Some People Might Seize on This as Another Reason to be Upset About Graduation Dues

All 3Ls received this email today:
Dear 3L Class:

I write on behalf of the SBA and the 3L Graduation Committee to bring to your attention an incident that happened just before spring break. Around 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 4, we discovered that a manila envelope containing some graduation dues had been removed from our treasurer's mailbox in Scott Commons. These particular checks had been placed in the mailbox the prior afternoon. Approximately 10 checks were affected. On March 4 and the days since we have worked with Dean Ballenger and the UVA Police Department to attempt to locate the missing checks and respond to a possible theft.

The affected checks were collected between Monday, February 15 and Thursday, February 19, when Graduation Committee members tabled in Hunton-Williams Hall. The Committee maintains an electronic file of all 3Ls who have paid their dues. This file had not, however, been updated to reflect the approximately 10 checks that the Committee collected between February 15 and February 19. If you paid dues at any other time outside of those dates, your check should not be affected and the Committee has a record that you paid.

If you paid graduation dues between February 15 and February 19, please email [redacted] as soon as possible. We are asking people to contact us because we need to notify law enforcement concerning who may be affected. Please contact Chelsea if you have other questions about the status of your dues.

Why are law students such awful, selfish people?

Seriously? Who leaves a manilla envelope full of checks in their Scott Commons box?

So, if my class dues pays for all these events, why do I owe $10 if I want to go on the wine tour?
