I was (and am) so unused to all those writing conventions: rigid rules, no original ideas .... no extra words. I added a paragraph or two, thinking that would ease the transition between different ideas - and my professor said that was redundant and I should "move on". I thought of digging deeper into some ideas to give my discussion more "depth" and she said, "don't labor". be concise and to the point, and move on.
You haven't met many lawyers, have you?

yup I have a good lawyer friend (she's in her late 50s) and her tone has always been curt in her emails. If I had not known her for some time I would have thought she's very unfriendly.

If you get the assignment before you go on holiday, do it while on holiday and not during school. I now need to get me to believe this.
