Maybe they just want to be polite.

God I'm losing it.

Three hours this morning--that I hardly remember--and my entire contracts grade is based on that?
I can't wrap my head around it. It was fine--it was what I studied for--but man, seems even more arbitrary post-exam than it did yesterday.

why don't you just ask them if they think it's wrong?

have you purged all your contracts knowledge out of your brain yet?

Let's see...nope. I can still quote the UCC. That's the trouble with closed book--you really have to glue it in there.

And yes--ask study group to tell you if you're off! Fight about it! That's the idea, right?

I concur with all about finals being harder in fact than in theory.

We fought about one thing for awhile and I was unconvinced of its irrelevance, group ended up ambivalent with only one firmly opposed.  Everything else, people were like "Oh yeah."

Best not to dwell. It's one little *extra* issue you're worried about. Worry about missing huge issues, not about adding potentially irrelevant issues.

I think I've lost the capability to tell the difference at this point.

I'm so burnt after that exam that I'm not going to do anything either.  and it does make me feel better to know that others are suffering similarly.  if that makes me a bad person so be it.  I mean, after all, I'm already a future lawyer.  Can't really get any worse.
