In my entire life I have never felt defeated. I’ve even lost at track meets and never felt defeated b/c I gave my all…but on my Torts Exam today, I left feeling as though I had been defeated and I gave my very best!!!
That was the craziest exam that I have ever encountered (and probably ever will encounter) in my life! First of all, there were 50 multiple choice that were not too bad, but some would go into this insane fact pattern with all of these people doing all of these things and then the question would say, “what response is most likely true? A) Shavell would say that X should not recover b/c… b) Grady would say that so and so… c) Posner would say that since the tort law crisis Y should blah blah blah” Thankfully, I made a THEORY OUTLINE as well!
Another thing, we did not even have a fact pattern for an essay!!! We were given a 4 line article from a news source and had to write about it and then we could choose to write on 1 of the other 2 essays. One was on X and Y’s debate (forgot their names) on the Last Clear Chance Doctrine and the other was on the Comparative Negligence System.
I did my best…
