Anyway, I spotted the ambiguity and analyzed it under both. As a result, the section only consisted of very abbreviated answers as I tried to work myself through. Half of the class did not pick up on the discrepancy and ended up with plenty of time left. So, I finished later then everyone and wrote terrible answers but did well.And Dr., a B+ is good at your school?

Isn't a B+ good at any school? We're on a B curve, so above that must be good, right

It wasn't great but, considering I thought I had failed, I was pretty happy with it. Even though I also received a B in Torts and a B in Con Law, I still ended up with a 3.55 at the end of the year (the rest of my grades were A-'s or A's.)With that said, I'm pretty sure I just scored my first fvcking C on an Evidence exam. Fvck, fvck, fvck, fvck, fvck! Forget what I said about how easy it is for me to "take an exam and forget about it" because I'm such an awesome 2L who has learned so much from experience.
Few more questions for you helpful people:- I just realized how craptastic my outline is for my exam Monday. So I'm reworking it. As I do it, though, I'm trying to move chunks of text and figure out how it fits together, doing it very slowly. Do you think I still have a good chance of learning the material and doing well Monday? (I hope so, because we only have two days between each exam.)- Also, do you guys MEMORIZE your outlines or just make sure you're familiar? For my last final, I know I'm going to have to memorize stuff because it's closed-book... but I just don't see otherwise how to memorize so much stuff. Although, after that torts test, I felt like I looked at my outline way too much. I'm trying to stay positive!
