Last Class Ever

Thursday was my last class ever of law school. I need to take two finals and finish my r&w and I will be done. My finals are Monday and Thursday of next week so I’ll be done with those in April. One of my finals is in a pass/fail class and I already have enough points to pass even if I get a 0 on the final. No pressure there. My other final I do need to do well on but with it being my only final to study for that won’t be a problem.

Finishing my r&w is going to be my biggest challenge. I need to write 30 pages and I have about 1 now. I’ve done all the research and have lots of notes but I keep finding ways to procrastinate on the actual writing. I have until 3 weeks after finals to finish. Since I’m leaving on my hike May 11 though I really need to have it done by then. This is doable but I need to put my nose to the grindstone these next couple of weeks.

April is My Last Month of Law School

I checked out my final exam schedule earlier this week and received a pleasant surprise.  Our final exam schedule runs from April 27-May 8 but both of my final exams are in April.  That means next month is my last month of law school.   My graduation isn’t until May 9 and I don’t leave for my hike until May 11 so I’ll have plenty of free time at the beginning of May.  I do still have to finish my R&W but I should be close to finishing by then.

Law School is Over for the Semester

I had a final Monday and another final Wednesday and that was it for the semester. I have to do a little work for my clinic but I am basically done until next semester starts. I wish I could say that I’m confident that I did well enough on my tests to stay in law school. I feel okay about one of them but I’m worried about the other one. I don’t have a high enough GPA to bomb on a final and still maintain the minimum GPA for law school. It has always been very difficult for me to gauge how well or poorly I performed on a law school final. I’m hoping that I did good enough on the final but all I can do now is wait. Unfortunately, I will probably be waiting for a while. Based on my past experience I probably won’t receive my grades until after the next semester starts.

On a positive note, if I do manage to stay in school my next semester will be easy. I only have 9 credits and they are all pass/fail. I will have to do my 30 page R&W and I’ll have to actually appear in court for my clinic. Those are both things I’m dreading so next semester won’t entirely be a cakewalk but compared to my other semesters it will be pretty easy.
