I handed in my LW assignment two days ago. But as I reviewed my assignment today, I figured out that there was one sentence(it was citing a non-legal secondary source) that I forgot to cite (This sentence and the sentence next to it were citing the same source... i cited the second one but forgot to cite the first one; both sentences were from a source that I had already fully cited earlier in the paragraph).... Technically, it was not even that I forgot to cite, but I mis-used a "." when it should be ":"(so that there should just be one sentence instead of two)

I was planning on transferring but upon discovering the mistake in my LW assignment I totally freaked out. As my prof blind grades, I don't even know if I should let her know/send her a new brief. I am worried about any possible disciplinary actions, but also about whether this would result in a reduction in my grade. What should I do? Would this mistake ruin my prospective of transfer?

Any advice appreciated. And sorry for being confusing... I am freaked out and cannot think straight at the moment.


I really hope this is a joke and have to believe it is. No one, not even law students, are this neurotic.

Will probably report this post to mods so that they find out OP's identity and report him/her to the proper authorities. Chin up, though - maybe you'll get time off for good behavior (IF you don't do something like this again!).

Enjoy your A paper if this is what is bothering you.

You will likely be forced-transferred to a TTT. Sorry, bud.

You'll be fine, OP. And you're neurotic enough to make an excellent transfer

I'd submit a revised paper to the LW professor, along with a cover letter explaining what happened. To show that you're serious about not plagiarizing again, make sure to put a citation after every single word in your letter.
