Day one down. Day two looms large.
The essay day, today. Seven fact patterns. One brief based on procedural facts, four witness testimonies and sundry other details, backed up by two laws, one rule of criminal procedure, and two appellate cases. I felt comfortable writing about the subject matter, which comfort unfortunately led me to dawdle and write overlong on that first essay. Then, 23 other separate essay questions of varying detail and subject matter. I was probably too verbose on the pretermitted spouse and forced share issue, and I hope I was verbose enough on "he'll lose because it's really hard to ask for a do-over," but that was really what I wanted to say.
In general, I feel pretty good.
Tomorrow, 200 multiple choice questions over six hours. More on that later.
Thanks for all the good thoughts, everyone. And thanks to all the people who either A) thought I'd have enough time to check my e-mail this morning, or B) thought that I was done the bar exam already. You're all wrong, but I appreciate you anyway.
