1st A! :)
« on: August 13, 2005, 03:24:25 PM »
Just wanted to brag.  I got my 1st A in law school this summer (I am a rising 2L) in FL Civ Pro.  My toes won't be touching the ground anytime soon . . . :)

grats! What methodology did you employ for the exams? (IE. Delaney, getting to maybe, Leews, your own?)

Hope there are more A's in your future!

Thanks, I am not really sure what happened.  The one thing that I did differently from my previous semesters is that I didn't make an outline.  I think it's because my notes are generally in outline format anyway and whenever I try to make an outline again, I end up reducing my notes so much that I may be cutting out some important details.  The only thing I did was review my notes and highlight important parts from each case/section.

Also, I spoke with the professor about my previous grades (I've had her before), and saw that b/c I was so time-pressured, I wouldn't read the question carefully, so this time, I made sure to read the question twice before answering.

I was also a lot more relaxed this time which helped.  During the first two semesters, I was really stressed, so I think I will just try to relax more.
