LOLCat English is the preferred style here in our courts. 

Just wait, some federal judge will actually write an opinion in LOLCATS english.

My civpro casebook has an opinion with a wayne's world theme.
It ends with, "The litigants should like, totally party on in state court"

Everyone,
Thank you so much for your comments and the pieces of advice. I was so upset that I needed an opportunity to vent. I feel better now and as someone said, it is just better to put this behind me especialy since I am commited to the school, and yes, I did decline the other schools before I got the award letter. However, I do feel like they could have handled it in a better fashion rather than sending me an impersonal email, especially since they had said they would call me back.
Also I want to say thank you to the person who taught me how to spell "because".
  The problem with your case is that you didn't really rely on the scholarship offer.

Yup.

Also, learn how to spell "because."  It will come in useful during law school  ;)

 WOW! That really helped me out a lot since I had no idea what the word even meant.

If you really turned down other scholarship offers and have proof of that you could argue the offer was binding on the school because you relied to your detrement.  They  might teach you this in  Contracts in a few weeks. On the other hand there is something to be said about picking your battles.

I have this vague memory of Wash U doing something similar last year.  Something to the effect of emailing every single person that had applied some information on their "scholarship" but then having to retract it.  That's probably not the 100% correct story, but it was something similar.

It sucks that they can't...I don't know...double-check these things before confusing and upsetting already frazzled law applicants.
