Done.

What a year. I've never done anything that's quite like 1L.

Yeah, this journal comp is rough. "Five pages" doesn't sound like a lot until you realize that the footnotes will be longer than the discussion.

Pretty sure I just ended my law career today by turning in an absolute dog shit con law exam. I studied hard and thought I knew the material but the exam felt like it was written in a foreign language. Pretty sure I bombed, so now im basically praying for at least a B.

But now that I’m officially done with 1L I can confidently say that law school has been the most demoralizing, ostracizing experience of my life. I have never felt more stressed or alone in my entire life.

That said, it’ll be a nice change to be working this summer in a office with regular 9-5 hours and relatively low expectations.

hard part's over, and in a couple weeks you'll be able to look back and laugh. finish out exams, grab some drinks, and enjoy your summer!

This thread keeps driving home how unusually early a schedule W&L has. I've been at my internship for a week (after a week off) and I'll be turning in my write-on materials tomorrow.

I posted on the law review thread -- but I'll post here. Any clue how to find note proposal ideas? I have some ideas but not sure what it is supposed to be exactly.

I'm so glad we did write-on over spring break. It was sadistic then, but I just feel better about it now because I was able to take off from work then and I'm currently in a week of work hell because I couldn't just take off right after finals this semester. That would have made write-on suck.

Also, I got accepted to our Business Law Review, so the effort was worth it. You guys doing write-on can make it!
