Yes, I am brilliant.

Course evals from last semester came out today. For those of you who don't know, Northeastern doesn't give out "grades" like most schools do. They give out written evaluations. Which is cool because then you have a better idea of what your strengths and weaknesses are in the course instead of forever wondering what made the professor give you a B instead of an A.

Anyways, even with the unusual system, it's clear that overall I did quite well in my classes last semester. In Civil Procedure, I got an "outstanding," which is the best they give out. She also said that my exam was "well written." As did my Torts professor, who gave me a "very good." Although I wonder if perhaps he's more of a tough grader, he had nothing but positive things to say in the actual written evaluation. I got "good" in Property. I'm sure I could have done better had I 1) enjoyed the class or 2) if that wasn't possible, at least had a better professor. But, at least I passed, it's over with, I'm happy. I'm also happy that, overall, this is clearly another sign that I'm on the right path.

As for the classes I'm currently taking, they're still going well. I'm hoping Constitutional law will become more interesting, but I definitely like the professor so that balances it out. Crim is fun. We've been familiarizing ourselves with the interaction between the "bad act" (the actual crime) and the "state of mind" necessary to make it a crime. It's a very intricate relationship. As for Contracts...I like the subject a lot more than I thought I would. I still haven't decided what my favorite class is, I'd like to wait until we really get into the meat of the subject before I make that determination. We're still exploring a lot of the basic doctrine in all three classes so this isn't the time to be choosing favorites.

Aside from classes, I got an interview for a summer internship, so that's exciting. The interview itself is scheduled for next Friday. I generally do pretty well in interviews, so hopefully that luck will stay with me. I'll make sure to post something when I find out one way or another.

Well, that's it for now. Until next time!
