marry rich.


ok, i'm pretty much out until finals are over. 

Good luck to both of you with your finals. 

Unfortunately, I cannot marry rich.  Well, maybe I can.  I want to marry a cute pastry chef girl.  Having handmade pastries fed to me by my supercute wife each night is my ultimate fantasy.  :)

I agree- I've been using LSD as a crutch to avoid studying. Only 1 final left, and it's civ pro. Two days left to study, and I'm already burned out. I think I peaked too early. Those who slacked all semester will have no trouble finding motivation at this point, but I started outlining 12 hrs/weekend almost 2 months ago. I'm tired.

Here is my law school grading horror story:

I had a class where you could work in groups on the final exam, the only requirement was that what you turned in you wrote yourself (so you could not split it up, with each person writing half). Me and my best friend in law school work on this together. Both of us are pretty smart and have the about the same GPA. We hash it all out, agree on the issues and points, then go off to work on it. We each write our responses, we both come to the same conclusions, use the same cases, make the same points. One of us got an A, second highest raw grade in the class, the other a C+. There is no rhyme or reason to it, we compared papers afterwards, no conclusions different, just different writing styles. We still don’t know what happened there, prof must have been in a bad mood when he got to the C+ paper.


Mattheis,

In the Loyola thread, you said exams weren't random, and started a huge argument over it. You also said you were so successful you didn't care about jobs, but in this thread you say you had to take out student loans.

So are you just a liar, or a full blown psycho?

matthies has given more good advice on this board than you will ever know, noob.

although i doubt you're really a noob, my guess is that you're just a gutless cretin afraid to use his/her own name.

Rev, Wait a second. Why would you ruin a thread with statements which completely contradict what you wrote in another thread? By what definition is that not psychotic behavior? Students use this board for credible information.

1. You ruined the thread by arguing about it.
2. You're on loans because you're not anywhere near successful.
You're a lying piece of sh*t and a thread ruining troll.
