Spotting the issues alone is time consuming, then explaining how to apply six variations on a single rule to the facts at hand, plus coming up with reasonable policy arguments to change the law so the case comes out "better," when are you supposed to have time to even look at your notes in an exam?

I found that having notes was almost a liability last semester, I kept thinking that I would have time to find something I forgot, but I never did.

The only exception was single question in a multiple choice section that wanted to know who said what in a ALI argument over a restatement rule. :P


I dread the thought of a take-home exam. There's just no way to convince yourself you've done your best. I know I'd spend every minute I was trying to sleep or eat worrying that I should be working.

ICK.

I'd love to join this LGBT club.  It's the Legos, Gobots, Barbies, and other Toys group, right?  I'll show up with an armful of toys.

This is why I am dreading it.

And the real reason I do outlines is because I find it the best way to go over my notes to study. I never really have time to use it.

Hey, you don't want to push me in Nav's direction. That wonderful hair color and a uniform to boot, are you kidding me? :D

Uh oh.  You'd better be careful - do you really want Nav mad at you?

Exactly why I do it.

no *&^% sherlock, ANY organizational skill is only a tool. You could own HomeDepot and not ever build a house.

what lawstudent hasn't. You make it sound like a big deal, how is it "hard" to spot an issue and know the elements and IRAC it into an essay? ???

All I know is you guys bellyache about something that you get to cheat on. How could anyone get less than 100% if they have their cribnotes right out in the open with unlimited access?

 :D  Clearly you've never taken a LS fact pattern, spot the issues, essay exam.


Just where does policy come in on your exams?  All my exam have been/will be 50%+ policy - IRAC alone won't get you to median.

how does that even make sense?
I'm in a lynch mob?  I had no idea.  This is really worrying; I really don't have time for another extra-curricular activity.

in all seriousness, my exam today was kinda rough.  even with my notes  ::) ::) ::) ::) ::)  but I only have one left, so I'm happy.  I really can't believe the worst part is almost over though.  I'm really looking forward to this summer (and next year) :)

I bet they let you guys bring in drinks to it and pee in more than one at a time during the exam. (they're afraid we'll play "swords" or something at my school)

By the way, who the hell but "bunnies" in my post? Mods and their damn geenie powers! >:(
