The Indian law school experience revolves around the idea of submitting "projects" or "assignments". At the start of the 5 year marathon, many of us used to be petrified about the idea of failing to submit the assignment beyond the "Last Last Day" — the last permissible date for handing in the project, after the stipulated deadline. I found it quite strange that the senior students displayed little or no trepidation at the thought of the impending deadline, while the rest of us rushed to print and submit. Why? Because the seniors knew that if many students asked for more time, for some reason or another, surely the University is not going to flunk them all. So the "Last Last Day" could easily be extended, and it was.
