dude ....why would i make this up?? unfortunately it is very much real. why do people on this forum question the authenticity of posts instead of focusing on the substantive quality of the question!!??? YES...1Ls were allowed to compete, YES.... what i said really happened. and YES, i posted this on the same day the brief was due, thursday. i see that i mispoke and said the brief was due Friday. but that's not the point. also, isn't one of the purposes of this forum venting??!! i sure saw many other posts that looked like venting!! i guess i was looking for someone to say "that's tough, sorry for your troubles." whatever man, u're a male private part. just wanted to tell u that.
