Mid-terms in law school?

Also, half of that stuff is not necessary.

Most likely a Cooley student wrote it, they have those there

L.L.M. Board / Re: Applying to an LLM with a Misdemeanor

LOTS of JD students have felonies who later get licensed just fine as well. There is no rule against convictions being allowed as students. Some states may not let you get licensed in their state, but you can get the degree all the same, there are no ABA rules against it for the JD or the LLM (even if you Charles Manson in theory)

consider military, you can enlist as a paralegal as an officer in JAG even with just undergrad

Depends on the school, I knew guys with felonies so factor that in.

W beats F any day of the week

Its the GPA that matters. If your school makes the W into an Incomplete and that becomes adverse to GPA, freak out. If not, don't sweat it.

Socratic Method / Re: Accidentally Slurred in Class

I had professors cuss in class a little strange the professor took it up to the Dean. Perhaps it was a student that said something, which is why the Dean is involved, but odds are once he/she hears all you said was bulls**t in class they will say it is unprofessional to use profanity in class you need to use your words carefully as a lawyer, etc .

In the real world people cuss all the time it is not good, but it happens.

I am sure you will be fine bulls**t is not even that bad of word, basically you should be fine if you just apologize and say it won't happen again.
I'm sure OP will be fine as long as he plays it cool and doesn't get all "this meeting is bull too!" with the Dean.
But the "Real World" doesn't matter. Do it in court and even worse can happen.

Public school, doubt they can do much unless it was directed at someone and somehow constitutes harassment, etc.

Private school...well, if this is a religious affiliated school they might take it more seriously. Otherwise, it seems excessive, but perhaps the school has a thing against swearing in class.

I am pretty sure at any law school/college they can say "stop swearing" otherwise people would be in class all day going "its f-ing A dawg, its mother f-ing answer A!"
