No, you're not an asshole because you work hard and succeeded. You're an asshole because you accepted two offers and don't see any problem with that. You're an asshole because you have a shitty attitude that you worked hard and are entitled to both offers and damn everyone else who may be affected by your actions. And for those saying who cares about the law firms the answer is no one. What we (I) care about is the law student, your peer, who didn't get the offer because you were holding both.

We all make mistakes and had you come here and said "shit I screwed up I feel bad what do I do?" you would have been rediculed to an extent but people would have moved passed it. But you still seem to think you did nothing wrong here, "I work hard ... therefore I'm an 'asshole'." No. You're an asshole because you're an asshole and the fact that you worked hard has nothing to do with it.

OP, you know I'm a big fan of your work, and I did enjoy this particular scenario, but I think it's time to draw this particular troll to a close.
