For a relaxing laugh, check out the advice of a OneL blogger at Top Ten Survival Rules for Law School. Her advice about exams:
4. Avoid classmates during finals: this has been the secret to my success. During finals I think I saw a handful of people in my section who were either 1) stressing out every day, 2) crying every day, 3) throwing up every day, or 4) a combination of the first three. It starts to wear on you. Your meals start to come from vending machines and the librarian starts to know your name. When it’s dark outside, you’re not sure if it’s day or night because you’ve been in the library for nearly 24 hours anyway. Don’t do this. As I said in Point 10, law school is a marathon, not a sprint. The final you have at the end of exam period is probably worth just as much as the first final. Pace yourself.
So please stop by the Charlotte Law Library today either in person (or virtually!) and let us help you find the resources you need.
Good luck and best wishes with exams!
