Is being an a-hole a prerequisite to being a law student? If so, I'm screwed.

It's not a diary. Law journals and law reviews are academic publications. You either grade on or have to compete in a writing competition to "make" journal or LR, and then you get the privilege of working your ass off 2L year writing your own academic paper while cite checking and editing the articles your journal or LR has chose to publish in the upcoming volumes.
Yes, I know that, thanks. I'm talking about something else, but I guess no one knows.
I don't think my school took this into consideration. I never even thought about it. I got pregnant at 19 and had son when I was 20. I started at a community college when he was 7 months old. I didn't go regularly - I got married, had my daughter, got divorced. It took me six years to get a 2 year associate's degree. Then I went to a state school and got my bachelor's in 2 years (I'm graduating next week).
Anyway, that's probably too much information, but I never even thought that they would question how long it took me to graduate. I only applied to one school and was accepted, so I don't think it mattered.
IMHO, messing up your UGPA would be worse than taking one semester off.
Grammar is grammar. It doesn't change with the course of study.
There are a lot of books on grammar: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=grammar&x=0&y=0

I think it's actually 3 hours outside of class for every credit hour you're registered for. So, a load of 15 credit hours would be 45 hours of study time.
You have some very basic questions. I would suggest reading Law School Confidential.

It's funny how Americans like me so easily forget we're not the only native-English speakers on the planet.
American = ethnocentric & xenophobic
