Sound familiar? It should :beatup:

I mentioned yesterday that the final exam for Contracts II was this morning at 9:00am. After studying extensively, feeling fairly comfortable with the material, I turned to the first page of the exam this morning…

…and was promptly stumped :(


It took me just over an hour to work my way through 30 multiple choice questions, most of which were decided by me narrowing down to what seemed like two equally-plausible answers and just randomly guessing between them.

@#$%^&@ #$!#

I then spent the second hour trying to put together something competent on the essay, my response for which (I learned after consulting Madame Prosecutor post-exam) likely left out several chunks of analysis.

@#$%^&@ #$!# $%^#$% &**!@ #$#% :mad:

There’s at least a chance that the curve will lift me up to passing.  But after my barely-passing performance last semester, followed by my equally barely-passing performance on this semester’s midterms, this makes #3. It certainly looks like an unpleasant trendline…

But the past is in the past, and I’ve got roughly -0- ability to change it now. So I’m taking the night off, then back on the studying grind with Torts tomorrow in preparation for Saturday’s exam. I’ll keep y’all posted on how it goes :)

Good luck to everyone still going through exams!  And have a great night everybody! :D

It’s too bad about that Ks exam. :( That’s rough. But I love your attitude, and I’m sure you’ll nail Torts. Nail it to the wall! :D Yay! Go, team, go! USA! USA! USA!

Bad luck about the exam.. still,it might have gone better than you thought! :-)

You’ve definitely got the right attitude in not dwelling too much about the past and focusing you exams yet to come. Best of luck with those! :-)

Thanks y’all, I truly appreciate everyone’s faith in me :)

Though how ironic would it be if I turned out to be an otherwise-badass attorney, but had to hire someone else to draw up the representation agreements I used with my clients? :beatup:
