How are the students holding up? I have three finals but a decent amount of time to study. Won't be done til almost Xmas, though, which sucks considering we're hosting it this year.

How hard can a final for Alternative Dispute Resolutions be? That is the question of the hour, sportsfans. It could go one of several ways, but I just don't think it will be that bad. Immigration and Evidence will be much harder, I think. If the lawyers have any recollection of those finals to share, please PM me.

It's very moment to moment for me this semester, but I'm holding on and staying focused. I'm a laser, baby.

1 final down and I don't know how my teacher is averaging some extra credit. If she does it the way I would, I have an A in that class. I don't know if we do our math the same way.

I have 3 more finals. 2 I'm not worried about, 1 thats going to be awful. I'm still sane, not too stressed. yet.

im done.

i gave my students their last test on wed, then took my last one that night. it was way easier than expected. that could mean one of two things, either i did really well, or not so great.

I had some issues with procrastination with taking Humanities online, but it was so terribly easy, it was sad. I cut and pasted nearly every essay and got an A on each one. I finished with a 94.

My accounting final is Monday. Due to work changes, I'm debating on how many classes to take next semester.

I'm also changing degrees so I can stop commuting altogether. It's killing me.

My "easy" final in my "easy" class just knocked me down then kicked me in the kidneys. There was crap on there I had never even seen before. Mad

2 left, one that will without a doubt be one of the hardest exams I've ever taken Mad and one that I feel pretty confident will be okay. I chose to do this, right?

I'm told it gets easier after this semester. I hope they're right.

I'm in Life and Living 201. The exams are often and they are painfully hard sometimes. Lots of strange professors, here, too--a lot more A holes than I expected. I am not getting paid to be here, so it's like a work-study course. I often feel I'm barely passing.


Meaning: I am tickled for those of you in school!! Enjoy it to the fullest!! One day, maybe before my son has children, I'll get to go back too.

almost done is a semi-relative term....due to work demands, i've had to cut back to 1 class per term - which means even if things go as planned, I'll be at it until Spring of '07....

(though when you get as old as me, time begins to fly) Confused

Thanks!!! I'm settling in for a couple years I think, or until I get bored and need to do something else. Both jobs I am working right now are in the field, but two different settings, and I've got a couple other irons in the fire to fill up all that free time. Not being quite that old yet, I'm hoping it goes a little slower Wink Wink

I figure as long as I finish the PhD before I'm 50 I'll be happy.....

Finals ended for me last Friday. My profs have my grades posted already (they are due today at 4pm) and I have the inside information. I did very well for a semester where I had my head up my @$$ most of the time:

Spanish, Theories of Liability, Crim Law, Algebra: B

Systems Analysis, Civil Litigation: A-

My cumulative is now 3.56, down a bit from my last round, but I have made Dean's list, so it's all good. Given that my head wasn't 100% in the game, I'll take what I received.
