"The firm of Vinson & Elkins has a scholarship program for high school students who are interested in ‘pursuing a career in law.’
"Great! But take a look at these excerpts from the firm’s overview of the program.
The funds for each student are submitted directly to their school . . . .
In addition to the financial support, V&E provides each scholarship recipient mentors and a summer job opportunities.
Each recipient achieved a score of at least 1100 on the SAT, had a financial need, and provided the Foundation with their application . . . and two letters of recommendation from their high school teachers and/or counselors . . . .
"While the students’ English teachers are teaching them to avoid singular/plural disagreements, the firm is suggesting that those disagreements are OK."
