Exams
« on: December 10, 2009, 04:54:39 PM »
Is anyone else suffering through final exams this time of year? What exams do you have? I am in my third and final year of law school, and I have Federal Income Tax I tonight and Estate and Gift Tax tomorrow evening. Tax law, really? Have I become that boring?

Also, does anyone want to hire an inexperienced tax attorney in about a year?

Corporate finance in class final exam next weekend and we'll also get to pick up the take home final (well, download it from the web) for Operations Management.  Since the corp fin exam is on Saturday I will probably start studying on Thursday night in accordance with my just-in-time homework/studying methodology.

I finished all my exams for this semester. I am really looking forward to the break. I will be happy when I get my degree but since I only attend part time it may be another 5 years before I graduate. I wish I would have taken the 4 year plan when I was 18  :'(

I'm not taking any, but I'm giving some next week. Grading them is a LOT easier than taking them.

Well, I got a physics exam at 8 am on wednesday, and multivariable calculus at 6 pm on that same day... gonna be brutal. Then there are other exams. Can't wait to graduate, but it looks like retards at my previous college couldn't send my transcripts for three months over to where I'm transferring to, so I may even lose a whole darn semester. In any case, I should be able to get me double degree in about three years :) yaaay! And then it's on to continue my education.

Just wait until it's time to start studying for the bar exam. I took New York in 2006 and California in 2008, it is brutal.

I've got potions, transfiguration, herbology, and Defense Against the Dark Arts.  Currently reading the Harry Potter series to my son, and I have a hard time distinguishing between fantasy and reality.  :)

Good luck on your exams.

I'm so glad I never have to think about finals again.  I completed my J.D. last May and passed the MN bar over the summer.  No more school...ever.

Incidentally, I was one of the weirdos who was hoping for a tax question on the bar.   ???

I have a tax accounting final on Friday morning. just think you lawyer guys can at least give tax advice. I am much more worried about the cost accounting final on Thursday.
