If the beer doesn't help, you could try lowering your grade-expectation standards. That could ease some of the stress.

In class, UNtimed? That would be insane. You would have people ordering food to be delivered to the room so they didn't have to leave...
This Spring, I've had everything from week long take home, to one day take home, to open book and closed book in-class exams.
They are all painful in their own special ways, but I think I like the one-day take-home the best. Can sort of work at my own pace, but not have to go insane for an entire week....
"It doesn't help you be a better lawyer but nevertheless firms look at it as a proxy for excellence so you just suck it up and do it."
It also might be a decent gauge of whether you'll be able to handle the overwhelming and excruciatingly-tiresome work that many BigLaw firms will be expecting you to do as an Associate.
If you can handle law review and keep a smile on your face, maybe you can handle BigLaw, too.
I see a lot of schools have a minimum for units completed (around 28 or so) before you can transfer.
I did PT Fall/FT Spring, and am a few units short, but will be taking a class this Summer.
Anybody know if schools will even consider my application before my Summer units are officially added?
It's a nasty dilemma, because by then I'm sure they'll have filled all of their transfer spots...
Being paranoid is half the fun of law school!
Which "friends" actually want you to fail, which teacher is going to cold-call you when you least expect it, and yes, of course, which bag is full of fireworks?
It's an awesome ride.
