I took my exam today! Yay me!

Good job!  You're already done?  Too good to take 8 hours?

It sounds so reasonable when you say it.

Word limit. Nothing more to be done.

So from that email Henderson sent out, it seems as though, at one of the classes I missed, he explained the structure of the exam. Umm... anyone willing to email me a summary of what he said?

Or could someone post it here....I missed this class too I missed all classes

FIXED!!

Just kidding :) Ummm... the exam will be three questions: one issue spotter, 30 T/F questions and one policy question. He claims that it will be relatively straightforward, etc etc, but they all say that.

Haha, thanks.  Just to be clear on the T/F....we have to have an explanatory sentence for every T/F question right?...not just the ones we think are ambiguous


I think so. If you look at one of his old exams I think it specifically mentions that each answer should be no more than 25 words and some explanation may simply be a case/statute reference.

Good idea 1Ls - having a party celebrating the end of finals before finals are over is very smart.

To be fair, they might as well.  They will be done and not like any non-1L would show anyway.

*puts coat back in closet*

*steps back into room*

Does any 2L have reassuring words about Elements?  After two weeks of taking practice exams, I feel like I've learned nothing, and that it's largely an aptitude test, anyway.  Shame on me for trying to go beyond words of wisdom from 2Ls.
