I'm hoping that you meant that in a sarcastic way. For the sake of humanity man, please tell me you were kidding!
one who asks questions is foolish for five minutes, one who doesn't is foolish forever
Hopefully she knows the difference between collage and college...
I'd like to know how she got into law school, and also how she's managing to stay in law school.
It doesn't mean you're a failure at life but it can make school difficult. Most of my professors in college and grad school would stop reading a paper if they found more than three spelling or grammar mistakes in that paper. Some would give it an automatic zero, some wouldn't grade it until errors were fixed. Learning to proofread and use language properly is an asset in higher education.
I am currently in law school myself, and most professors (not to mention student themselves) automatically dismiss a paper when it has more than say 5 mistakes. It makes them take you less seriously and hence you are judged on those standards - not really a good thing as you can imagine. Of course it's odd that the kid is asking such a basic question at her age, but at least she's asking! I hope she learns better. And honestly - for a moment there, I was just like wait, what? How?
