...sometimes that specificity means STRICT grading!
I have no doubt that she'll be strict--I rather expect it.  I do hope she will be fair.  So far, I have no reason to think she will be otherwise, if my first returned assigments are any indication.  She didn't miss a thing--but I sure did.  :-[

Wow, you sure are on an even keel! could you send some patience my way? Obviously I am in dire need of it. ;)
Your post has calmed me down, somewhat!

Does anyone think Wednesday night's "interview" was a waste of time?  ??? It was no fault of the student serving to be interviewed. I thought several of the questions were stupid, "Are you a Mormon?" or "Are you going to pay the firm a big retainer?". Several people want to complain about the course, yet they acted like silly freshmen, not like law school students.

Sick of whining! >:(

On Monday someone asked the name of the VP and the age of the wife.

I had a difficult time getting anything out of the interview. :-\ The way I read the initial memo, we are supposed to determine if the agreement is a valid contract. There were few questions that addressed that issue. As for the comedians, Zanie's has open mike nights.

PT :-\
NSL is cool!

Maybe the Hokey Pokey really is what it's all about.

I guess the trivial parts of the information can be our "dicta" part!

On a scale of 1 to 10, how worried are you about the memo assignment? I can't decide how worried to be. I won't be able to write it until the weekend, and I guess I will know better then.

on that scale 6

I feel confident of my ability to write concisely and clearly.  I'll follow her paradigm to the letter.  I suspect she will pay much attention to whether we follow the paradigm, although I don't think the word paradigm applies.

And no, Susan, you did not hold back.  I don't know that I blame you.
