My Co-Confectionator Stole My Essay Topic - And I Had To Go To Law SchoolMy classmate stole my essay topic. And I had to go to some grad school!
It's not a great story, and my original idea was that he was going to use my information to get a better grade. But I hadn't anticipated this. And so now I've got two copies of the paper in hand, which is bad enough.
Grad school can be a tough year, for all of us. Especially, when you're facing a plagiarism charge on your first day of class. But I just couldn't resist the temptation of being able to write about my classmate stealing my essay topic.
The first day of class in my third year of law school, my classmates and I were talking about getting out of legal trouble. I'd like to say that I was the only one worried about that.
The thing is, though, most of us were smart as Asian guy from Wisconsin. It's hard to picture anyone who wasn't, and we were all right-thinking at least, and so I suppose that was the issue. But we all had our reasons.
And then, before I knew it, my classmate was taken down in court for stealing my classmate's idea. And he'd be spending the next year in jail. Not exactly a life-changing event, I thought, but something that I'll never forget.
And that's when my heart sank, because my friend left his own letter of recommendation, and I was supposed to bring it with me. It was my mother's letter of recommendation, and it was supposed to explain to the Dean why I had to go to law school. But what did I do? I told him I was graduating, and I'd gotten my thesis accepted!
But this is what happens when you steal a classmate's idea: You get hauled into court for plagiarism. So this is my assignment: Write an essay based on my classmate's topic, and give me my thesis acceptance on the way. Please?
