Final 3L Exams: The Ultimate Roadblock to Graduation

Guest blog by Courtney Boykin, 3L at the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law

We’re down to our final 3L exams!!

3 weeks till graduation!!!

Anybody else counting?

I’m so ready to walk across the stage, get hooded, take a few pics with my family and friends and then…go home to take a nap. Ha!

Classes are starting to become a REAL “drag.” Sometimes I literally have to get up and leave the classroom for a second. It’s almost as if I get restless or anxious, especially during my evening classes…particularly the evening class that ends at 5:15. *facepalm*

Nonetheless, we’re so close, yet so far away. The only thing that’s blocking us from that monumental day is… our final EXAMS!

It’s our last hurrah with final exams and, as much as we may want to, we just can’t slack up. We have to go at these exams with the same tenacious spirit that we attacked all of the other exams that got us to this point. We have to dot every “i” and cross every “t.” How terrible would it be to get this close to the finish line and trip up on something as “small” as a final exam?

That being said, FINISH STRONG! Keep going, graduation is just around the river bend!! Then it’ll be the big kahuna…the bar exam, but we’ll just cross that bridge when we get there!
