Unsurprisingly, people are unhappy with the school and how it’s being run. I know, shocking that people are complaining about every little, last thing as if they’re entitled to have a perfectly smooth experience in every aspect and stage of their lives. However, the point of this post is not to air my distaste for whiny little bitches (which is strong and a subject I never tire of). The point is to reflect on a few complaints and ponder some simple solutions while awaiting action from the administration.
The consensus seems to be that no one is happy with how our tuition dollars are being spent. I suppose there’s weight to the argument that it’s our money, we should have a say in where it goes, but c’mon kids. Let’s get real. You will have very little control over where your money goes for the rest of your life. Everyone knows half your paycheck goes to various government agencies, plans, programs, etc. Pretty soon, the rest is gone as well. For example, the City of Boston has sucked up almost, every last bit of disposable income I managed to scrape together because apparently it’s now cool to ticket at 3a.m. The rest has gone towards new tires- thanks Comm. Ave. Anyway, most of your money will go towards things other than a Wii…for the rest of your life.Read more
“The Council”, the notoriously exclusive 1L clique, was recently shocked to learn that Council members Jessica Snide and Martin Blain had broken off their relationship and were currently negotiating a divorce settlement. Council matriarch Shannon Whalley told Eaglei that “although Martin and Jess weren’t actually married or engaged, there is nothing in the law that says they can’t sign and negotiate a divorce.” The recently broken up couple began splitting up their joint possessions late last week, including their pet miniature Schnauzer, “Rehnquist”, their lunch table in the Yellow Room, and their DVD collection including the Notebook, Tears of Endearment, and Kazaam. Negotiations came to a standstill yesterday when custody challenges were issued on their communal friends.Read more
Benjamin Crawford, local BCLS 1L in section 4, brought a breach of contract and unjust enrichment suit earlier this week against his classmate James Kohl. Crawford claims that Kohl and he had a longstanding contract to exchange notes from Contracts class when one of them missed class or just didn’t care enough to attend. When the pages of notes that Kohl sent to Crawford began to diminish in quality and then cease completely, Crawford became concerned. It was after Crawford saw his Contracts grade that he decided to bring suit against his classmate using all of the knowledge he failed to learn in Contracts class.Read more
Margaret Chandler, a local BCLS 2L, brought an action for forcible entry and detainer against her classmate Zoe Atwood for possessing her study carrel on the third floor of the Boston College Law Library. Chandler claims that Atwood has been occupying her study carrel for some weeks now, despite the orange notice posted on her study carrel identifying it as the property of Ms. Chandler. In response to Chandler’s request for declaratory judgment and injunctive relief, Atwood presented a defense of adverse possession of the study carrelRead more
