If it makes you feel better, here's a true quote from my 2L Evidence class (~ 150 students) which thankfully wasn't directed to me:"If you ever say that to a judge, I hope he tells you to shut the f**ck up and sit down."So don't feel that bad.
not that bad! because in the law school i am attending we expect to be called at least once a week in every subject and 1/3 of our grade is from recitation.
Ah...law school.Isn't it fun.I think everyone who has been in law school for more than two years can recite one of these horror stories.

Oh, I had the facts of the case down, and the rule and how it was applied in the holding, but I did not properly understand the procedural posture of the case--like an idiot, I figured it wasn't as important since this was a torts class--and I got it wrong. Worse, I wasn't smooth or confident in my wrongness.I'm sure everyone thinks I'm a dolt now, but I'm not so sure everyone else in the classroom experienced the same vertigo, the silent-in-the-room, everybody-looking, heart-stopping badness of it all. Crow--it's what's for dinner!
