It seems like it:
Duty, Breach, Causation, Damages . . . and intentional torts . . . and affirmative defenses. And strict liability. Did I get it?

By chilling out and relaxing, I'm taking the advice of virtually every 2L, 3L, anonymous internet tipster, friend, parent, and soccer coach I know.
Tomorrow is my first exam, Civil Procedure, and until then I'm happy to take any questions.
I'm going to get pretty drunk and then . . .
Wake up at 9 in the morning to fly home. I have a job thingie shortly thereafter.
Drinks of choice? SOs? Sex with an endless parade of strangers? Nine consecutive hours of Lost? Let's hear your plans.

I keep asking my professors about how they grade the exams and how to do well, but I get nothing out of them but vapid platitudes about "arguing both sides" and "writing clearly and concisely."
Law school is so unfair that way. Everything is so arbitrary and unclear. I'm reading a book by Duncan Kennedy that totally rips on the entire law school system, and I love it. He mentions how law school cultivates a few legal analysis skills in the minority, whereas it could have constant feedback and really turn everyone into a great lawyer.

Just as many of my classmates are ramping up for our finals next week, I have only a few practice exams left for Elements (with which I feel fine), I feel fine with CivPro, and I can't bring myself to do more work. Give it up? Take the weekend off?
It's strange to have this much spare time around Finals, but I feel burned-out and uninterested.
Man, I love Jim Croce.
But that's not the way it feels.
