Current Law Students / Re: NOT FAIR and I'm pissed!!!

You may personally find it more 'honorable' to face up to the other person, but an anonymous contact is perfectly adequate. 

I completely agree with that!  I think contacting the person, and letting her know that what you think she did is not right anonymously is perfectly fine.  That way, you'll be really helping her and not just looking out for your self interest.

Jesus Christ, you'd think this girl kills puppies from reading some of those posts. Things like that happen all the time in school and in the professional world. Life ain't fair, and sometimes you just have to let the little things slide.

Ofcourse, they do.  That's why I'm so upset, when I wrote my previous post.  I have encountered this before in various situations, I expect it, and (unfortunately) I have to adjust to it by being more mean and conniving than I would ever want to be.  This is unfortunate though, which is why I may sound so upset.  Another thing that really upsets me is that this kind of "back stabbing" is really predominant in American culture.  I've been living here for a long time, I love this county, and this really makes me sad.  I perfectly know (now) that this is the inexcapable reality, but it still makes me sad.  I think it's not right, so that's why I wrote what I did.  It's only my personal opinion.  Feel free to disagree.

Hey, I'll be applying to law school this Fall, so it seems just about time!

Here's my honest opinion:  I think that e-mailing your professor about this fellow student who had smaller margins is a stab in the back and wrong from a moral point of view.  Sure, she/he might have done a small wrong, but wouldn't you be doing another wrong by telling on your fellow classmate?  And do you really need to do this, when the professor will see the margins himself/herself and notice it, when it's so obvious?  You're so upset, yet wouldn't you be lowering yourself to their level if you acted this way?
Here's what I think you should do: send the anonymous e-mail to the person who you think cheated.  I am sure that after that e-mail, he/she will feel very bad, realize that it was obvious that the margins were made too small, and will never do it again.

Sorry, but I really have no respect for people who, when they have a problem with someone, don't have the courage to confront that person face to face (because they either don't have the guts or because they worry so much about their own skin) and instead try to bring that person down behind their back through tattle-tailing and back stabbing.  If you have a problem with a person, sure, go ahead, tell on them, but have the courage and dignity to confront them yourself first and be honest.  If you can't handle that, maybe you should just keep quiet and do your own thing.

Thanks everyone for the information and insightful ideas.  From reading some other threads I was really beginning to expect my future classmates to steal and hide library books and give out false information now and then to keep their competitors mislead.  I see now that this is most likely not going to be the case, for which I'm grateful.

Please, do share more about your ideas and/or experiences on this matter.  I know that law schools vary a lot from one to another, so hearing the opinions of a bigger variety of people can only be more informative for us, the pre-law students.

Thanks everyone!  ;)

Current Law Students / Re: What was the hardest thing about your 1L?

It just took a little while to develop a plan for effectively learning the material and getting ready for the exams.  2nd year just feels less daughting because I am confident in what methodology works for me.

Rupunzuel, would you recommend any kind of prepping for first year of law school?  I've read a lot about this on various posts, but I'm interested to hear the opinion of someone who says that it was by the time of 2L that they figured out how to do things.  Do you think that if you did some prepping beforehand you could have been more prepared?

Thank you, Zeus!  Your advice is very insightful as well, I think.
