Game Over

I’ve been officially done with all things law school this past week. It’s an interesting feeling because for the first time in a LONG time, I have no outlining, reading, papers or studying to do. I’ve been playing a lot of video games because all my friends have exams or papers to turn in (exams finish in exactly one week). Little by little, however, I’ve been seeing Facebook statuses from people proclaiming how they’re done with law school. Eventually everyone will be done!

Next week, there is nothing. The week after that the Student Government Association (SGA) has planned a lot of activities for 3Ls (think senior week). Among the activities are several bar nights, go-karting, a clam bake, wine-tasting, paintball and a tour of Fenway Park. In other words, there will be plenty of fun stuff to do.

At the end of our “senior week” is graduation. Our commencement speaker is Denny Chin, a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. On that day, law school will be officially over. Unfortunately, the bar exam course I’m taking starts a day or two after graduation. More on that later in the summer. Right now it’s time to enjoy the end of classes and exams!
