entry on Albie Manzo, he flunked out of the part-time program at SeTTTTon Hall School of Law. I thought that chapter was done in his life, and sure enough, it isn't. I think his mom encouraged him to fight the fight and become a "successful attorney" to spite them. So, what does Albie do? He hires an attorney and consults about his rights. Apparently, Albie was put on academic probation after first semester. He met with one of the Deans. Albie told the Dean about his learning disability. The Dean said that he thought SeTTTTon Hell could accommodate that type of thing. I actually remember a few people in law school who had extra time on the exams because of learning disabilities. So, not an unreasonable accommodation, I'm sure. The Dean gave Albie a number and no one ever picked up the phone at that number. So, the rest is Reality TV history. He flunks out and I thought he would call it a day.
Turns out, Albie hired the attorney to fight SeTTTTon Hell with one goal in mind, a letter. Apparently, and I didn't know this, if you flunk out of law school, you are prohibited from attending another law school for two years. Like you'd want to, right? Consider yourself lucky and move on. But, Little Albie is different. He wants a letter from Seton Hall, saying he's fit to go to another law school. What? I guess that's beyond anything in my reality. He wants to go back? Does this happen often? And what makes him think another law school will be better? Forget that. I just can't conceive of someone wanting to go back to law school when he flunked out.
I hope he finds what he's looking for. His brother, Christopher, the kid who didn't go to college and is following in his father's footsteps at the Brownstone (a famous North Jersey wedding and banquet hall) will be far more wealthy than Albie, the lawyer, in the end. I'm willing to place a bet on it.
