Crim Law Meeting

I met with my Crim Law prof about my finals - two weeks ago, I think. Crim Law was my lowest grade by a significant amount, so I wanted to see what happened. What happened was that I listened to him when he said that he didn't want to see a lot of "data dumping." When he went over my test, he kept telling me I didn't do this or didn't do that. Finally I said that I got a lower grade on this test than on all my others because of his data dump comment. I knew all the stupid definitions, I just used them judiciously because of what he had said. Next time I'll remember to ignore that.

Sorry about my lack of posting. Two jobs and trying to fit in two jobs with writing a summary judgment - stress of trying not to make the "mistakes" I felt like I made last semester....

Stressed, worn down...not even reading blogs right now. I miss you all, a lot.

That's frustrating. It's one grade, though -- you'll be okay. Don't let law school stress you out too much.

Rule Number 1: Professors effing lie.

Also, I am too busy to read blogs too -- I owuld read if blogrolling worked -- then i'd see who updated and just check theirs. as i have to check manually, its getting harder to squeeze in the time.

Miss oyu too

We all have this one class that sinks us.
No worries though. Do well in your other classes and show them that it is just a fluke.

Criminal Law was also my worst grade, first year. I don't want to do anything remotely Crim Law related, so it hasn't hurt. For what it's worth. :)

W didn't effing lie. He didn't want to see *only* data dump. So it was okay to data dump on the exam, but with the addition of analysis. - da stcl troll.

Dearest Anonymous Troll,

I didn't say he lied. I didn't say he fucking lied, either. I said I misconstrued what he said, altered my test taking stategy and because of it, got a lower grade.

Back off.
