It's over! Yay! I am not sure I passed, but I'm also not sure I failed, so things could be worse. I have to say, the questions on the state portion were all sorts of random. We had a ConLaw question about whether a school's mandatory community service requirement amounted to involuntary servitude, a professional conduct question covering issues that were nowhere in the code of professional conduct (thank heavens for my prof. responsibility course in law school!), a crim question about a crime that's not even recognized at common law and appears nowhere in my preparation materials, and a civ pro question that, unless I missed something, was entirely about computation of time when a deadline is less than seven days away. Bizzare.

The con law question, in particular, got me, maybe because it's the last essay I wrote and I was cranky because my hand was cramping. I really wanted to write that the framers of the 13th amendment would probably be spinning in their graves if their work was being used to justify the complaints of a spoiled teenager who didn't want to do his homework. I refrained, since I don't think "surly" is really one of the attributes NC is looking for in it's attorneys. Just a guess.

Anyway, it's over, and for that I am grateful. I just need to pass the MPRE, and I'm home free until the first week in April, when we Find Out.

Wish me luck.
