@Rubies: I’m not a lawyer bee but I can relate! I am completely overwhelmed with the amount of work I need to do before the end of the semester. I’m nervous about final exams and I’m scared of flunking out of school. This semester is actually better than last, when I failed my first class ever, but I’m still terrified. If I fail any more classes, it’ll totally throw off my graduation timeline, which would be bad all around. 

Can you jot down a timeline/schedule of everything you need to do? Is there anything you can work on during non-traditional study times? 

Hang in there, the semester is almost over!

@Rubies: Hang in there! It happens to all of us at some point 

Do you care about being published? Seriously, unless you have your heart set on publication b/c you want to go into academia or have a a decent shot at clerking, slack off a little on the note [also, that is a TERRIBLE deadline to have, I’m sorry!].  Clinic stuff is important, since that work is for actual people; plus those profs/supervisors can be good recommenders. 

See if any 3Ls have outlines you can use/borrow/etc.  Try to get sleep. It’ll all be over soon!

You can do it, girl! Just remember that because it’s curved, it may not be horrible. If everyone misses something or isn’t prepped, you’re all back to level again so you may not be as far behind as you think. Just plot out what you need to get done between now and each final, and literally write out your schedule to the hour. And make sure to get your sleep, you’ll be doing more harm than good cutting out your normal amount of sleep. *hugs*

You will make it, and you’ll be ok. Ask for some 3L outlines, focus more on each particular final as that one gets closer, and remember that you have the 3 following semesters to boost yourself if you’re not happy with this semester’s outcome.

You’lll be OK.  Rank isn’t everything (easier said on the other side, I know, but it’s true). Everyone thinks Fed Tax is the devil. Just hang in there through winter break.
