Law review competition? Sorry, dude, it's totally miz. It ruined my week off and now I start work tomorrow and I don't feel the least bit refreshed after the school year. Luckily we have two social events this week, so maybe "working" will actually help me feel more relaxed :)

I swear this is worse than studying for finals.  And I actually _like_ Bluebooking, so this must be a complete horror for those who don't.  I've barely started the note section, as I want to get the editing mostly done first.  Can't believe I have eight more days of this.

Sorry to hear you didn't get a break between competition and work.  I have scores of classmates who are trying to do this while working -- don't know how they're doing it.  Maybe I'm just a wimp (granted, I still can't see out of one eye, so I have some small excuse...)  ::)

I finally finished exams and am just starting my writing comp (turn in on June 1)... I thought I'd like the note writing more, but I'm finding the edit to be more interesting than I ever expected.... I'm such a geek.  :P

Also, if you haven't heard about this already, it's ridiculous: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/8693397.stm

You mean all these years I thought my teachers were talking about trade in humans, when it really was all about small percussion instruments?

Wait, what happened with your Civ Pro exam?

Our prof explicitly told us in class that the 30 question/1 essay exam would be graded 66/33.  She then sent out exam instructions which said the exam would be graded according to the suggested time on each section, but didn't indicate that the weights had changed from the 66/33 she'd previously stated.  In the exam, the suggested times were 90 minutes each.  Because I'm getting a special exam, I didn't even notice the change, but then, neither did a lot of standard test takers.  I thus allotted my time 66/33, and spent way too little time on my essay.  But, c'est la vie -- I probably should have paid better attention and not relied on her previous statements.  I'm certainly not running to ATL to whine about it.  Sh!t happens.  It probably all balances out in the end.

How many ways does ATL suck?  Grumble...

I don't think the Garvey email was newsworthy, but I think it's kind of crappy if the word limit thing wasn't made clear to all involved. The resolution seems pretty fair to me and only a bunch of pedantic, peckish lawyers (or lawyers-in-training) would make such a big deal about the solution.

I agree that it did suck (although I feel the mess up with our CivPro exam was much worse,) but seriously -- there are proctors everywhere, and the professor was less than a few hundred yards away.  If you don't understand the exam instructions, ask for a clarification.   But sending the whole mess to ATL, knowing that Elie and the commentors are going to trash this woman's reputation -- and, predictably, claim she was an affirmative action hire and make sexist/racist comments -- is such a mean-spirited thing to do.  Is a slight disadvantage on one exam worth it?  (Well, apparently at my POS school it is, so I guess that question was purely rhetorical...)

Remarkable... you actually said something funny.

Who are you, and what have you done with Cooley?  (Whatever it is, keep doing it!)
