I finished the hardest exam of my life about four hours ago and have been trying to recover from the shock of it ever since. I was about halfway through the seventy five short answer questions when I threw my pencil to the floor (frightening the proctor) and seriously considered packing up and quitting law school altogether, then and there. Bewilderment is not the reaction you're aiming for on a final exam. My friend commented, "Time was called and I looked around the room to see if I was the only person who had been completely lost for three hours and couldn't help but feel relief when I saw how stunned everyone else was. It looked like a room full of people suffering from PTSD." Exactly. There are certainly worse things in life than a really, really difficult law school exam, but right now I'm feeling a little defeated. And to think, I so enjoyed corporations law before today.
