Terrific thread. In OP's defense, law school can really bring out the worst in people. I am shocked at some of the things I posted in the midst of my job search crisis.

Edit: Some law school professors are completely full of shit. My crim law professor told us at the end of the semester not to worry about our participation scores because participation was only going to be used to bump grades up, not down. Hello, McFly, anyone home? Ever heard of a forced curve? She was either incredibly stupid or willfully dishonest.

Almost happy?

You're right. Definitely happy.

I could see a lock, but this doesn't belong in the lounge.
