Hey, us English Majors are very protective of our work.

Shouldn't it be "We English Majors?"


Ha.  . . .Ha . . . .

Here's an idea:

When you actually have taken a SINGLE law school course, then come back on the boards and correct me. Until then, go back to your "Planet 1L" and "Getting to Maybe"

I'm sorry, was I incorrect?  If so, please educate me.  I'm always open to criticism - you know, the kind where someone points out a flaw in your work, rather than assuming that you must be wrong because of your age.

I can also take a joke.  I suggest you learn to do the same.

Why would you feel guilty? They aren't your girlfriend, don't treat them like one.

I know, I know, but my Firm has been through a lot of bad situations with other interns, its really gotten its feelings and AMLaw ratings hurt. I want to prove that I'm not just "that kinda guy" that will just love'em and leave'em.

Never put your heart into it.  They'd screw you if it were were economically expedient.

Titcr.  I was feeling kinda guilty when I left my previous job for law school, than I realised that they would drop me in a heartbeat if it was in their best interest.
