My professor called and told my firm I confused hyphens with N dashes. I got a voicemail that said "Desert Fox, you're done here." They didn't ask for my stipend back, but they canceled my THEMIS account.

You automatically get bumped up a class year in salary and bonus. It's just compensation for the nasty case of herpes you're going to get.

In all seriousness, Will it be detrimental to go to SA events during the summer with a summer whom I am dating?

Any sort of emotional attachment to another human being is frowned upon

Luckily for you SA's are only considered demi-humans at best so you should be ok

I take it as 100% fact. Misuse of en dashes and hyphens is a very serious problem in big law.

I've only heard of it happening for serious crimes and for being unable to sit for the bar (for instance if your state requires you to pass the MPRE before you take the bar exam, and you wait until March of 3L to take the MPRE, and then fail). That example isn't applicable to NY though, and DC generally firms let you take any bar.

Serious crimes, serious academic misconduct (caught plagiarizing a paper/cheating on an exam), actually failing a law school class or otherwise not graduating. That's all I can think of. Failing the MPRE or otherwise being ineligible to sit probably isn't enough, since nearly all firms have a two-strikes policy on failing the bar (fail once, you're fine, fail twice, you're fired), though obviously the situation reflects poorly on you and leaves you starting out in a hole.

Previous anon here. The MPRE failure was a friend of a friend, so obviously I have no idea whether it's true or not. Even though most firms let you fail once, I think being unable to sit for the bar at all would look far worse.

Also, another way to have an offer rescinded: http://blogs.wsj.com/law/2007/05/03/law ... -director/
