Thinking about dropping sports law to take advanced crim.  Anyone have any thoughts?

I am in both. Can't you drop some other class instead? (Actually, I'm only in Advanced Crim if the first week entices me more than Crim Pro, and if Samaha scares me off with too much work/socratic.)

I guarantee you didn't write less than me, so don't worry.

1,980.  Can you beat that?

1283  :o


What does Henderson say? Something like short and right is better than long and right, to say nothing of long and wrong. As long as your 1283 was all right, then you're in good shape.

He never said anything about short and wrong though...

Okay, you win.  I feel better.  Thanks!   :D

Fair enough... as long as you rocked Tax then you're in good shape :)

(This is very tongue in cheek because I know Tax rocked my world as well - capital gains, what capital gains?)

I have no idea how an answer can be long and wrong.  I mean, as long as the BLL/issues are on point, and you analyze for pages, it's gotta be win-win, no?

There can be long answers that are full of rambling bull.  Long can mean you have no idea what to say and thus are throwing anything you can think of into the exam.  Maybe you get some stuff correct, but maybe you get more wrong.

Some professors have a really big problem with the "kitchen sink" approach.
