Dave says: "Apparently, Elle aced her LSAT, and applied to Harvard Law. Whatever, I guess I’ll buy it. But that video essay she sent to the Harvard admissions board?! Insane. If you go into this movie expecting an accurate depiction of law school, legal internships, or courtroom procedure, you’ll be pretty disappointed. I hated it when I first saw it, and I hate it more now that I’ve experienced some of this."
