Lucky Number 7?

Fall's first final for me is today in just a couple of hours. Will this be a lucky day? I'm definitely hoping so because the only way I'm going to perform decently on this exam is with lots of luck. Funny thing about 3L, at least for me: Instead of getting better at studying, I seem to have forgotten how.

One thing about finals time at GW I've always found a little funny is that they don't tell you where your final is going to be until an hour before the exam. The way they communicate this to you is via a chalkboard in one of the hallways at the school. That's right, a chalkboard. Whenever I look at this chalkboard I can't help thinking how easy it would be to screw things up by changing a number or two on the board. I would never do that, of course, but in a school that so obviously doesn't trust its students when it comes to finals (witness the requirement that we use the awful Extegrity exam4™ exam software write exams), this use of the chalkboard always strikes me as a laughable security lapse.

Perhaps I'm just easily entertained in the giddy moments before I sit down to a final. Ya think?

Whatever the case, to anyone reading this who is also facing finals in the next couple of weeks: Good luck and godspeed! And remember: No matter what happens, you get to start all over again in January!

Just another GW 1L...we were talking about how ridiculous the chalkboard was today. It is clearly the most retarded thing done by the school.

Dave!: Am I really that transparent?

Anonymous: Oh surely we can think of something even more ridiculous that GW does, don't you think?

Given the technology the school has and the ability to fix this problem quickly and easily...I think it has to be the most retarded. Granted, I think there are plenty of other retarded problems with the school (i.e., never enough space for people to study/eat lunch) but this one, given the fact that the school could easily fix the situation, has to be the worst.
