Dear Grader #9,

So, let's just agree that, despite a passing grade from you, the last Torts essay I submitted was not my finest work. But was this comment truly necessary? Or in any way helpful?


I understand that you must grade hundreds upon hundreds of these essays for probably not a ton of compensation. And yeah, sometimes we essay writers may suck just a wee bit at expressing what we're trying to say. And that must get old. Really, really old.

And yet...this is why we go through this little exercise called "Bar Review." To get better at identifying the issues and stating the rules. Not to be told what dumbasses we are for getting a little sidetracked. Certainly not to endure your snide little comments.

In conclusion, I'd just like to say Fuck You Very Much!

Hugs and Kisses,


Ouch! What an ass!
Obviously your format is all wrong - you should have started out with the F you. That way the essay reader wouldn't have thought that you were going off on a tangent. A good strong F you is pretty darn concrete.
That's crazy! I haven't gotten anything quite that scathing, but have gotten some pretty interesting remarks along the "Uh, maybe you actually should try studying" lines.
You know - the thing that irks me most is that I was talking about proximate cause and joint and several liability. Both of which totally relate to torts and both of which were part of the model answer.
