Just popping in to say hi! I want to shout about this all over LSD to all those people who thought I'd never make it in law school because of my LSAT. Instead, I thought it would be better to share with supportive folks.

I kicked but last semester. Finished the year in the top 1/3. I'll be on the Business and Tax Law Journal next year. And I'm getting published with my judge three times!

Haven't read the rest of the thread. Hope everyone did well last year and is having a great summer.

Hey girl! It's so good to hear from you. We're proud of you!!! ;D ;D ;D

btw, Business and Tax, huh? Better you than me. ;)

I'm still at work and my brain is fried....can someone remind me what I should say in parentheticals if I change a few of the words in a quoted sentence? ???

What style are you using?

Bluebooking

sorry for the late response, but don't you mean brackets [ ] instead of parentheticals ( ) for changing words in a quote?

Bluebook Rule 5.2(a)  (and yes I have it in front of me folks)

Thanks Sands, but let me be more clear.  It's a quote (not a block quote) that has brackets around a few words.  The brackets appear in the original decision.  Do I need to make any reference at the end of the quote indicating that the brackets appear in the original, and it's not our alteration?

Ah!  Yes, Rule 5.2(d)   After the quote you put in the parenthetical (alteration in original)
