I will admit I used the wrong spelling of their. Starting a sentence with and is still bad english. Also "Well, you must go to one to;" wrong punctuation, oh and also to should be too.

IF you're paying for her law school education, you're getting suckered. I'm the daughter that wrote that post.1. I'm 3rd in my class.2. I'm on full tuition scholarship.3. What the scholarship doesn't cover I pay for myself.4. I was one of 15 people chosen out of over 100 for the school's Mock Trial team, which is a committment equal in hours and work to Journal. 5. So I think not enjoying Journal doesn't make me a bad person.What have you done lately?I'm sure you'll reply and just say I'm bragging. But anyone as judgmental, shortsighted and inflammatory as you should never be a lawyer either. Seems you're missing the basic humanity and openmindedness it takes to make an effective client advocate (evidenced by your negative 14 reputation rating...).

I've got to agree with my dad on this one. God help the legal system. 1. Just for the record, I'm not a poor writer at all. I won't go into details, because, well, that would be "bragging". I sincerely apologize for the double "about". I realize that one slip up while typing quickly on an internet discussion forum negates years of writing experience and I might as well quit law school now. 2. I was, in fact, not a paralegal. But I suppose my position as a legal secretary gives me even less credibility. It's just sooo passe that some people think they'd like to have some life and work experience before going to law school. They're all obviously underachievers and unworthy of a law license.3. I do go to a T4. I'll freely admit it because I'm not the least bit ashamed. I could have (easily) gotten into a T1 school, but applied only to this school, based on several factors (money, location, etc). I love my school, the atmosphere and the sense of community, and not least of all the fact that I don't have to attend school with any of the morons who populate this Board thinking they're the sh*t even though they're dead last in their precious T1 class.Suffice it to say I'm done with this website. Many people here don't deserve to be lawyers, and God have mercy on your clients. The way people treat each other here is worse than being in a sorority was.[/quoteI've said it before and I will say it again. If I were judged based on my mesage board posts, I wouldnt be allowed to take the LSAT. As it happens, though, I just booked Legal Writing. Why? Because I pay far more attention to my writing IRL than I do on message boards. As I am sure MistyCat does. I don't put forth nearly a fraction of the effort on a stupid message board that I do in real life on a memo. Yes I know IRL my spelling and grammar sucks, which is why I live by the Redbook. In no way does Mistycats messages here relfect how she writes and "performs" in real life.
