It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It was really refreshing to see all the desheveled 1Ls today. I hope most of you awoke from the caffeine induced euphoria with an epipheny...you have just passed your first law school exam. The initiation rites have passed, and you now will find yourself pausing every time someone in your family uses "in consideration" during winter break.

But I am perplexed that someone ran the following Google Search. With that, if anyone wants to spread malicious rumors about the "dumbest mod at Boalt Hall," the floor is yours. And as Mr. Chavez so courteously mentioned below, best of luck to everyone on finals (which is kinda pointless when you're in direct competition, but I say it anyway).

Edit: Modified AIM away message from a friend attending Hastings: "I join X and Y in sarcastically thanking all of our classmates who voted to have our Criminal Law final be closed book." Let this be a lesson to all budding law students and 1Ls who may face this next semester...given a choice NEVER EVER choose closed book exam over anything else, including shit you might see on Fear Factor (pun intended).

I am about to say something that should make all of the other income tax taking people happy. That was easily the hardest final I have ever taken in my life. "Less time pressure than last year" Jesus christ I can't imagine what last years final must have been like.Oh well, P=JD.

As a note to current 1ls I strongly discourage tax unless you are actually interested in it. I had been told that I should take it to be well rounded. The person who told me that has been mysteriously missing for the last two weeks.

Good luck to everyone taking finals unless you took the tax final, or are taking the corporations final in which case I hope something bad, but not terrible happened/happens to you

Cheers

It was kind of funny how the Big Rakowski gave an issue-spotter question with no issues in it. What a funny guy! Almost as funny as Dean Harvey.

The no issues is one thing, but then what the hell was the cryptic instruction at the end all about? "These problems are NOT straight forward."

Actually, if you read the "issue" spotter backwards, it made more sense.

if anyone is using a latham usb key to save your work, be sure to back it up. one student reportedly saved a Con Law paper (Yoo) on it, dropped the key once, and now the key is not working. fortunately this person had backed up their work on their hard drive. don't be sorry, back up your work if you're using those damn boobie traps.
