Alright here's the situation, on November 4, I have a college essay due. Normally this would be something I'd just laugh at and handle myself; however the catch is that this is not an assignment, but rather a test. The rule of the game is that on 11/4, we will be given 50 minutes to write an 1100 word essay; the facts that this is the first time I've done something like this, plus my professor is a real ball-buster, I have extremely restricted internet access, and I'm up to my neck in projects, are all starting to make me a bit disconcerted. English professionals, my question to you is how should I go about preparing, and what are some of the best ways to make a good essay; and political experts, the topic is "How Does the Supreme Court Decide Cases", how do I drag the information of this to 1100 words? None of you are obligated to help me, I thought I'd try to exhaust what few rescources I have. Thank you.
