Wow I just tanked on my first final this semester.

No, I'm not one of those guys who goes on about his exams even if he did well.  I have never been so clueless, quite frankly.  Let's hope there are people in my class dumber than I am.

Feel free to console me.

I'm sure you're not the only one who feels that way.  :)
Oh yea...you're delicious and lean, but unsustainable and not to be consumed daily.

Perhaps you got a "hard version" of the test and it will be graded accordingly.  Assuming this, it follows that you can worry a bit less about your grade.

My first semester, I felt like I bombed my Civ Pro and Contracts finals.

I felt like I nailed the Crim and Torts finals.

Set the curve on the first two, rode the curve on the last two. It is impossible to know how you did until you see the grade come up on the screen.

I thought that about my first final last year. Ended up with a very nice grade.

If you thought it was that hard, so did everyone else.  It's on a curve.  No worries.

The worse I think I did, the better I allways do, the better I think I did, the worse I actually do, been that way for five years. Its over, move on and worry about when you get your grades, no good to worry about it now.

Yeah, this seems to be some kind of strange, iron law of exam taking for me. No matter how great I think I do on an exam, I end up with a mediocre grade. The exams I felt like I bombed always came back with good grades. Go figure.
