Best. Schedule. Ever.  I only have one class on Friday.  It's Legal Bibliography, which is only an 8 week class.  After 8 weeks, I'm finished with class for the week on Thursday at 11:45 am.

I got the afternoon torts class.  I was hopeing for the morning one.  In the end though, I do much better with afternoon classes than morning ones, so it works out.  I didn't realize legal bib was only 8 weeks - sweet!

Did you take a course with Sobelson? I heard he's difficult, what do you think?

I called the financial aid office and got my COA amended to over $25,000 a year to cover the tuition and fee increase.  This COA has appeared on my GoSolar page and they said that they changed my GradPLUS loan request accordingly.  Anyone else see this change yet?

Hey, I did not have Sobelson, but in my opinion there is no such thing as having a hard professor. You are competing for a rank not necessarily a grade. So if the professor is hard, everyone has the same difficulty. And if the professor is easy then everyone has the same advantage. Your grade is based on one test and you have to figure out how to do better then the 70 other people in your class. If you thought the professor was impossible, maybe everyone else did also.

Just figure out what the professor wants and then get it on paper during your three hour exam. Personally I would rather have a "hard" professor. There is more opportunity to figure out what he wants, and to really analyze the facts and make a good argument on the exam. On "easy" exams everyone spots the issues and there is less opportunity to make an argument that other people did not think of.

Sorry for the long answer to your short question.
