The half-truths, omissions, and outright lies about floating through law school.

It's that time of year...

Actual VERBATIM e-mail to cross my in box this morning. Only the names have been taken out for obvious purposes.

"Hey ALS,

Are you gonna be in newyork this summer? If so we should defanitely hang out! I am working at [real shitty firm] and yeah I haven't seen ya in a wahile.

So we got the exam on Wed....would you mind sending me your outline for [pick a class, it matters not which]? I am a little behind and you know with me breaking up with Anonymous now Ex-Boyfriend and all...I kinda stopped going... Since I was not in class, the notes that I got are a little unclear.

I can repay you with *favors*

xoxo,

Is she offering sex or something of that nature for notes and an outline? Interesting.
I just asked someone for notes and they just emailed them to me. It was much easier, simpler, safer and cleaner.
Is her grammar and spelling really that bad? Geez, how'd she get the job at a law firm? Oh never mind, I suppose it involved *favors*...

This is SOP for most girls. Interestingly, they are the first ones to explain that they are smarter b/c of the school they went to.

She probably has VD.

Damn, why did I not take antitrust! I love a good skank.

When fuckers ask me for my outline I am half tempted to do a global find and replace for a key term before I send it over--like "de novo review" for "review only for abuse of discretion."

I think she was doing what girls usually do: dangling the possibility of sex in front of me.

"This is SOP for most girls. Interestingly, they are the first ones to explain that they are smarter b/c of the school they went to."

Indeed....

"When fuckers ask me for my outline I am half tempted to do a global find and replace for a key term before I send it over--like "de novo review" for "review only for abuse of discretion.""

How does one politely reject absurd outline requests?

there are several possible responses that I've found to be effective to the outline request which depend on one of two situations...

1 - (if they're your friend or someone you'd like to maintain a friendly relationship with) You give it to them..or tell them that yours isn't quite done & turn it back on them and ask for any notes or information they have for the class - you don't really have to look at it - but then they think you're even more clueless then they are and they leave you be.

or

2 - (Someone you couldn't care less about) Tell them no - say you've worked long and hard on your outline & while you empathize with their predicament - its really not your problem & you don't feel comfortable allowing him/her to utilize the outline that you've developed when she didn't follow through on her responsibility to attend class.

But really I wouldn't worry about it too much, personally I share everything I have/get because it doesn't hurt me if they have the same outline - If I understand it better (which I will since I attended class & developed the outline) then I'll still walk away with a higher grade.

By the way - nice blog
