It is official: 24 hour finals are truly terrible things.
It is not that the exam itself “takes” 24 hour. There are not 1400 short answer questions or anything. It is just that it is hard and so you spend the whole 24 hours second-guessing the answer you put down because it does not feel like enough.
From start to finish, I took 21 hours but that does include 9 hours of sleep.
But it is finished and I am halfway through 3L year!
Sort of. I kid you not, just as I clicked “upload” on my exam I got an e-mail from the professor I TA for asking where I was at with grading the students’ finals because they are due ASAP.
No rest for the wicked.
