades?  Students in other programs get their grades earlier.

We don't get our grades until after classes start again.  This is a very long time to wait. >:(

Don't get too confident. If a law school exam feels too easy, you most likely missed something; OR the professor doesn't know how to write a good exam to the curve, e.g. you get 97 or 98 out of 100 multiple choice questions right on a torts exam and you end up with an A- (actually happened to somebody I know).

That was my point.  The easier the exam, the more difficult it will be to stand out and write an A response.

Just finished with my last one yesterday and I got the feeling that all the exams except for Torts were pretty easy.  There didn't seem to be any tricky issues and after talking with a lot of classmates it doesn't sound like I missed anything.  While this would be great if it weren't for the curve, how will the profs grade the exams.  We all seemed to have caught all the issues.  I guess it may be based on how organized and well written our essays were.  If that's the case, I don't feel all that confident.  Has anyone else gotten the same feeling from exams?

Message boards in general are negative.  Everyone loves to complain.  That being said, I am quite happy.  Why?  I finished my last final at noon today.  I'm off until January 9.  All is right with the world. ;D

I wrote out a few sentences for the rules that I found useful.  Then I just copied them into  my answer when necessary.  You know International Shoe minimum contacts will be there so write up a few sentences about it.  Same with the two step Hannah test for the Erie Doctrine and the rules on diversity.  That stuff has to show up on virtually every 1L fall civ pro exam, so get the rules ready to go.  Then you'll have more time for the analysis.

If you are bringing books, I found the charts in the crunch time book pretty useful, but never looked at them during my exam.  I did look up a supplemental jurisdiction rule in my Gilbert's outline though.

Yes. I have heard that it is extremely difficult to fail out of T1; however, after a poor performance, you can imagine the possiblity still keeps creeping into my mind.

I really just think I failed to organize well and missed a couple of issues. Hopefully the answers I did get correctly show the Prof that I'm not a complete idiot who just didn't bother studying. But alas, I have one more final and should really stop worrying.

Thanks for the comments and best of luck on exams.

I'm at a T1 and have a guy in my section who is repeating 1L.  I don't think it happens too often here.
