Being Professionally Responsible

The Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam, otherwise known as the MPRE, is this weekend. For those of you who may not know much about the test, it’s a 2-hour, 60-question multiple-choice exam that is administered by the National Conference of Bar Examiners 3 times each year. It’s also required for admission to the Bar in all […]

Finals, we meet again.

Now with nearly a year under my belt, I  admit I feel so much differently about finals. Firstly, the stress level is high but it is not crippling me or causing me to cry almost every other night. Secondly, after seeing so many things I did wrong, I corrected bad habits this semester so I […]

Collecting Advice

Last week I had my last corporations class, my last administrative law class, and the last day of my externship. At the end of each of my classes – like in years past – the professor took a moment to impart a little advice. Some of the advice was specific to law school exams but […]

Grades…dun, dun, dun!

Well, grades were posted this last week, and everyone I knew held their breaths while they refreshed their browser anxiously waiting to see that letter representation of their hard work. When I finally saw my grades, my heart skipped a few beats. I was disappointed. I did not know what to expect, but what I […]

Deal or No Deal

In life we all have to make choices. Sometimes there is only one option, and other times there are many. When it comes to final exams, choosing the study method that is most efficient for you personally can be the most important choice of all. If there is anything that can be learned from the […]

Everyone has their own way of remembering things. For some people it’s flashcards, for others it’s taking extensive notes, and for others it’s creating detailed outlines. If there’s one thing I’ve learned after a year of law school, it’s that there’s no best way to memorize the facts and law that may come in handy […]

How exams work

Post-finals debrief

I’ve heard it.  You’ve heard it.  Everyone’s heard it.  Law school is hard. And guess what….they’re right. So what makes law school so hard?  Personally, I think it’s the finals.  And, I think a lot of my classmates would agree. Sure, I took courses in undergrad and grad school that had a final exam or […]

Reviewing the Semester

          The first semester of law school has come to an end.  With its ending comes feelings of satisfaction, relief, and happiness.  Yet, there’s one feeling that I believe every 1L appreciates more than the rest.  A feeling that sums up everything that we put into our first semester in a […]

The Law School Workout

The Spartan Race comes to Boston starting tomorrow, and I am more than excited to be able to take part in the event.  Not only because it’s taking place inside Fenway Park (which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year), but also because it entails overcoming an intense obstacle course that pushes participants to their […]
