The Finals, The Finals

Gee, that was not fun. Forget what I said about finals being overhyped. Well, don't forget it, just qualify it. They're overhyped if you followed and understood things fairly well during the semester, which is like saying they're easy when you know what you're doing, which is like saying nothing, so nevermind. Forget it. I know nothing. Nuteeng! Ok, I know that multiple choice questions are no longer my friends. So much for the edumacated guessing. It works fine if you've edumacated yourself ahead of time; otherwise, those questions can kill you. And evidence is going to be all multiple choice. Let the mindgames begin! Now, after three finals in less than a week, I'm getting a little weary of the process. The last one is tomorrow. If you have any secrets for remembering and organizing all the rules of evidence in your head, now is the time to share!

What do you make out of the Professor's last minute confrontation clause class? I was in apathy mode and zoned out during the last class.

Help! Black letter?

Follow the chalk line?

Yeah, what rocketdog said. Sadly, I missed the last class so I'm just going to have to rely on the last few pages in the supplement for my knowledge of the confrontation clause. Any secrets or tips you want to share?

It's all about Crawford which apparently will throw Hearsay out the window entirely if some law professor from Michigan has his way. Anywho - I grouped the exceptions in like categories (exited utterence / present sense impression) and then ordered them from easiest to get in (party opponent admission) to hardest (business records). But we had open book so that was nice. Fuck if I know how to tell the difference btwn a 104a and a 104b determination of preliminary or intermediate fact of consequence.

Crawford good for criminal defendants. Crawford, TX bad place to have a president.

Undercover Classmate here.

On the hard ones since it is multiple choice, I am going to look for the underlying rationale of reliability versus the D's ability to cross... flip a coin and then pick an answer.

Other than that, I am sticking to the basics.

Hey UC: Do you have any clue how many questions are supposed to be on this test? I don't remember him ever saying and I'd like to try to figure out how time management will work. Help!
