I was very fortunate when it came to the law review competition -- the two professors I am working for this summer agreed to "soft start" me until the competition was over, giving me plenty of time to do it (one of them was so enthusiastic, he still has yet to give me any work! Thanks, but I do feel like eating this summer.). But many of my friends were not so fortunate, and had to work full time while doing their write-on. And then there is this student.
I obviously hope everything turns out well for his or her family, and that nobody is hurt. Kind of puts everything else in perspective though, doesn't it?
