Did you have a particularly misspent youth? Were you intimately familiar with the undersides of tables thanks to all the times you passed out on the floor underneath them? Did you think nothing of climbing in the car after you’d tossed back…and tossed up… a 12-pack of Natty Light? Did you round off this series of poor life choices by choosing to go go law school? Could you use an extra $1,000? Then this “admit you were a big old underage drunk driver” scholarship is for you, you lucky devil.
Yes, somewhere out there is an attorney who will throw you $1,000 for admitting you drove drunk when you were under 21, because somehow that will…make people think twice about driving drunk.
I’m offering a $1,000 scholarship to students who are willing to admit their buzzed driving habit.
I’ve represented dozens of young people who’ve made the terrible choice of driving under the influence.
These are rarely bad people. They are just people who were never honest with themselves regarding their buzzed driving habit. Time and again I hear the same thing:
“I only had a few drinks.”
Every time I can’t help but think that if more young people were forced to face their buzzed driving habit and admit to themselves that it was a real problem, that they could have put an end to it, and avoided the devastating consequences of driving under the influence.
Yes, because nothing says “don’t drink and drive” like “here is a pile of money for owning up to drinking and driving.”
If you still want to grab at this particular brass ring (and why wouldn’t you?) head on over and fill out the not terribly demanding application form. It’ll be the easiest essay you ever wrote.
Please submit a separate document containing your admission to, at some point, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Please include a detailed account of your drunk driving mistakes, and the concrete steps that you plan to take to ensure that you will not make the same mistake again.
Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! Just make sure your law school doesn’t have any sort of morals code before you engage in this genius plan.
