Know everything. On exam, write brilliant clear concise answer about everything.

It's so easy, even a caveman can do it.

What's sad is I have already started to morph into a freaking superdork myself.

Butters,

I would start by going to each of your professors and asking them this question.  The best advice I can give you is to IRAC.  Have you learned this yet at your school?

Issue - spot the issue

Rule- State the rule

Analysis- Provide strong analysis

Conclusion - write your conclusion

Don't worry if this is confusing now.  It will get easier after you practice some.  Another idea is to take practice exams and make course outlines.  However, your grades are pretty strong and suggest that you probably don't need to alter your study habits significantly.  [maybe you can offer me some advice;)]  I think if you just practice IRAC, you probably will see some results when grades come in. 

Good luck!!!

Sorry, took a break from outlining contracts to be sarcastic.  Won't happen again.  I should have just called butters a dipshit or a jackass and moved on.

Kill self.  Alternatively, pose this quandary to one of your classmates and have him/her do the job for you.

This is the correct response.
