    The 3-day, 15-hour bar begins exam tomorrow and trying to study any more seems futile. I've been on fightmusic.com listening to fight songs and cheers. If you have any inspirational video, audio, or I guess text links let me know.

    Going to youtube for some My Cousin Vinny Clips now.

    You don't need fight songs and inspiration. You need to get away from the studying and relax a bit.
    You know all you're going to know. You know you're going to do well.
    You don't need to get fired up, you need to get rested, calmed down and confident.
    You need to get yourself through the next three days handling the stress as best as possible.

    And never foerget, when it's done, you can begin drinking very heavily

    I'm kinda partial to this Presidential speech from Independence Day.

    But I agree with spnited. At this point, you have to trust your stuff and throw your best fastball.

    here's my shot at inspiration. i took the bar exam three years ago and it was a miserable summer but i passed on my first try. you have done everything possible to be prepared for this moment. you will pass. the only people who fail are those who didn't adequately prepare, either because they didn't do what barbri told them or because they attended an unaccredited law school (in which case you're doomed). you will pass and move on with your life, whether as a lawyer or whatever else you choose to do. you will pass. oh, and as spnited says, the drinking heavily at the end will be worth it.
